Dear Friends in
Our prayers today extend to all
those affected by the fires throughout Colorado, and those of our Catholic
communities who have been touched by this tragedy. We have already
received several reports of parishioners of St. Gabriel who have lost their
homes and are in need of our spiritual care. It is almost certain that
we will continue to hear of additional reports as the story unfolds.
So I invite all of you to please
pray for our parish communities, the parishes of St. Gabriel, St. Peter and
Our Lady of the Pines. If you have been affected, or know of someone
who has, please let us know by calling the parish office at 719-528-8407.
We may be able to assist you with your physical needs or direct you to
assistance, and clergy will be available to assist you spiritually.
You may also join us for our daily celebration of Mass at 12:15pm as we offer
up our intentions for the fire victims.
As always, pray for the brave men
and women of the fire and police departments who are risking their lives to
battle the fire.
May God’s blessing be with
