Welcome From Father Lucas Grubbs

Priest-In-Charge, St. John’s Ouray


Welcome to St. John’s…

…A Sacred Space for Mountain Prayers

Greetings! My name is Fr. Lucas Grubbs and I serve as the Priest-In-Charge here at St. John’s Episcopal Church in beautiful Ouray, Colorado. This community of faith has worshipped in this space and in this region for well over 130 years. We are a cornerstone of the Ouray faith community, and as our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry proclaims, part of the Jesus Movement. We are one small but beautiful branch of the Church throughout the world. Check out the history of St. John’s on this website. And get to know the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion of which we are faithful members by clicking on the links.

More importantly, St. John’s is a parish where you find your home! I am constantly delighted when folks new to the church or just dropping in for a visit remark as to how much this place feels like home. And it is! Your home in the mountains: for prayer, fellowship, and growing in faith. Welcome!

If you have found this website, know that you are home. You are a beloved child of God and you are among friends here at St. John’s. We strive to understand God better, we aim to follow the way of Jesus in our daily lives, to be faithful people with rich and active lives of prayer, and to be present to one another in both the good times and the times of challenge and struggle.

Please feel free to reach out! I can be contacted at fatherlucas.ouray@gmail.com to answer any questions you might have, to get together for a coffee or a meal to get to know one another, and simply to welcome you to this beautiful community of faith.

I hope to see you at the parish or around town. Until then, know you are in my daily prayers and that you are a beloved child of God.

Yours faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Fr. Lucas Grubbs+
