Prayer Ministries

We are pleased to offer these community and ministry opportunities for prayer, in addition to those found on our Prayer & Worship page.

  • Contemplative Prayer

    This group gathers to pray, support, and learn the contemplative prayer practices: Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina as taught by Fr. Thomas Keating and Contemplative Outreach. They meet weekly on Tuesday at 7pm in the Chapel to encourage growth in relationship with God through silent prayer by consenting to the presence and action of God within each of us; and praying Holy Scripture in the Lectio Divina method. Group sharing nurtures an open, supportive, and inclusive environment. All who pray or meditate in silence are welcome no matter their method of contemplative prayer. For more information contact Leslee Terpay at 720-315-8120.   

  • Prayer Chain Ministry

    Would you like us to pray for you? Let us know here. 

    Are you looking for a way to pray more for others and their intentions? Join our Prayer Chain Ministry. Intercessory prayers are described in Scripture as building bridges between God and those we are praying for. As Catholics, we often pray to the saints to pray on our behalf, too. People often request prayers for family members and friends in need of comfort and healing. Often, requests are prayers of thanksgiving. Through our prayer ministry, you can offer your personal prayers and good works for these special intentions. If you believe in the power of prayer and would like to help others, contact Megan Nagel at 303-799-1036.

  • Prayer Shawls

    This ministry brings hope, comfort and solace to a needy recipient in the form of a tangible prayer – a handmade shawl. Each Tuesday afternoon, crafters knit/crochet shawls, devote a prayer to the future recipient and enjoy each other’s company. The blessed prayer shawl will physically wrap a recipient, reminding him/her of God’s loving and healing embrace. Yarn, patterns and tools are provided or bring your own. Come as often as you want; you are most welcome! For more information, to join the group, or to find out how to receive a prayer shawl, contact Sue Giudici at 303-791-6864.

  • Living Rosary

    The Living Rosary is a continuous rosary that invites volunteers to daily pray one decade of the rosary at your convenience. You will be assigned a specific mystery and intention for each month. St. Pope John Paul II said, “The Rosary is a prayer both so humble and simple and theologically rich in Biblical content. I beg you to pray it." For more information, contact Debbie Maynard at 303-888-8617.

  • Seven Sisters Apostolate

    The Seven Sisters Apostolate is a group of seven women (plus substitutes) who offer one hour of prayer, one day per week, so that our pastor has someone praying for him for an hour every day. Guides for how to do a holy hour are available. We would love to extend our prayers to our deacons as well as we grow! For more information contact Debbie Maynard at 303-888-8617.

  • Spiritual Direction

    If you have been experiencing a growing desire to know God more personally and to love Him more deeply, Spiritual Direction might be for you! Spiritual Direction is an opportunity to go deeper in your prayer, to help you discern what God is asking of you at this point in your life. Meeting regularly with your spiritual director will help you become aware of and respond to the presence of God in your prayer and in your daily life experiences.

    Everyone who is seriously committed to his or her spiritual journey is encouraged to take advantage of this ministry; there is no cost to participate. Click here to learn more, or contact Deacon Tom Sandusky to take the next step.

Our Parish Council and Pastor will review requests on a first come, first served basis, and the approval process usually takes about one month, depending on meeting dates and the team's availability.
