The Diocese of Cheyenne encompasses the entire State of Wyoming, to include Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. The rich history of Catholicism in Wyoming began on July 5, 1840, when Father Pierre-Jean DeSmet said the first Catholic Mass near Horse Creek, at the Green River Rendezvous, in present-day Sublette County. Since then, with our Diocese established in 1887, we have grown to 33 parishes and missions. Our state is a land of wide open spaces and sparsely populated towns, but our people are faith-filled and tightly-knit, bound together by a love of God, country, community, and a Western spirit unique to this special place.
Bishop-elect Steven Biegler will be ordained and installed as the 9th Bishop of the Diocese of Cheyenne on Monday, June, 5, 2017, Memorial of Saint Boniface, at 2pm MST at the Cheyenne Civic Center, 510 West 20th Street.
Doors will open at 1pm. Seating is limited. Overflow will be at St. Mary’s Catholic School, 2200 O’Neil Avenue, where the Mass will be able to be seen via livestream.
For those not able to attend, a link for the livestream will be available on this website and the program will be aired LIVE on EWTN.
The principal consecrator will be The Most Reverend Samuel Aquila, Archbishop of Denver, in the presence of The Most Reverend Christopher Pierre, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States.
