about our pastor

Rev Mariusz Wirkowski was born, raised, and ordained in northeast Poland.
After his ordination in May 2004, he came to the United States and served the  Diocese of Syracuse, NY. As his first exposure to America, he began his adventure by learning the language and culture of his new home and then serving in three different parishes.
After six years he felt the calling to do missionary work and served in the Diocese of Fairbanks, AK, which is the only missionary Diocese in the United States. While living along the Bearing Sea Coast in remote rural Alaska, he served several Native-Eskimo villages from his home-base at Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Kotlik, AK. He completed his time in the largest U.S. state serving Holy Mary of Guadalupe in Healy, AK and Saint Theresa in Nenana, AK.
Arriving in Colorado in 2015, he served St. Francis de Sales – Our Lady of Guadalupe in Lamar, CO and St. Frances of Rome Parish in Holly, CO, St Mary’s Church in Bristol, and Our Lady of Announcaiation in Springfield for 5 years.

He joined St Pat’s in Telluride in July 2020.


St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Telluride continues our founding tradition of serving all the people of God through prayers, song, worship, and by living out the Gospel every day. We pray that we may be a sign of hope when there is despair; a sign of happiness when there is sorrow; and a continual sign of the Kingdom of God in our homes, in our community, and in our world.
