Mormon apostles welcomed Bishop Solis as he became the leader of the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City. 

Elder M. Russell Ballard and Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and Elder L. Whitney Clayton of the Presidency of the Seventy attended the installation ceremony for Bishop Solis on Tuesday afternoon, March 7, 2017, at the Cathedral of the Madeleine.

“Latter-day Saints cherish the long-standing friendship we have developed with the Catholic community in Utah and around the world,” said Elder Ballard. “We look forward to partnering with Bishop Solis as we stand together and give witness to Jesus Christ as His disciples.”

“We celebrate the installation of Bishop Solis as the leader of the Diocese of Salt Lake City and the newest member of our faith community in Utah,” added Elder Christofferson.

“We value our long-standing relationship with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,” said Bishop Solis. “Our communities share a call to social justice and love for the poor. The task before us is one of building and strengthening our inclusive communities of faith. I look forward to continuing a culture of dialogue and encounter that leads us together to God.”
