The Montelores Catholic community consists of Roman Catholics in Montezuma and Dolores counties in southwestern Colorado.  This area is a rich mixture of physical terrains and cultural heritages - mountains, desert, farm country, people newly arrived and archaeological sites of people who lived in the area more than a thousand years ago.  The area also includes a Ute Indian reservation and Mesa Verde National Park.

Four Roman Catholic churches are active here. Each has its own identity and history, yet many activities are shared.


The churches are:

A Parish Center for the Montelores Catholic community is located at 20 South Market St. in Cortez, 3 blocks south of St. Margaret Mary church on Market Street.

The Montelores Catholic Community is a member of the Diocese of Pueblo, Colorado  http://dioceseofpueblo.org
