Welcome to St. Benedict Catholic Church 

We are a growing Catholic community located in Falcon, Colorado, about 10 miles northeast of Colorado Springs in El Paso County.  Newcomers and visitors are always welcome.  We invite you to join us as we celebrate Mass each Sunday. If you are new to our area, please see our Church Building History page for a consolidated overview of our Parish. 

On October 8, 2017, Bishop Michael Sheridan dedicated our new church and consecrated the altar.  We look forward to celebrating Mass and sacraments in our new church as we continue to spread the faith. Here's a link to the Colorado Catholic Herald October 20, 2017, edition article St. Benedict Dedicates New Church After Long Labor of Love  See pages 10-11.
