Give God A Second Thought!

Parish Mission:

by Fr. John Collins, C.S.P.
Monday, December 12th – Wednesday December 14th
Morning Session: After 9:00am Mass (including Monday)
Evening Session: 7:00pm each evening

This Mission is a unique and timely opportunity to revisit our roots and evaluate our relationship with God and each other.

This Mission is also unique due to the fact that it is being conducted by Paulist Father John Collins whose approach is humorous, down to earth and a joy to behold.
Father John will be preaching at all of the Masses the weekend prior to the 3 day Mission so you can evaluate first hand how enjoyable this Mission promises to be.

Don’t hesitate to bing a friend who might have wandered away from the Church. This might be the golden opportunity for that person to find peace and a way home, back to the church.

There is no need to sign up ahead of time, just mark the dates on your calendar and prepare for a positive, uplifting series of sessions. You’ll be glad you did!

Most Holy Trinity: Our Father in Heaven, who chose Mary as the fairest of your daughters;Holy Spirit, who chose Mary as your Spouse; God the Son, who chose Mary as your Mother,in union with Mary we adore your majesty and acknowledge your supreme, eternal dominion and authority.


Most Holy Trinity, we put the United States of America into the hands of Mary Immaculate in order that she may present the country to you. Through her, we wish to thank you for the great resources of this land and for the freedom which has been its heritage.

Through the intercession of Mary, have mercy on the Catholic Church in America. Grant us peace. Have mercy on our president and on all the officers of our government Granat us a fruitful economy, born of justice and charity. Have mercy on capital and industry and labor. Protect the family life of the nation. Guard the precious gift of many religious vocations. Through the intercession of our Mother, have mercy on the sick, the tempted, sinners – on all who are in need.

Mary, Immaculate Virgin, our Mother, Patroness of our land, we praise you and honor you and give ourselves to you. Protect us from every harm. Pray for us, that acting always according to your will and the will of your divine Son, we may live and die pleasing to God. Amen.

The Marian Jubilee!

Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are thou among women . . .

. . . and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners . . .

. . . now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

One way the pope wants to show the church’s “maternal solicitude” is to send out “missionaries of mercy” that is, specially selected priests who will preach and teach about God’s mercy throughout the year. They will be given special authority, the pope said, “to pardon even those sins reserved to the Holy See.”
October 8th-9th, 2016

Mass at Mother Cabrini Shrine


– June 26th at 10:00am

Father Brian Morrow will be celebrating Mass at Mother Cabrini Shrine, 20189 Cabrini Boulevard in Golden, CO 80401. There will be a collection taken during Mass as a donation to the shrine.

Lunch will be $10 per person.

Mother Cabrini Shrine is a shrine to Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini, known as Mother Cabrini. Mother Cabrini loved the mountains of Colorado. During her journeys in 1902 to visit the Italian workers and their families in the Clear Creek, Argentine, and South Park mining districts, Frances X. Cabrini discovered a property on the east slope of Lookout Mountain owned by the town of Golden and purchased it as a summer camp for her charges at the Queen of Heaven Orphanage in Denver, CO.

The fresh water spring she established has never stopped running. Many pilgrims, through their faith, believe the water has brought healing and peace to their lives.
