Father Rowland spent his first weekend with the St. Pius X Parish and had a small welcome reception after Sunday Mass. St. Pius X is very pleased to welcome Father Rowland into our community. Here is an excerpt from an article in the Intermountain Catholic about Father Rowland:
Fr. Rowland Nwokocha was ordained a priest on Aug. 2, 1997 in Nigeria, where he served in the Diocese of Okigwe in various ministries: associate pastor, pastor, principal, hospital chaplain and chaplain for the Knights of Columbus. He also was a priest in residence in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for three years. He arrived in the Diocese of Salt Lake City on June 1, 2013, and has served as parochial vicar at St. Ambrose Parish and as a hospital chaplain in the Salt Lake City area.
