St. John The Baptist Church

Clergy

Fr. Humberto Márquez, Pastor 
 
 

Fr. Daniel Ciucci, Parochial Vicar
I was born in Idaho in 1988, and grew up in Boulder where I attended Foothills Elementary, Sacred Heart of Jesus for middle school, and Fairview High School. I have a business degree from CU Boulder. I am the oldest of three boys. One of my brothers lives in Washington state and the other is in New York
 
I decided to enter seminary while I was in college. I knew I wanted to be a priest because I came to trust in God, who kept placing the notion on my heart from the time I was in the 8th grade. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be happy, but He gave me great grace to trust in Him. I went to St. John Vianney Seminary in Denver, and was ordained a priest on May 13, 2017. My favorite thing about being a priest is being a conduit of God’s pardon and peace during confession
 
In my spare time I love to cook. I also enjoy hiking and skiing. I am very happy and excited to be here at St. John the Baptist. I very much like that this parish sings strongly and well. I hope that continues to be strengthened. It will be a great grace for me to learn how to be a priest here in this community. It is my hope that we as a parish grow in devotion to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
 
Please call me Fr. Daniel.
