The Christian Life Movement (CLM) is a name you will hear a lot around the Archdiocese of Denver and Holy Name Catholic Parish. This Ecclesial movement finds it’s roots in 1971 in Lima (Peru), when the Sodalitium Christianae Vitae was founded and was approved by St. John Paul II in 1994. In 2009, Archbishop Chaput entrusted Holy Name Parish to the CLM, which serves as their Denver “home base.”
The CLM is comprised of people in all states of life, forming small communities of faith, striving for holiness in daily life. Many families and individuals find in the CLM their spiritual family. There are also consecrated men (Sodalits) and women (Fraternas) that work in several apostolates in the Archdiocese of Denver and are devoted to the spiritual formation of its members.
You can usually spot the Sodalits and Fraternas sitting in the front two pews on the left side at Sunday Mass. The Sodalit brothers live on our campus in the parish rectory. The Fraternas live on Auraria campus in Downtown Denver.
