In a planned “Day at the Capitol,” clergy and faith leaders met on Thursday, April 26, 2018. With a goal of uniting faith communities to engage and act in the political sphere, Catholic Charities organized a gathering of local pastors and clergy. In attendance were Elder Thomas T. Priday, Area Seventy of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila, among many others. Deacon Geoff Bennett, Vice President of Parish and Community Relations for Catholic Charities spearheaded the event and began the morning with the vision for the group. He invited all to set aside doctrinal differences, “…agree on foundational issues, and tell our legislators that these things are important to us.” Stake presidents, priests, and other attendees shared thoughts on how to carry out this ecumenical vision. Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila spoke next, further driving home the point about Christians’ needs to be active, informed constituents that help enact change. Quoting de Tocqueville, Archbishop Aquila taught, “Liberty cannot be established without morality, nor morality without faith.” The meeting concluded with a presentation from Jenny Kraska, executive director of the Colorado Catholic Conference, and president of the National Association of State Catholic Conference Directors (NASCCD). She helped educate the group about legislative advocacy, what it looks like, and how it’s carried out. The group concluded with a walk to the capitol, where they hoped to meet with local legislators. However, as Kraska taught, with politics you learn to be patient and flexible. Large crowds of teachers protesting salaries also chose Thursday to walk on the capitol; they arrived in such large numbers that religious leaders’ agenda took a back seat. Despite the change of plans, participants shared enthusiasm and gratitude for the meeting.

On February 11th from  7 pm to 8:30 pm Mormon missionaries in the Denver area will present a special musical presentation called “Why I Believe.”

The presentation will feature musical performances from sister and elder missionaries serving in the local area as well as messages which will be shared by recent converts to the Mormon church in Colorado.

The Musical Performance or “fireside” is open to everyone in the community, both members of the faith and those who are not currently of the Mormon faith.

“It promises to be an experience that will build one’s faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and only way back to the father,” says Jacob Paulsen of the Denver North Public Affairs Council. “Come worship the Redeemer through song and testimony!”

No registration or tickets are required to attend. The presentation will be held at a Mormon meetinghouse located in Denver at 2710 S Monaco Pkwy.


To assist victims of the devastating recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean, volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), joined with The Salvation Army to sort and pack donations items at The Salvation Army’s Emergency Services Center in Aurora.

Through well-established existing ties between The Salvation Army and the LDS Church in Denver, LDS volunteers were able to quickly fill service needs. In the past, members of the LDS Church and The Salvation Army have worked together on a variety of service projects. Given the familiarity between organizations, volunteer coordinators utilized clear pathways to quickly respond to hurricane disaster relief efforts from Denver.

Recognizing the timely service response of LDS Church volunteers, Ana Turner, Director of Volunteer Services for The Salvation Army’s Intermountain Division shared: “[The] LDS [response] is amazing! They did such a terrific job! In just 3 hours, they helped pack and sort over 4,200 donations. [The day before], we had over 10,500 donations packed and sorted.”

In the spirit of unity, the LDS Church is thankful to The Salvation Army and all other supporters of the Denver hurricane donation drive for the opportunity to provide needed service to hurricane victims living across the country.

Full-time missionaries from the Denver North Mission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) enjoyed packing and sorting items to help hurricane victims.

Thousands of donated items were prepared for shipment to hurricane victims in Texas and across the country.

 ccd_turkeydrive_nl_11-18-2016-108Today (Nov.18th, 2016) – On a crisp Friday morning, just after Denver’s first snow, dozens of Mormon missionaries serving around the Denver area gathered at The Samaritan House and unloaded a truck full of nearly 3,000 turkeys.

The turkeys will be sent to Catholic parishes throughout Colorado and used to serve dinners at The Samaritan House.

Kathy Mathison, from Denver and member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, worked with Mark Hahn, Volunteer and Parish Relations Coordinator at Catholic Charities.

Kathy called Mark asking what help they needed for the upcoming holiday season.  The answer?  They needed 3,000 turkeys by the end of the week.

On Monday a request was sent to The Church of Jesus Christ’s humanitarian headquarters in Salt Lake City and by Wednesday a truck with 2,912 turkeys was on its way to Catholic Charities.

“This really was a prayer answered.” Said Hahn.  “It’s a way we can reach back to our brothers and sisters and share dignity and compassion.”

Elder and Sister missionaries from the Church unloaded more than half the turkeys before The Samaritan House ran out of room to contain them all.  The remaining turkeys were delivered to the Catholic Charities’ storehouse in Aurora.

“We are happy to serve the community.  It’s awesome to see faiths come together to do something good.” Said missionary, Sister Hudson.

When asked if he minded shuffling turkeys out in the cold, another missionary, Elder Christensen said “It’s always good to come together for a good cause.”

“Thank you for this.  Thank you for allowing this to happen.  We are all working for God.” Hahn said to a group of volunteers.
