Unique Religious Settings
There are a few places around Denver that offer unique religious experiences, beyond a traditional church setting.
The Mother Cabrini Shrine (20189 Cabrini Blvd., 303/526-0758, www.mothercabrinishrine.org) is just off I-70 as you drive west into the foothills. Visitors can walk up 373 steps to the top of a hill where in 1912 Mother Cabrini made a cross and heart shape from white rocks nearby. There are many places for quiet contemplation, mass daily, and a large visitors center that sells videotapes and books about Mother Cabrini.
Weather permitting, a free Easter Sunday sunrise service is held annually at the stunning Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
There are several area churches with indoor or outdoor labyrinths — maze-like circular footpaths used for meditative quiet contemplation. Central Presbyterian Church (1660 Sherman St., 303/839-5500, www.centraldenver.com) has an indoor labyrinth that is available during certain days and times.
St. Barnabas Episcopal Church (1280 Vine St., 303/359-7673, www.saintb.com) has an outdoor labyrinth that is always open; the church also has scheduled walks throughout the year. To find other labyrinths, go to the Labyrinth Society website.
