Denver’s ‘angel of charity,’ considered for sainthood, is celebrated at special Mass
DENVER — Thursday marked the 100th anniversary of the death of Julia Greeley. The woman, born into slavery and known as Denver’s angel of charity, is on her way to likely become Colorado’s first saint. In 2016, Denver’s archbishop proposed Greeley’s candidacy for sainthood -- a long process that seeks the approval of Pope Francis. The faithful in Colorado, who have studied Greeley's life, are confident the woman is still working miracles.
