XX Our Lady of Lourdes Classes  XX


Adult Education Class will be studying the Catechism of the Catholic Church on each 2nd and 4th Monday of the month.  This is an excellent way to grow in your faith during this Year of Faith.  Catechisms are available.


Our Lady of Lourdes Bible Study will meet Tuesday nights at the church starting at 6:00 PM.  We will be studying the book of Exodus.  Study Guides are available for purchase for $10.00. The Year of Faith started in October 2012.  This would be an excellent way to learn more about your Catholic Faith. 


Our Lady of Lourdes: “Rediscover Catholicism - A Spiritual Guide to Living with Passion and Purpose” will meet every other Monday night at 6:30 PM.  At a time when many Catholics are disillusioned, questioning their faith, and filled with doubts about the relevance of Catholicism in the modern world, the voice of one young man cries out with a clarity and inspiration to the world's largest faith community. Beginning with our common yearning for happiness, Rediscover Catholicism, takes us on an adventure of life-changing proportions by addressing some of the most important questions we face today both as individuals and as a Church.

A Prayer for Catechists

O God, our Heavenly Father, you have given us the gift of these catechists to be heralds of the Gospel to our parish family.

We lift them up to you in thanksgiving and intercede for them concerning their hopes and needs. May we be attentive to the presence of your Word in them, a Word that lifts up and affirms, calls forth and challenges, is compassionate and consoles. We pray that our parish family will always be blessed with those who have responded to the call to share in Christ’s prophetic mission as catechists. May we too be open to the universal call to service that Christ addresses to all of his disciples, contributing our gifts to the communion of faith, the Church. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen

Our Lady of Lourdes 100th Anniversary Committee is looking for any copies of minutes, council proceedings, pictures or memorabilia to help with the planning for this BIG celebration.  We will scan your pictures and give them back to you.


Come spend some quiet time with the Lord this Fall.

Holy Family invites you to join them for First Saturday Mass at 8:00 AM on the first Saturday of each month.  All day Adoration will continue until 4:00 PM.  You are invited to come and spend some quiet time with the Lord in prayer and adoration.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS: Gentle God, You call us by name and lead us to life. Through baptism you commission us to proclaim the Good News. Bless and strengthen all men and women, lay and ordained, who serve in the Church.  Guide and give wisdom to those discerning their vocation.  Enrich our Church with dedicated married and single people, with priests, religious and deacons.  Filled with joy and your Holy Spirit may we follow Jesus, our Good Shepherd, now and always. Amen.

ORACIÓN POR LAS VOCACIONES: Oh Dios de bondad, nos llamas por nuestro nombre y nos das vida. Por el bautismo nos envías a proclamar la Buena Nueva. Bendice y fortalece a todos los hombres y mujeres, laicos y ordenados, quienes sirven en la Iglesia. Guía y da sabiduría a los que tratan de discernir su vocación. Enriquece nuestra Iglesia con personas dedicadas al matrimonio y a la vida célibe, con sacerdotes, religiosos y diáconos. Que llenos de alegría y de tu Espíritu Santo podamos seguir a Jesús, nuestro Buen Pastor, ahora y siempre. Amén.

All Parish Prayer Line

Holy Family and Our Lady of Lourdes are beginning an all-parish prayer line.  Through a chain of phone calls, one family will contact the next family until everyone has been notified.  Each family will then pray for the special need sometime before the end of the day.  What will the need be?  It could be sickness, car accident, death bed, and etc.  These are all serous needs.  What do we pray?  A Rosary, if possible, is the first request because of the seriousness.  You may include this intention in your family  Rosary that night.  To be a part of this wonderful chain, please sign up in the back of your church.  If you have any questions, please contact for Holy Family, Mary Jane Vodicka at 303-732-9355, Sacred Heart – Jeanne Buchholz at 303-849-5339 or for Our Lady of Lourdes, Inez Baltazar at 970-483-6535.

Eastern Plains Catholic Parish Outreach (EPCPO), organized in 2002 to assist stranded travelers has, over the years, helped many stranded families with car repairs, fuel, food lodging and bus tickets home. Due to the generosity of parishioners from Holy Family, Sacred Heart and Our Lady of Lourdes, EPCPO was able to expand its outreach efforts to include assisting people in need in other areas within our own communities.  For example, EPCPO has helped local families with propane, electric bills, rent, and on a limited basis, prescription medications through Keene Clinic and Dales Pharmacy in Ft. Lupton.  For information contact Tom & Sharon Croghan 303-732-1003 or Bob & Karol Kopetzky 970-542-3507 work 970-483-7765 home
