Important Safe Environment News
Changes are coming to our Safe Environment training for volunteers. Our diocese has selected a new platform called Virtus.

Volunteers need to acknowledge reading the bulletins. More details are coming soon.
If you received an email from Julie Dickinson regarding completing 2019-2020 Safe Environment Update Training ("Social Media and Computer Security"), please disregard the email as that training is no longer required.

54-Day Novena for Our Nation
Join us in prayer as we battle for the soul of our nation and the Catholic Church. The novena begins on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Saturday, August 15) and will be completed on the Feast of the Holy Rosary (Wednesday, October 7). This is a powerful nationwide campaign of spiritual warfare to pray for America's conversion prior to the November election. A multitude of miracles (private and public) have been witnessed since this "67,000 strong" United States Grace Force began praying together in 2016. To learn more, click here.

Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest
This contest encourages today’s youth to be more connected to their community and their faith.

The essay should be 500-750 words discuss how trusting in God during a difficult time has helped you or someone you know find the strength and hope to endure it. Consider especially those times when it was a challenge to understand why something was happening. Consider also sharing any lessons about faith and hope you or someone you know may have learned from this experience.
“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy” (1 Peter 1:8). Entrants will be judged on grammar, style, and how clearly they present the theme in a way that showcases creativity, imagination and overall development of the topic. Submit essays by December 31, 2020, to email@example.com. If you have any questions, contact Clark Musser at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Baby Shoe Collection
As part of the ongoing DUE DATE TOO LATE campaign for Initiative 120 (that will appear on the November ballot) the Diocesan Respect Life Apostolate is collecting baby shoes in each parish that will be taken to the Colorado State Capital in a press conference before the November election. Shoes will be collected from July 1 to September 1. The collection of baby shoes will give voters a powerful visual reminder of the innocent babies lost to late-term abortion in Colorado since 2013. After the election, the shoes will be donated to pregnancy help centers across the state. Look for the Baby Shoe Box in the gathering area (near the welcome center) where you can drop off a pair of new or gently-used baby shoes. For more information, contact stephanierkemp@gmaiI.com.

Returning God's Gifts 2020
The Returning God's Gifts (RGG) Annual Appeal is a diocesan-wide effort to help provide the funding necessary for the important ministries and programs the appeal supports: Forming Catholic Leaders, Faith Formation, Catholic Charities and parish projects. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own missions to teach, evangelize and serve. The appeal encourages participation from every Catholic household to uphold this mission of Jesus Christ in each parish for our local Church and allows us, as one faith community, to fulfill God’s call to discipleship by sharing the gospel message in word and deed, serving each other with mercy and love. The goal for St. Peter is $168,035. Click here to make a donation.
