Parish History

Fourteen Catholic families met at the Black Forest Community Center in July 1961, to discuss the need for a Catholic parish. Representatives from that group drove to Denver, to present their ideas to Archbishop Urban J. Vehr. Religious instruction for children was their first priority. In 1963 a chaplain from the Air Force Academy celebrated Mass in an open field. On August 14, 1964, Father Wood, a chaplain at St. Francis Hospital, celebrated the first weekly mass. That same year, Archbishop Vehr approved a donation of $50,000 from the Archdiocese for the construction of the church in the Black Forest.

At midnight on December 25, 1965, the first mass was celebrated at Our Lady of the Pines. In 1987, an addition to the church began. This new construction doubled the seating capacity, added six classrooms and a kitchen.

In 1995, Bishop Hanifen assigned Jesuit Father Gerald Borer as sacramental administrator. In 2003, Father Michael Butler was assigned as Sacramental Minister and Deacon Dave Camous was assigned Parish Director. A new church building was constructed in 2004. On December 8, 2004, Bishop Michael J. Sheridan, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, dedicated the new sanctuary. On July 1, 2010, Father Andrzej Szczesnowicz was appointed Pastor of Our Lady of the Pines. On July 1, 2020, Fr. Bradford Noonan was appointed pastor of Our Lady of the Pines.
