Fr. Gregory K. Ames is a Priest of the Archdiocese of Denver. Affectionately known as, “Fr. Greg” he has served in various parishes over his 30 years of active ministry including: St. Anne’s in Arvada, Sacred Heart in Boulder, St. Jude’s in Lakewood, St. Peter’s in Greeley and Immaculate Heart of Mary in Northglenn.  Fr. Greg has had extensive experience with youth.  He has served as Chaplain of Mullen High School and Holy Family High School. Since 1993 he has taken nearly a thousand young people to World Youth Days around the globe.  He speaks tenderly to the elderly and as he cares for his aging parents has grown to have a deep affection and appreciation for their journey.  He was the confessor to the Benedictine Sisters of St. Walburga Abbey for nearly ten years, giving him a great insight into the contemplative life and spirituality of St. Benedict.  Apart from his many years of ministry Fr. Greg is a cancer survivor. Because of his cancer, his ministry changed dramatically and Fr. Greg began his work with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal and Fr. Benedict Groeschel.  For nearly three years Fr. Greg ministered to the homeless at St. Anthony’s Shelter in the south Bronx and then through Catholic Charities in Fr. Collins.
