Cathedral of St. John in the Wilderness

1350 Washington Street

Denver, CO 80203

Opened: 1911

Architects: Tracy and Swartwout

This Late Gothic Revival cathedral is the seat of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Colorado. Like many large Episcopal churches, it had an excellent traditional music program and I was a member of the choir for about four months until the service schedule and my academic workload became irreconcilable.
