Father Brian Larkin, Pastor
A Colorado native, our pastor grew up as the middle child of 3 boys in the foothills southwest of Denver. Fr. Brian was on his way to becoming a boring accountant when God set a new trajectory on his life by calling him to priesthood. FBL (as some call him) is addicted to coffee, the beauty of the mountains, '90s music, and is trying to follow Jesus.

Deacon Darell was catapulted from a cradle Catholic into the permanent diaconate once he realized his children were passing him up on their conversions, spiritual development, and prayer life. God used his friend and colleague, Deacon Joe Donohoe, to nudge him in this direction. Mary and Deacon Darell are thrilled to be appointed to Lourdes, and are so grateful for the support of Fr. Brian and the entire staff!

Amy Stollsteimer, Communications Manager
Amy spent her formative years in her log cabin home, in Berthoud, CO, where she raised chickens, and skinned her knees a lot as a kid.

Amy has been a parishioner since 2008, and handles part-time website and office management, social media, and other projects. She revels in world travel, snowboarding, a captivating book, and can't get enough live music, when she can afford it.

In total, she has received over 13 years of Catholic education here in the Denver Metro Area (and one year of art school, but we don’t talk about that…). She’s a sixth generation Colorado Native and is absolutely brimming with pride for the Centennial State. She likes to draw in her free time and enjoys impromptu road trips, concerts, learning about her faith, and the grooviness of the '70s SoCal rock scene, man.

Patrick Santino, Data Specialist
Patrick was raised in Chicago as the oldest of four, and attended Miami University of Ohio, where he competed on the Cross Country and Track teams before moving out to Denver. With a degree in Mathematics & Statistics and previous work experience, he enjoys extracting meaning from big piles of data. Patrick loves many sports, competitions, and outdoors activities, but his most time-consuming and favorite hobby is cycling—from biking around Lake Michigan, to riding up and down the mountains, to watching the Tour de France—he cannot get enough of it! He also enjoys and spends a large amount of time reading all sorts of books, especially history and biographies—there’s a good chance he’s the biggest Lord of the Rings fan you will ever meet. He is excited to be in a position at Lourdes where he can support the parish community, as well as learn and grow in his Catholic faith.
