Welcome to the new website of the
Catholic Lawyers Guild of Colorado

St. Thomas More, saint and lawyer, is our patron and our inspiration. Thomas was born in 1478, called to the Bar in 1501, and after an illustrious career, became the Lord Chancellor of England in 1529. He incurred the wrath of King Henry VIII when he resigned as Chancellor rather than acknowledge the King as Supreme Head of the English Church. In 1535, Thomas was committed to the Tower of London, tried for treason and executed. On May 19, 1935, Pope Pius XI canonized Thomas. Learn more about the Guild.
