Sacramental emergencies outside parish office hours, please call the parish office (303-422-9173) and follow the message instructions to be forwarded to the appropriate person.
Sacrament of Penance:
Saturday - 3:30 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. in the Chapel
Or call the office for an appointment with one of our priests.
Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick:
Please call the parish office if someone is ill or hospitalized and would like to be anointed, or if you would like to make arrangements to come into the office or to a daily Mass to receive the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick.
The New Catechism tells us that this sacrament “has as its purpose the conferral of a special grace on the Christian experiencing the difficulties inherent in the condition of grave illness or old age. The proper time for receiving this holy anointing has certainly arrived when the believer begins to be in danger of death because of illness or old age. Each time a Christian falls seriously ill, he or she may receive the Anointing of the Sick, and also when, after he or she has received it, the illness worsens.”
Those preparing for surgery may also be anointed, even a few days in advance of the operation.
Please note that most hospitals will no longer release the names of their patients for privacy reasons, so we must rely on you to inform the parish of a loved one in the hospital. Such information is also helpful when our parish Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion visit the hospitals.
Sacrament of Confirmation, Baptism, First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation:
We have many programs to prepare you for these sacraments that are age appropriate.
Persons over the age 18 will go through the R.C.I.A. process.
Sacrament of Matrimony:
Marriage preparation is a comprehensive program designed to equip the couple to live a joy-filled sacramental marriage and ensure the “happily ever after” that couples long for. Please allow 10-12 months for preparation. There are four major components:
- Practical life skills
- The theology of the sacrament of marriage and the theology of the body
- Natural family planning
- Review of a FOCCUS inventory
