Next Sunday, the fourth Sunday of September, is a special day set aside to honor priesthood in the United States. It is a day to reflect upon and affirm the role of the priest as central to the life of the Church. This event offers an opportunity for all parishioners to express our appreciation and support to our priests for their service to the Church, and especially our parish. Seek your own way to express your individual recognition and appreciation at next weekend’s mass. This nationwide event is coordinated and sponsored by Serra International, an organization of lay men and women whose mission is to foster and affirm vocations to the ministerial priesthood and vowed religious life in the United States.

St. Rita’s Church follows the Archdiocese of Denver restored order of sacraments. This two-year program starts with First Reconciliation. After a child receives that sacrament in the spring, then he or she can advance to the Confirmation and First Holy Communion class in the fall.
Note: Preschool Age classes are offered before the two-year program.
