Our Mission

As members of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Telluride, we strive to continue on in the 123-year-old tradition of our founders in serving all the people of God through prayers, song, worship, and by living out the Gospel every day of our lives. We pray that we may be a sign of hope when there is despair; a sign of happiness when there is sorrow; and a continual sign of the Kingdom of God in our homes, in our community, and in our world.


St. Patrick’s Church is one of the most beautiful settings in the San Juan Valley for your wedding. Join the thousands of wonderful and happy couples who have used our church to consecrate their vows. We can also host your reception in our lower level gathering space.
