Annunciation Church (Denver)

Denver County

Designed by Frederick Paroth, in a blending of the Gothic and Romanesque Revival styles, the red brick exterior is accented with white cut stone.  The 25-foot-high Carrara marble altar and 34 stained glass windows by Munich artists Franz Mayer and F.X. Zettler enhance the beauty of this 1904 church.

Annunciation Church 

The Capuchins (the Franciscan Order of Friars Minor) worked with parish volunteers and SHF to resurrect this church along with its K-8 school, convent, and rectory.  The SHF’s nearly $233,000 grant allowed workers to restore the exterior brick, improve water drainage, remove hazardous asbestos, redo the electrical system, and replace the roof, rusted pipes, rotted window frames, and front doors.
