There’s Still Time to Give!

St. Mary Parish is currently at 79% of our goal! This is great progress, but there’s room to grow. If you have not yet given, please consider supporting this critical effort.

Donations made to the 2017 Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal will be prudently invested in nearly forty archdiocesan ministries which were created to ease the hardships of the needy, share our Catholic faith, and advance the Church’s teaching and sanctifying mandate. Please be generous.

Please visit www.Archden.Org/GiveToday or call 303.715.3111 to make your gift today.

For many families, education is the ticket out of poverty. For this reason, Catholic Charities is running a school supply drive for local children in need. You can help make a difference by giving children the educational tools for them to succeed!

There are two great ways to help this year:

1) Bring your new school supplies to the drop-off boxes here at St. Mary’s parish the weekend of Aug. 4-6.
2) Make a Cash Donation online at www.ccdenver.org/ssd or mail checks to PO Box 100728 ,Denver, CO 80250-0728.

All of the supplies will benefit those we serve through the ministries at Catholic Charities. Thank you for helping us provide school supplies to 1,000 children!

While everyone was asleep his enemy came and sowed weeds all through the wheat, and then went off. When the crop grew and bore fruit, the weeds appeared as well. The slaves of the householder came to him and said, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where have the weeds come from?’ He answered, ‘An enemy has done this.’ His slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us to go and pull them up?’ He replied, ‘No, if you pull up the weeds you might uproot the wheat along with them. Let them grow together until harvest; then at harvest time I will say to the harvesters, ‘First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles for burning; but gather the wheat into my barn.’” Read More …
