The word pax is Latin for peace. We decided upon it because our patron saint Francis ended his letters with the phrase "Pax et Bonum," which means peace and every good thing.
The labyrinth, which we have included examples of in the attachments, is a sacred symbol for us and should be incorporated into design submissions.
People who attend Pax are 20-60 year olds living in Boulder County, Colorado - a progressive, outdoor loving, spiritual melting pot on the front range of the Rockies.
What makes us different from other churches in the area is that we are focused on contemplative spiritual experiences that transform people at the deepest levels. We welcome and celebrate people of every race, gender and sexual orientation. A number of people who have been hurt and rejected by the church in the past have found healing and a place to belong at Pax.
While we are progressive, we value the beauty and rootedness of the liturgy, communion and the creeds of the early/ancient church.
Here's more on who we are:
Who Are We?

Inclusive & Egalitarian - all people regardless of gender, race, sexuality, spiritual background are welcomed and affirmed
