Local News

WASHINGTON (News4Utah) – Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) took to the Senate floor Monday afternoon to honor the life of President Thomas S. Monson, the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Monson died last week after serving as president of the LDS Church for nearly a decade. Read more about his life and legacy.

“President Monson’s example of intimate, individual ministry underscored what was most remarkable about his leadership: Although he presided over a church of millions, his focus was always on the one. Although tasked with making administrative decisions affecting thousands of people the world over, his lifelong commitment was to serving individuals in need. Although an expert manager, he was, first and foremost, a disciple of Jesus Christ,” said Hatch as he spoke on the Senate floor.
