Archdiocese of Denver
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.
