Saturday

On Saturday we attended Bishop Conley’s Mass of Thanksgiving at his new residence at Mary, Mother of God Church. A converted Mormon church, it is a small but pretty Church in downtown Denver.

After Mass there was a reception at the Rectory, which was open to walk through. The pastor of the parish had moved his belongings so Bishop Conley got the larger bedroom and office which was modestly decorated with a picture, I believe, of St. Thomas More and a throw rug honoring Kansas. The rectory itself had some beautiful religious artwork and was quite a comfortable and cosy living quarters.

Cecilia was a bit on edge with all the people, so we went to McDonalds where we knew she would at least eat something. Then we went to the Molly Brown house (think Kathy Bates in Titanic or Debbie Reynolds in the Unsinkable Molly Brown) but did not go inside as strollers were not allowed and we had ours with us and were not comfortable leaving it outside. From there we went to the Colorado History Museum, which was quite nice. It is of moderate size but considers Colorado’s history with Native Americans, Gold Rush Explorers, Women, Ranchers, Trains, Silver and even had a special exhibit on Italian Immigrants in Colorado.

Dinner was at the Hard Rock Cafe overlooking the 16th Street Mall. We had a hard time getting Cecilia to tear herself away from the window and eat as our view included a few horse-drawn carriages.
