The Archdiocese of Denver is headquartered at the St. John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization in the Cory-Merrill neighborhood of Denver, Colo.

One of the priests named in this year's Attorney General report on clerical sex abuse will have a parole hearing on Monday in Cañon City.

Timothy Evans, 57, abused three children from 1990 to 1995 in Jefferson and Larimer counties. He was convicted of multiple sexual assault charges in 2007 and sentenced to 14 years to life.

Evans is the only priest in Colorado to be tried and convicted of sexual assault since the scandal of widespread abuse in the Catholic Church broke in 2002.

According to the Coloradoan, the hearing is scheduled for 8 a.m. on Monday at the Fremont Correctional Facility in Cañon City.
