Parish History

In 1987, Bishop Richard C. Hanifen identified a clear need for a parish to be established in the rapidly growing northern portion of Douglas County. In a mission diocese with a limited number of priests, Pax Christi was founded, and a lay parish director was appointed with the role of mission organizer to serve the pastoral and administrative needs of the growing community. On June 6, 1988, 40 families gathered to celebrate Mass in the gym of Northridge Elementary School, and Mass continued to be celebrated there for the next 10 years. The parish was served by Jesuit priests from the Sacred Heart Retreat House in Sedalia and Regis University in Denver, as well as other priests in the area.

The Archdiocese of Denver gave 15 acres of land to the Diocese of Colorado Springs for Pax Christi to build a church. After a decade of celebrating Mass in a school gym, the parish of 700 families moved. In May 1999, Bishop Hanifen blessed a new chapel and a multi-use building.

On July 27, 2000, Pax Christi welcomed its first resident pastor, Father Ken Przybyla. At that time, 800 families were registered. In just nine years, the parish grew to more than 1,940 families. On Sept. 29, 2002, Bishop Hanifen dedicated a new church building. Also in 2002, the multipurpose building was retrofitted into an educational, social and office facility, now known as the Christi Center. The office space was remodeled in summer 2009.

In September, 2011, Father Brian Mohan was installed as the second pastor of Pax Christi by Bishop Michael Sheridan. Father Jim Baron was appointed parochial vicar in August 2012 and named parochial administrator in February 2014. Father Marek Krol served as our pastor from July 2015 until June 2020 when we welcomed our current pastor, Father Andrzej Szczesnowicz.
