Diocese of Cheyenne Menu

Welcome to the Diocese of Cheyenne website!

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.

The Most Reverend Steven Biegler is named the new Bishop of the Diocese of Cheyenne.

With great joy we received the news that our Holy Father, Pope Francis, announced in Rome today, the appointment of The Most Reverend Steven Biegler as the Ninth Bishop of Cheyenne.

Bishop-elect Biegler, 57, is pastor of the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Rapid City, South Dakota. Bishop-elect Biegler is also the Vicar General for the Diocese of Rapid City.

The Installation Mass will be held June 5, 2017. Welcome, Bishop-elect Biegler!
