our Mission

Our spreading of the Good Word is limited only by our imaginations and the strength of our prayers as He provides all that is needed when asked with generous hearts.

As we reach out to those not coming to Church, to the homebound, and those who wish to find a loving home with Jesus Christ we are most pleased as servants of God to be entrusted with the spiritual wellbeing of all those in the community we are a part of. Our programs and events bring long-time church members, returning Catholics, and new converts together to build community, encourage spiritual growth, and extend support to neighbors in need. Your goodness allows our parish to continue in the Gospel mission of reaching out to others.

Join our community.
Get involved.

Our history

Guardian Angels parish in Denver, CO

Entry to Guardian Angels Church

Guardian Angels parish was established in 1953, and on December 15, 1954, Archbishop Vehr solemnly blessed our newborn church. The theme of that dedication still holds true today: Every church has its patron saint, but no church will have so many people in heaven directly interested in its welfare as does this one dedicated to the Guardian Angels. This parish will have as many patrons as there are souls of parishioners, for every person has a Guardian Angel.

In 1962, Guardian Angels Catholic School opened with kindergarten through sixth grade classes, staffed by the Franciscan sisters from the Marycrest Convent. Seventh and eighth grade classes were added as the years progressed. Today, our school continues to provide outstanding quality education and in-depth faith enrichment as well as a vibrant active preschool childcare program.
