In addition to the Cathedral serving as both a Roman Catholic parish for the downtown Salt Lake City community as well as "the seat" of the bishop and related diocesan functions, it also directly serves parishioners and the community at large in a number of other ways: services to those in need, religious education to both baptized Catholics as well as to those seeking information on the catholic faith; accredited primary school education with a strong emphasis on music; and a vibrant arts and humanities program to foster the traditional role of the cathedral as a community cultural center.
