We have a New Roof & a New Cross!!!!

Early this spring, the Pueblo Diocese accepted the Archuleta Family Foundation’s request to donate and manage replacement of the church roof.  Not only did they give the approval to more forward but offered us wonderful support in our efforts at the San Juan Catholic Spiritual Center. We were fortunate to receive great work from ZTEC Construction who traveled each day from La Jara, Colorado.


During the roof replacement, we discovered that the cross was very weather-beaten and needed to be replaced.  A new cross was built by Ed Kulp with the help of his wife Kathy.  It was Ed who envisioned the concept of the St. John Paul II Rosary Walk and also constructed the decade monuments.  Ed and Kathy are closely involved with the Archuleta Family Foundation in maintaining and planning events for the Spiritual Center. When the cross was ready to be installed, Fr. Stephen Injoalu, from the San Juan Catholic Community in Monte Vista, was kind enough to bless the cross.

New Pews at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church!!!!

We are so pleased to receive pews from Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Colorado Springs.  Sacred Heart is currently going  through a restoration of their church. It particularly a special transition since the Archuleta family have been parishioners since 1960 and all five of their children attended Sacred Heart School.  Thank you to Fr. Ronald Raab, CSC, Pastor, and all parishioners of Sacred Heart for donating the pews.

The pews were successfully shorted, moved and installed.  We still have projects planned where the extra wood will be re-purposed in the church but it will occur over time.

While we have always been appreciative of the effort to locate and install pews for the church in 2007, we are particularly pleased now to have pews from another Catholic Church and also pews with kneelers!
