Can you be lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, queer or intersex…
Yes! Many of us grew up Catholic or otherwise found ourselves in the Catholic tradition. And we also found ourselves GLBTQI. So over 35 years ago, we founded a community here in Denver for people like us. And we've been an advocate for integrating our spirituality and justice ever since.
We celebrate the authentic Catholic Mass with an ordained priest every Sunday. We welcome people of every sexual orientation and gender identity, those who have divorced & remarried, and anyone who has felt excluded from other faith communities. We accept seekers from every faith background.
We welcome the gifts of each person at our door. And we welcome you.
Join us at 1100 Fillmore Street each Sunday at 5 pm. A social follows Mass on most Sundays. (Easter and Christmas Mass dates and times vary - check this site.)
Palm Sunday (March 25th) - Mass will be at our regular time (5 PM), and the Rev. Sheila Dierks will be our presider. Rev. Dierks is a woman priest associated with the Ecumenical Catholic Church. She regularly presides for a faith community in Boulder. She has celebrated with Dignity Denver a couple of times over the past year. Please come and share the spirit! Because we will be leaving the church in silence in recognition of Holy Week, there will NOT be a social after Mass.
Maundy Thursday (March 29th) - at 7 PM members of Dignity Denver will join the 10:30 Catholic Community for their Holy Thursday service, which includes washing of the feet for those who are wanting to do so.
Good Friday (March 30th) - at 7 PM Dignity Denver will be holding a joint Good Friday service with the 10:30 Catholic Community.
Easter Vigil (Saturday, March 31st) - as is our tradition, Dignity Denver's only Easter service will be a Vigil on Saturday evening at 6 PM. Please join us then for this most important service of our liturgical year. A special social will follow the Vigil in the downstairs social hall. (The 10:30 Catholic Community will be observing its Easter Vigil in the sanctuary at 8 PM.)
Easter Sunday (April 1) - again, as is our tradition, this is the one Sunday of the year when Dignity Denver will NOT have a Mass at our regular 5 PM time.
As always, all of the above services will be held in the Capitol Heights Church located at 11th Avenue and Fillmore Street in Denver, Colorado.
Everybody is welcome! Please come and share the spirit!
