We are excited to celebrate your child’s Baptism at St. Mary Parish! Any child under the age of seven years can be baptized by the faith of his or her parents. Parents and Godparents must have attended a Baptism prep class within the last two years. Contact David Suddjian to discuss requirements and scheduling.

Bethlehem Sacrament Prep (Grades K–4)
Bethlehem is a family faith-formation program that assists parents in preparing their children to live the Catholic faith. The program includes weekly grade-level children’s classes, parent faith-formation sessions, and family sessions. The Bethlehem program prepares children to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist.
NOTE: The Archdiocese of Denver has instituted the “Restored Order of the Sacraments,” where children normally celebrate their first Reconciliation in 2nd grade, and Confirmation and first Holy Communion in 3rd grade.
Confirmation for 6th–12th Grade
This program is for students grades 6–12 who have not yet received Confirmation. Participants will be asked to participate in the Youth Program (either middle school or high school) in order to further help integrate them and their family at St. Mary’s parish. Additionally, teens and parents will be asked to come to a once per month supplemental class.
Becoming Catholic: RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults (and older children) enter into full Communion with the Catholic Church. It is also appropriate for those baptized Catholics who did not complete the Sacraments of Initiation (Holy Communion and Confirmation). All are welcome to attend sessions and ask questions before making any commitment.
Congratulations on your engagement! We are happy to walk with you as you prepare to enter into this most sacred vocation. The first step is to contact Anthony Fortunato to schedule a meeting and to receive your Marriage Prep Packet.

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).
