SALT LAKE CITY — Religious gatherings have been the norm here since Mormon settlers arrived in 1847. Along with the biannual conferences of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which is headquartered downtown, the Presbyterian Church (USA) brought 4,000 delegates to town for its annual convention in 1990; six years later, the Southern Baptist Convention held its annual gathering here. In 2015, an estimated 8,000 delegates and visitors to the Episcopal Church's triennial General Convention will take over the Salt Palace Convention Center for nine days.
