NEW Parish COVID-19 Update from Fr. Javier

Dear Parish Family,

EXCELLENT NEWS! All the priests, with the exception of Fr. James, tested negative for COVID-19. We will be able to resume our sacramental duties immediately. This is as great a relief for us as I’m sure it is for you. We will simply exercise extra caution for the time being (i.e. wearing a mask while distributing Communion).

Fr. James continues to rest and recuperate. He is experiencing the normal, flu-like symptoms of the disease, but does not have any respiratory problems or other serious issues (praise God!).

We are very grateful for all your prayers and support, and for your encouraging replies to the earlier Flocknote.  

Please continue to offer prayers for Fr. James, and to thank God for his protecting help.

God bless,
Fr. Javier

STATE FUNDING OF PRIVATE SCHOOLS

TAKE ACTION TODAY!

From the Colorado Catholic Conference: Congress recently passed a massive stimulus bill that includes $2.75 billion in aid for struggling private schools in the wake of the pandemic — including our Catholic schools. This new funding is called the “Emergency Assistance to Non-Public Schools” (EANS) Program.

 However, in order for our Catholic schools to obtain these funds, Governor Polis must apply for this money before February 8, 2021. If Gov. Polis fails to act, our Catholic schools, students, and families will miss this important source of help in a very difficult school year. 

 Please tell your governor to make sure ALL private schools, including our Catholic schools, receive the aid they are due under federal law. Click here to submit a pre-written comment or feel free to write your own.
