Our Lady of Light Monastery in Denver, CO

In 1987, our community in Irapuato, Guanajuto, Mexico, agreed to establish a monastery in Denver. The canonical procedures were initiated to arrange for the new foundation. The President of the Federation and the Abbessof the monastery in Irapuato, came to Denver to meet with Fr. Charles Chaput and Archbishop Stafford and look at possible housing sites. The former rectory of St. Patrick’s Church was chosen.

After a time of prayer and reflection, a group of sisters volunteered for the new foundation, and ten were selected to come to Denver to start the Monastery of Our Lady of Light. We left our home monastery in Irapuato and arrived in Denver the night of November 17, 1988 to start our new adventure of faith in the Mile High City.
