In 2010, the Center at Cathedral Ridge opened to provide a sanctuary and stimulating environment for people to connect and experience transformation through relationship with God and one another. Reflecting on 10 years of mission and ministry in 2020 is bittersweet. But if abstaining from camps and retreats for a time has revealed anything, it is how much we need the connection and transformation that these immersive experiences provide.
We call Cathedral Ridge “the Center” for a couple of reasons. The first is its location, near the geographic heart of Colorado. Cathedral Ridge aspires to be a central gathering place for people across the geographical, political, socio-economical and theological divides. This is a place to come together and proclaim that though we are many and diverse, we are one body in Christ.
“The Center” also points to its purpose and intent, a place apart where we can center ourselves. Cathedral Ridge aspires to be a thin place where people can come away for a while, reconnect with the still small voice of the holy, and remember their primary identity as beloved children of God.
Camp and retreat ministry will look different until it is safe to gather again. Our values of hospitality and connection have evolved to provide wellness and respite opportunities. Cottages and lodge rooms remain open for individuals, families and small groups. Many are experiencing the peace and beauty of campus in a new way amidst the quiet. You can hear guest reflections here. If you are needing a place of sanctuary, we invite you to explore our retreat and lodging information.
This is a time of great need in our world. If you are able to make a financial gift to Cathedral Ridge, I humbly ask for your support. Booking revenues will be limited until it is safe for groups to physically gather again. Our Board has pledged $5,000 to match contributions this fall. Please give today by mailing a check to Friends of Cathedral Ridge, 1300 Washington St., Denver, CO 80203 or by making a gift online through our Cathedral Ridge Giving Page or through Colorado Gives 2020. Set up a recurring donation and receive a campfire mug as our thanks!
