Family-Centered and More Fully Alive!
The family is not a closed circle, but a star that radiates and opens outwards to the world. (Priests for the Family, 32)
Recently, certain parishes in the Archdiocese of Denver have been victims of various email and telephone scams. The specifics vary, but what these incidents have in common is that they involve the perpetrators contacting parishioners directly, posing as priests or other parish staff members, and asking for immediate financial assistance or personal financial information (credit card numbers, etc.). In the case of the email scams, the perpetrators have been able to convincingly mimic the priests’ own email accounts.
The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they all saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age” (Matthew 28:16-20).

The Spanish Exchange program needs families to host Spanish students (age 14—18) from June 30—July 22. Students in this program stay with American families, take English lessons, and participate in the life of the parish. Families may host for 1—3 weeks (3 weeks is optimal). It’s a fantastic experience you will always remember!
