PLEASE BRING your footcare items for the St. Francis Center to the parish hall. They will be collected in the alcove by Maundy Thursday, April 13th. Contact Anne Campbell if you have questions, at 303-880-1012 or ameelia2002@yahoo.com

INTINCTION is administered on the pulpit side of the Altar Rail, where the chalice is always administered by the ordained clergy. Please be sure to receive on this side if you receive by intinction. Intinction will be administered using the entire altar rail for the time being, at 8:00 a.m. only. This is due to there being only one priest to administer the sacrament at 8:00 a.m. 10:00 a.m. will remain as before.
