FAMILY FAITH FORMATION

Families with children in grades 1-8 are invited to a monthly session that will meet on the FIRST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH 6-7pm. Upon registration, more information about dates and schedules will be sent. Everyone in the parish is invited to these nights as well!

SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION

Those preparing for First Communion, First Reconciliation or Confirmation are required to participate in an additional monthly session that will meet every THIRD THURSDAY OF THE MONTH 6-7pm.

Confirmation preparation will be 4th-6th grade.

Sacraments1.jpg

SACRAMENTS OF INITIATION

Baptism

Parents who wish to have their child baptized must be a registered, contributing member for at least 6 months. In the rite of Baptism, parents are called to be the first and best teachers of their children in the ways of the faith. 

The parish is only able to attest to this by the ongoing participation and contribution of parents. 

A baptismal preparation class is required prior to the baptism. Call the parish office at 303-388-1643 for more information and to register for the class.

Holy Eucharist

Elementary faith formation is offered from September - May. Students who have reached the age of reason will be prepared to receive the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist. Please call the parish office for more information and to register for our Family Faith Formation program

Confirmation

Confirmation is the sacrament which completes Baptism. Classes for Confirmation are held from September - May. Please call the parish office for more information and to register for our Family Faith Formation program

Restored Order

In the Archdiocese of Denver parishes are in the process of the restored order for the Sacraments of Initation. We begin this process by lowering the age for the reception of Confirmation and concluding the reception of the Initiation sacraments with Holy Eucharist. Further information will be forthcoming on how this will affect our parish. For more information about the restored order please click here.


SACRAMENTS OF HEALING

Reconciliation/Confession

Classes are taught September - May and students receive the sacrament of Reconciliation prior to the reception of First Holy Communion. Please call the parish office for more information and to register for our Family Faith Formation program

Confessions are offered on Saturdays from 3:00pm - 4:00pm or by appointment.

Anointing of the Sick

Following morning Mass on the first Fridays of the month the sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is offered to those persons in need of this healing sacrament. Individuals who are going into the hospital or who have a terminal illness should request the Anointing of the Sick from the priest before or after the weekday or weekend Masses.
