Becoming Catholic: RCIA
Are You Looking For Information On Becoming Catholic?
Perhaps you, your spouse, a family member, or a friend are feeling called by God to become a member of His beloved Church. The ancient initiation process of the Catholic (aka “universal”) Church is called the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA).
This process is for anyone who wants to become a member of the Church through the sacraments and also for those individuals who need to complete their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist). The process is available for children, teens, and adults.
This ancient rite will form you in the ways of Christ and the Church and teach you how to develop an intimate relationship with our loving God through prayer, the sacraments, and especially the Eucharist.
All are welcome! Contact Rachael at email@example.com or 720.283.4726 to inquire about the process or to ask questions about the faith!
Learn about our upcoming RCIA Information Session here!

Do you need help planning a funeral?
Please contact Mike Moyer to make arrangements or ask questions at 720.283.4737 or email@example.com
St. Mary Parish wants to support your family when a loved one has died by offering a Mass of Christian Burial where we gather to offer worship, praise and thanksgiving to God for the gift of a life which has now been returned to God, the author of life and the hope of the just. We will help you arrange a date and time for the service, select music and readings, and prepare in other ways for the celebration of Mass. We offer simple receptions that follow the funeral liturgy. You may also choose to plan the details of the funeral before a death has occurred.
Scheduling the Funeral Liturgy requires coordination among the Church, the funeral home/mortuary, the cemetery and the family. When a loved one has passed, please contact St Mary’s Funeral Coordinator before you begin the scheduling process with the funeral home/mortuary.

Anointing of the Sick
Anointing of the Sick is the sacrament that is received by those who are ill or suffering. By the sacred anointing and the prayer of the priest, the whole Church commends those who are sick to Christ. The sick person receives the Holy Spirit’s gifts of strength, faith, peace, and courage, and his or her suffering is united with the suffering of Christ for the building up of the Church. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1520-23).
Do you need to schedule Anointing of the Sick?
If you are calling during our normal office hours (M-F 8:00 am-4:30 pm), please call the parish office 303.798.8506 and tell the receptionist you are requesting Anointing of the Sick. If you are calling outside of our normal office hours, please contact our answering service at 303.281.9833.
