Together We Build Our Future
In July 2012, St. Benedict Parish purchased a thirty-five acre ranch that includes two houses and a large barn/loafing shed. The property is located at 12150 Falcon Highway in Falcon, Colorado. Parishioners assisted with extensive clean up of the property. We now have a place to call our own. The barn is our Parish Hall. One house serves as our Parish Office. The other house will become a rectory for a future parish priest.
Parish Pastoral Center
After eleven years of celebrating Mass in a school gymnasium, we are eager to build our church. Our plan is to remodel the Parish Hall into our church.
Art C Klein Construction Inc., our architect, provided us with a plan for renovating the structure. The renovation plan provides us with the most economical way to meet St. Benedict’s liturgical and pastoral needs for the near future. The primary goal of the plan is to create a simple, dignified church. The secondary goal is to provide St. Benedict Parish with a facility that for programs, presentations, and social gatherings.
