This church is one of three twin-spire churches in the Denver metropolitan area. (The other two are St. Dominic's and the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception) This was popular church architecture during Denver's 1920s "City Beautiful" era, which left such a lasting imprint on the metro area. The building was constructed in 1924, and along with the spires, has the standard neo-Gothic architecture. The twin spires tower over the west side of City Park, lending for a good photo opportunity. Open monday to friday from 7am onwards, Saturday 7am and 5pm, and on sunday at 7:30am, 10am and 6pm onwards.
