Additional observations Assumption is a parish of the Archdiocese of Denver founded by Italian immigrants in 1912. At one time it was entrusted into the care of Servite Fathers; Servite Sisters founded its school in 1920. Improvements were made to the parish through the years, including the addition of a bell tower in the 1940s. It’s a strongly pro-life parish with pronounced Marian devotion. The church has an attractive interior with beautiful statues, stained glass, paintings, altar rail, and traditional altar and architecture.
