{denver} local cathedral basilica

March 30, 2015

Denver’s Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception is a towering part of the city’s skyline though not exactly located where all the rest of the tall buildings are. My sister and I visited this beautiful church twice. The first day, we noticed that there were tons of people inside and couldn’t really figure out what was going on, perhaps some kind of special event so after hanging around the outside for a few pictures, we decided to postpone our look around inside. The next day, we went back and saw the inside of this beautiful Basilica. In order for a church or cathedral to be named a basilica, it has go through a whole vetting process and be officially recognized by the Vatican. This building is totally worthy of the designation considering the shear amount of stained glass, its vaulted ceilings, and the detail in the stone work. What a sight!

I am very glad we went back and tried to open the door of the empty Cathedral the second day. Otherwise, we would have been been able to see the inside of this Denver mother church.
