FOCUS / Campus Ministry

Our parish is located less than 10 minutes away from Colorado School of Mines, a university devoted to engineering and applied sciences, with a special focus on stewardship of our natural resources. Founded in 1874, CSM has been part of our Golden community for over 140 years. CSM also has a thriving Catholic community that is nurtured and supported through FOCUS ministry and Mines Campus Catholic Ministry. Support from our parish for the CSM Ministries is very appreciated.
