3. The Diocese of Cheyenne encompasses the entire state of Wyoming and has less than 50 priests traveling around 100,000 square miles. This is St. Edward’s Mission Church in Kinnear, located over 4 ½ hours from the capital city of Cheyenne. Without support from the Catholic Home Missions Appeal, the Diocese of Cheyenne would struggle to sustain necessary parish life in remote areas such as this one.
