DENVER -- Denver's Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception ramped up security Sunday.
People leaving Mass have been harassed on the corner of West Colfax Avenue and Pennsylvania Street, church-goers claimed.
This month, the cathedral locked the doors between services because of safety concerns and criminal problems nearby.
The monsignor said the long-term plan is to help the area evolve into more a neighborhood.
This change might result in a more neighborly sense of residents looking out for each other.
