Serving Our community

Every day we are confronted with so much need. Need for food, need for financial support, need for comfort and friendship. How can you help serve those in need right here in our community?

  • Friends of Maggie

    Over 300,000 children annually in the United States are at risk of becoming victims of modern day slavery (human trafficking). With our proximity to I-25, Denver, and Convention Centers, children in Douglas County are extremely vulnerable. Pax Christi’s Friends of Maggie Ministry supports From Silenced to Saved, serving those who have fallen victim to human trafficking. We work together to provide backpacks for victims containing every-day essentials. Click here to make a monetary donation. For more information, contact Celeste Lafferty, or Melanie Brown.

  • The Gabriel Project

    The Gabriel Project® is a confidential and compassionate outreach to women who have an unplanned pregnancy. A trained "Gabriel Angel" supports the woman's choice for life through friendship, encouragement, and prayer throughout her pregnancy. In addition to providing emotional and spiritual support, the "Gabriel Angel" helps the expectant mom with various practical needs. There is no charge for our services and we do not discriminate because of race, color, national origin, age, marital status, or religious affiliation of our clients.

  • Helping Hands - Funeral Meals

    Our service to the Lord and our community is providing the funeral reception meal for the families of deceased parishioners. Immediately after the Funeral Mass at Pax Christi, family and friends are invited to the Christi Center for a reception meal. Volunteers contribute and deliver one dish (casserole, salad, dessert, etc.) the morning of the funeral. Food may be homemade or store-bought. Helping Hands Coordinators guide volunteers in the food category needed to ensure an assortment of food options. Volunteers are also needed to set-up, serve/replenish, and clean-up. The time commitment is minimal, but requests are often made on short notice. Contact Christy Felcyn at 720-419-0124 for more information or to volunteer.

  • Lunch Bunch

    The mission of the Lunch Bunch is to serve God by making bagged lunches for those who are being served by Volunteers of America Mission. The VOA Mission is an organization that identifies and serves the basic needs of the most vulnerable individuals and families within the community.  The lunches are prepared in your home and delivered to Pax Christi before Noon on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month. Families purchase enough food to make 12 bagged lunches that include a PBJ sandwich, a bag of chips, dessert and a piece of fruit (optional). A volunteer driver will then drive the lunches to the VOA Mission downtown to be served to those needing lunch. For more information contact Suzanne Ross at 303-257-6135.
