St. Patrick was established in July 1981 as a part of the Archdiocese of Denver, with Father John Slattery as
founding pastor. In 1984, it became a part of the newly established Diocese of Colorado Springs. From a start of
30 families, St. Patrick’s has grown to more than 6,700 members.
In April 1987, the original church facility was dedicated. In December 2004, an intensive nine-month construction
project was completed and a new Center for Formation and Mission (CFM) was dedicated. A major renovation
and remodeling of the sanctuary of the church was also completed. In July 2012, the parish celebrated the elimi-
nation of its entire debt on the center, with Father Larry Solan burning the mortgage papers. The Bonzel Hall and
Church Kitchen were renovated in 2014.
