About Us

Holy Ghost Church Catholic Church
Holy Ghost Church Catholic Church

The present-day Holy Ghost Church was dedicated on July 8, 1943. However, the parish has its roots in the 1860 construction of St. Mary’s Cathedral, the first Catholic church in Denver. Since our founding, it has been our pleasure to dedicate our service to our fellow worshipers.

Since 2001, priests and brothers of the Oblates of the Virgin Mary have staffed Holy Ghost Church. We are here to provide you guidance on your spiritual journey. No matter where you are on the path to the Lord, we’re here to help. We guide men and women who are hoping to experience the joy of encountering the Lord through the scriptures and the sacraments.

Explore our parish activities and see how you can express your faith and become involved with the church from social ministry, weddings, RCIA, lectors, religious education and clubs and bible study.

Pastor’s Greeting

Dear Friend in Christ,

On behalf of my brother Oblates serving at Holy Ghost Church, welcome! We are so glad for your interest in this church. Whether you just stop in to pray or go to confession, or whether Holy Ghost becomes your spiritual home here in Denver, we are here for you!

We pray that everyone who comes here would find a deep relationship with the Lord our God that overflows into a community of holiness and charity, both within our own parish and throughout the surrounding region.

In Christ,
Fr. Paul Nguyen, OMV

Come Holy Spirit

fill the hearts of your faithful

enkindle in them the fire of your love.

Send forth your Spirit, Lord, and we shall be created.

And you shall renew the face of the earth.

O God, who instructed the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit,

grant by the same Spirit that we may be truly wise and ever rejoice in his consolation.

Through Christ, our Lord.

Amen
