As you may have heard, Archbishop Aquila is restoring the sacraments of initiation to their original order in the Archdiocese of Denver. In the coming years, the sacrament of Confirmation will ordinarily be received in third grade during the same liturgy as First Holy Communion. While we know—indeed, we hope—that these changes will raise questions for many, we have great confidence that the answers to those questions will help to deepen and enrich your own experience of the sacraments.
Colorado bishops respond to defeat of fetal homicide legislation in House Committee
(Denver, CO) − Last night, the House State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee sadly voted along party lines (6-5) to defeat Senate Bill 268 which would have recognized unborn children as victims of certain crimes, like those recently perpetrated against baby Aurora in Longmont. It is deeply disappointing that a majority of legislators on the House State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee did not see the urgent need to fix this inadequacy in Colorado law.
Pope Francis in Philadelphia - Join our parish pilgrimage...
As many of you may know, Pope Francis is coming to Philadelphia this fall for the World Meeting of Families! (http://www.worldmeeting2015.org/) Our parish is looking into setting up a pilgrimage to go to the meeting and see and hear the Holy Father. The dates of the meeting are September 22-27, and we would have to add time for travel on each end.
At this point, we are just trying to determine parishioner interest for this once in a lifetime event. If you think that this is something that you would like to learn more about, please use the link below to enter your name, number and ages of family members, and your email. We will utilize this information to obtain cost estimates, method of transportation, accommodations, etc. Once we have more information, we will email all those who expressed interest. You are not committing to anything at this point.
Please prayerfully consider having your family participant. As Archbishop Chaput of Philadelphia has said, this moment is an historic and exhilarating one for all of us to share. It will mark Pope Francis' first ever visit to the United States of America as pope and he will be only the fourth pope to visit our nation. It has the power to transform, in deeply positive ways, not just the spirit of Catholic life in our region, but of our entire community. It will be a moment unlike any other.
