Join us in welcoming Bishop Coffey to Denver the Creatio way! The afternoon will start with a nice hike along the Independence Mountain Trail with the Bishop and his brother, Jim Coffey, who is the Vice President of Advancement for the Papal Foundation. From there we will go to a private dinner with Jim and Bishop Coffey, where we will be able to have some great conversations and share a meal together.

The entire event will be limited to under 30 people so if you are receiving this invitation, know that we must really want to celebrate with you! We appreciate all of the support you have shown Creatio and want to thank you with this special event!

This will be a great opportunity to enjoy local BBQ and beer with the Creatio community and the Coffey brothers. We can’t wait to see you there!
