The parishes of the Durango Deanery – five pastoral units of six parishes and eight missions – began their listening sessions in the spring of 2012 and completed them in early summer.
Our five Catholic campus ministers brought together students from Adams State University, CSU Pueblo, Western State Colorado University, Colorado Mesa University, and Ft. Lewis College for the annual combined retreat.

Response to the Pastoral Visits began in the Grand Junction Deanery about one year ago. The pastors, deacons and parish staff members of the nine pastoral units in Grand Junction – comprising ten parishes and seven missions – began the task of drawing from the pastoral visits feedback and their own ministry experience to move toward setting ministry priorities for the deanery.
