News & Events
IMPORTANT Safety Information for Faith Formation Families
Starting January 26, Faith Formation classes will meet in the new ministry center. It is mandatory that parents drop off and pick up preK-Confirmation students at the main entrance of the facility. If you choose to walk your child to class from the church, please use the sidewalk east of the north parking lot and do not walk through the parking lot. Please do not let students walk alone to class! Your children's safety is our priority as we transition to our new class location, so please help us follow our new safety measures to ensure they get to and from classes without harm!

A Message from our Faith Formation Director Jilinda Dygert
Hey faithful families! The Liturgical new year is just around the corner. Have you made some faith resolutions yet? If so, and one of them sounds something like, "I will nourish and strengthen my family's faith, using a simple method, every Sunday," then we have the tool for you! "Celebrating Sunday for Catholic Families" is a booklet that provides a simple and approachable way for families to integrate what they hear at Sunday Mass into their daily lives. As you drive to and from Mass on Sunday, this resource will guide your family through a short reflection on the Gospel. Then, there is a simple activity your family can do together that will help you go in peace to love and serve our Lord, just as He asks us to do. Are you interested in obtaining this $3 tool? It is truly priceless . . .
To reserve your copy, email Jilinda Dygert at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Become an RCIA Sponsor! You’ll be glad you did!
We are looking for men and women who are interested in learning more about their faith by sponsoring an RCIA or RCIC candidate. These Candidates are seeking to become members of the Catholic Church, and will take weekly classes starting in September, ending with a joyous celebration on Easter. Sponsors provide one-on-one companionship by attending classes each week with the Candidate, and meeting at other times as desired. Sponsors do not need to teach - only accompany the Candidate on this journey of a lifetime. If you are interested in this important and rewarding role, please contact Teresa Crichton at email@example.com.

Pray for persecuted Christians
Did you know that one in 12 Christians throughout the world suffers persecution? While genocide at the hands of the Islamic State and others in the Middle East has been particularly egregious, the slavery, imprisonment, torture, rape, expulsion and murder of the followers of Christ is epidemic around the globe. It is estimated that 215 million Christians experience high levels of persecution worldwide (2018 Open Doors World Watch List). Please join us here at the parish praying for our suffering brothers and sisters in faith. You can pick up a beautiful prayer card (with the olive wood cross on the front) as a reminder at the Welcome Center at the north entrance. "Remember the prisoners as if chained with them - those who are mistreated - since you are yourselves are in the body also." Hebrews13: 3
Are you interested in becoming Catholic?
Are you discerning about being baptized or being initiated into the Catholic Church? Are you an adult who wants to complete their sacraments? If so, the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is the perfect place to not only grow in your relationship with God, but also learn more about the Catholic faith. If you are interested and ready to answer your call to discern the next step in your faith journey or just have questions about this process, please contact Teresa Crichton. Formal classes begin in September.

Message From Monument Police Department
In the last several months the Monument area has experienced a sharp increase in trespasses into vehicles, several residential burglaries, and four motor vehicle thefts. In almost all of these cases the vehicles were left unlocked in the driveway or street, or in a garage with the garage door open.
One simple way to curb these crimes of opportunity is if everyone were to take very simple security precautions. First, always lock your vehicle. If you leave your car outside make sure that nothing of value is left in it (to include garage door remote control) and that no personal items can be seen simply by looking in the car. Make sure to always close your garage door at night and lock the passage door that leads from the garage into your residence. Finally, make sure that all windows and doors to your house are secured.
These very simple precautions can help prevent you from becoming a victim. If we remove the opportunity we hope to eventually remove the attempts.
