COVID-19 Resource Center
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Is Lourdes open during the safer-at-home order?
The short answer is, not exactly. However, we are pleased to announce that the Archdiocese of Denver has been given the green light to open Mass at 75-person capacity, with social distancing guidelines in place, beginning Sunday, June 7. Sunday Mass will be offered with a scheduled sign-up for 10 AM, Noon, and 6 PM. Daily Mass will also be offered Tuesday—Friday at 8 AM. We will continue to broadcast 10 AM Mass on Sundays, via livestream. Safety is of utmost concern, therefore, those at risk of COVID-19 should remain at home. Those who are sick should also remain at home. We will also ask attendees to wear a mask, bring sanitizer, and maintain a safe distance away from fellow worshipers. Stay tuned for more videos, next week, and we will keep you filled in as we know more!
Connections During COVID-19
Father Brian and Father Mike continue to urge the faithful to pray for all those whose lives have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. Let us pray for all who are sick, all the unemployed or furloughed, and those on the front line, whether they be in hospitals, hospitality, grocery stores, or food service industries. Let us also keep in mind all those in science and healthcare who are working tirelessly to combat this disease.

What if I need food, meds, or have a sacramental emergency?
Sacramental Emergency/Anointing of the Sick/Indulgence Info:
- In cases of sacramental emergencies, only, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 303.995.7747.
- **PLEASE NOTE** Certain hospitals have begun to deny Religious access to patients as a precautionary measure. In case this happens to you or a loved one, the Archbishop has approved this special indulgence for those who are suffering, but in good standing with God. See paragraph #7 to understand ways to obtain that good standing. You can recite the prayers mentioned on the patient’s behalf.
Food Bank Information & Grocery Provisions:
- Because our parish office is closed during this time, we have been forced to close our food bank during the shelter-in-place period. Please contact these operational food banks in the interim.
- Need groceries or medication? Our collective staff will be reaching out to each of our parishioners to survey your needs. Please contact email@example.com, and provide your name, phone number, and permission for a volunteer to contact you if your needs are pressing.
How can I help?
We are here to support those in our community in this challenging time. Our Lady of Lourdes still needs your support, especially with the suspension of public Mass.
Please consider a gift to support the church:
Mass Collection | School Contribution
- Please consider a prayerful donation to the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal, which supports forty archdiocesan-wide ministries including Catholic Charities, the Office of Catholic Schools, and Centro San Juan Diego. They depend heavily on our yearly contributions to keep these ministries running. Thank you for your generosity!
