An Act of Spiritual Communion:
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Important Updates Concerning Operations of the Parish
Fr. Scott Bailey
Updated June 30th
Limited public Masses – Due to attendance restrictions at this time, households must sign-up to attend Mass. The link to the sign-up form is on this website’s homepage. For those who cannot attend in person, video of the weekend Mass continues to be available on the parish website beginning at 4:00pm on Saturdays.
Daily Masses have Resumed – Daily mass is back! No need to sign up. Just show up and wear your mask. Daily mass is offered Mon-Fri at 6:30 AM, 8:00 AM, and 12:15 PM. Saturday daily mass is offered at 8:30 AM.
What should we do on Sundays, when we cannot attend Mass? Make the day holy. Use it well by spending some time in prayer, especially with Scripture. You can set aside some quiet time to read and reflect on the readings from Mass ( Daily Readings). I encourage you to make a prayer of spiritual communion, since you will be unable to receive the Lord in the Eucharist. The Lord can fill your heart in a powerful way when you invite him in with faith! There is a simple prayer for spiritual communion HERE. The archdiocese website also has links so that you can watch Mass online and utilize Magnificat online for free.
Penance & Anointing of the Sick – Confessions are available in the CHURCH at our normally scheduled times. Masks must be worn by all who come to confession. Please follow the signs in the church when you come to confession. Our priests continue to offer the anointing of the sick for those who are in danger of death.
Church and Adoration chapel- You are welcome to pray before the Tabernacle in the chapel or in the church. The church is opened daily at 8:00am. For your safety, we sanitize the church daily.
The parish office will be open on Mon., Wed., Fri. ONLY – If it is necessary for you to meet with an employee in person on a different day of the week, you must schedule an appointment. You can find contact information for our employees on our staff page under the “about” tab.
Flocknote– Flocknote is the best way to stay updated about what is happening at Risen Christ. Sign up for Flocknote HERE.
Social media – You can connect with us and follow us on Facebook HERE and now on Instagram HERE. We regularly post things that are inspirational and informational, which you can share with your friends.
Resources from the Diocese – The Archdiocese of Denver has created a webpage dedicated to Coronavirus prevention and resources. That can be found HERE. For information about the reopening of public Masses, go here – https://denvercatholic.org/
Even amidst the pandemic, we have a lot going on at the parish! Click a section to find out more about the programs keeping parishioners involved during our time apart!
Starting June 16, children ages 5 – 9 are invited to join us for a story and craft each Tuesday during the summer. Drop off your (masked) child for a socially distant hour of learning about the love of Jesus and doing a fun craft. We’ll end right at 10 a.m., so please be prompt when picking up your child! Drop-offs and pick-ups will be outside of the east entrance to the Emmaus Center, near the statue of Mary in the rose garden. Sign up here.
Into the Breach Men’s Group
“Into the Breach” is a new men’s group that will be meeting by Zoom on Friday mornings beginning June 12th. The group will meet from 6:30 to 7:30 am so that participants can start the day with faith and fellowship and still get or connect to work at an early hour.
DEEPENING MY INTERIOR LIFE
TO FOLLOW CHRIST WHEREVER HE LEADS
Thursdays beginning September 17, 7:00 – 8:30pm
Emmaus Center (Parish Hall)
Fr. Chris Hellstrom will teach a 24-week school of prayer focused on deepening spiritual formation for those who feel an active call from Christ to follow him more closely and serve him in their daily life circumstances. The classes are adapted from the spiritual formation lectures offered to seminarians at St. John Vianney Seminary during their Spirituality Year.
The classes are intended for individuals who have undergone some introductory prayer formation (e.g. Peter Stur’s God Within class). Other preparatory experience can be Biblical School classes, retreats, parish programs with a prayer component, etc.
Tuition is $20 per class (24 classes + 3 prayer nights). Couples enjoy 50% discount on second participant. Aside from class tuition, In Ipso ministry is funded by donations. Scholarships are available to ensure that finances are not a barrier for those who desire to grow in relationship with the Lord.
For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 720-2034499.
There are so many people is need of help and support during these uncertain times. Please consider donating items as you are able. We currently have two collections going: Hunger Knows No Season and our Annual School Supply Drive. Check out the flyers below for more information and items needed!
