Mile High City

The retreat in Boise went well and now I am switching hats and promoting religious vocations in Denver, Colorado. This is a three day event which brings all the 6th & 11th graders of the Archdiocesan Catholic schools to one location to learn more about priesthood and consecrated life. The days include worship and praise, Holy Mass, panel discussions, question and answer periods, exploring the religious vocations exhibit area, a scavenger hunt and lunch.

The location of this event is being held at a Denver Church that can only be described as the "mega" Catholic Chuch of the 21st century. It is a recently remodeled church that boasts a membership of over 21,000 members. The main body of the church contains a state of the art audio-visual system, great lighting, exquisite furniture and beautiful sacred art.
