Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Denver Celebrates Dedication of New Church

Archbishop Aquila, Metropolitan of DenverFr. James Jackson, FSSP, and the parishioners of Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish have seen the fruits of their common vision realized in the dedication of their new parish church. The dedication came this past Saturday, March 23, 2013, amid the snows of late winter.

Undaunted by the elements, priests and parishioners welcomed His Excellency Samuel J. Aquila, Archbishop of Denver, along with our District Superior, Fr. Eric Flood, FSSP, and the Archbishop’s secretary, Fr. Matthew Book, for the dedication of the new church.

Established in 1996 in Littleton, Colorado (a suburb of Denver), this is one of the District’s older apostolates. In recent years the priests and parishioners of the community realized they were in need of a new church, with space becoming limited and the previous building becoming too difficult to maintain.  The idea of a new parish was preached, choices and plans were made, and finally, construction was completed. The priests and faithful of the parish can now enjoy the result of their great endeavor. See the progress of construction in Renewal: Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Denver Builds a New Parish Home.

The North American District congratulates the community on their beautiful new home.  Some first images of the dedication appear below.  Expanded coverage and pictures from the dedication will be seen both here and in our newsletter.
