If you have recently looked into the possibility of joining the Catholic Church or completing your Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, 1st Holy Communion, Confirmation), please be aware that registration for the 2017-2018 RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) and RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation adapted for Children) programs are currently open.
RCIC is also open to all children who are in 4th grade and above who have not yet received the Sacrament of 1st Holy Communion. Remember, your child must have participated fully in one year of Religious Education/Faith Formation in order to enter into the GIFT Sacramental Preparation Program (for 2nd and 3rd grades only). Please register as soon as possible so all necessary materials can be ordered before the program begins in early September.
If you have any questions at all about the process of entering the Catholic Church, please don’t hesitate to contact Ginger Giesen, Director of Discipleship at firstname.lastname@example.org or (720) 419-0125 or Father Marek Krol at email@example.com. God bless you!

Pax Christi Knights of Columbus Celebrate 25th Anniversary
2017 is the 25th anniversary of the establishment of a Knights of Columbus council at Pax Christi and the 5th anniversary of the fourth degree assembly. In recognition of the event, Bishop Sheridan will be joining us for Mass on July 22nd to assist in the celebration. Please congratulate the Knights on this milestone.
If You’ve Been Coming to Mass for a While, but are not Catholic…
We invite you to take a deeper look at the Catholic faith. Our parish will soon begin a set of sessions, called INQUIRY, to share with others the truths of the Catholic faith. We invite you to learn what Catholics believe in an open and welcoming environment. INQUIRY sessions will be held the month of August. Contact Ginger in the Parish Office for more information.
The Knights of Columbus will once again be selling peaches from Palisades. Peaches will go on sale July 1st and be delivered the weekend of August 12/13. Peaches may be pre-purchased at all weekend masses during July and the first weekend in August.
A case of peaches (approximately 20 pounds) will be $42. A half case is $22. When you order your peaches, payment must be made by cash or check. You will then receive a ticket that can be redeemed when peaches are delivered.
The peach sales represents our council’s main fundraising event and supports many of our charitable programs such as youth scholarships and right-to-life activities.
