Our Lady of Lourdes
Lourdes is hiring! We now have job postings for a Financial Analyst, Childcare Coordinator and a Maintenance Technician.

The Childcare Coordinator oversees the childcare program and recruiting, training, and scheduling childcare providers for events.

If you or someone you know is interested in one of these positions, please send a cover letter and resume to email@example.com.
The Colorado Catholic Conference is asking the lay faithful to sign a petition to tell House and Senate leaders to uphold the Hyde and Weldon Amendments and similar pro-life policies. The Hyde Amendment prohibits taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortion in most cases. The Weldon Amendment prevents any federal programs, agencies, and state and local governments from discriminating against health care practitioners and institutions that do not provide abortion services. As written in a letter recently released by the Catholic bishops in Colorado which urged Congressional representatives to support pro-life policies: “The House Appropriations Labor and Health and Human Services subcommittee recently passed a spending bill that strips protections for pre-born children, healthcare providers, and American taxpayers by excluding pro-life provisions, including the Hyde and Weldon amendments…. Congress’ recent actions endanger the lives of pre-born children and infringe on the rights of millions of Americans who do not wish to participate in the moral evil of abortion.” Learn more about these efforts—and how to contact your representatives—by visiting the Colorado Catholic Conference website.
The next Gathering at the Grotto will take place on Thursday, August 12, starting at 6:30 PM. Scott and Annie Powell of Camp Wojtyla will be continuing the conversation on marriage and family life. Food and drinks will be provided. We’ll see you there! (Bring your ID if you would like to enjoy an adult beverage.)
Candlelight Mass has resumed monthly! The next one will take place by the grotto on Thursday, August 19, with confession at 6 PM, and Mass to follow at 7 PM. After Mass, join us for a social hour by the grotto, with snacks and beverages provided (Don’t forget your ID).
Coffee Talk is now happening monthly! Join us for the next one on August 19th. Coffee Talk is a monthly effort, following the 8 AM Mass, to give parishioners a chance to ask Father Brian anything in a casual setting over coffee. All questions welcome! From building projects, to theology, and beyond!
