From the Pastor August 12th, 2018

Dear Friends:

I could summarize my message this week with two words: THANK YOU.

But I would like to say a few more words in addressing the THANK YOU to people who need to be recognized for their outstanding contribution to the success of this year’s bazaar:

To the booth managers: THANK YOU. Your organizing your particular booth and your management of your “crew” was outstanding and we all appreciate your efforts very much. Because of you the visitors to our bazaar had a great time!

To our sponsors: THANK YOU. Your generous support of this year’s bazaar is a testimony to your dedication to Holy Family.

To our set up and take down crew: THANK YOU. Your muscle, know-how and ability to see the task through to completion are truly gifts to all of us. I am so appreciative of the hard work you did!

To our donors of cakes, pies, pop and other items: THANK YOU. Your help in these booths, activities, and games made the experience enjoyable for so many!

To those who bought and sold raffle tickets for both raffles: THANK YOU. Once again, we sold all of the tickets for the large cash raffle!!!!! THANK YOU! We did very well on the second raffle as well.

To our advertisers and yard sign promoters: THANK YOU. You let everyone know about the bazaar and, so gave them an invitation to attend. We had good crowds because of you!

To our money counters: THANK YOU. Your work was both enjoyable (you got to see how well we did) and necessary. Accuracy and accountability are certainly appreciated in this effort.

To the behind-the-scenes folks: THANK YOU. Many of these are staff members who did “extra” work for several weeks for the success of the bazaar.


The 2018 Holy Family bazaar was a success. Thank you to all of the members of our parish who supported this event in whatever way you were able.

With a deeply grateful heart to the entire community of Holy Family,
Father Marty

Feast of the Assumption - Wednesday, August 15th

On November 1, 1950, Pope Pius XII defined the Assumption of Mary to be a dogma of faith: “We pronounce, declare and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma that the immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul to heavenly
glory.” The pope proclaimed this dogma only after a broad consultation of bishops, theologians and laity. There were few dissenting voices. What the pope solemnly declared was already a common belief in the Catholic Church. This is a Holy Day of obligation.

News and Events

Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal
No gift to the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal is insignificant. Your contribution - whether it’s $50, $100, or $500 - when combined with the charity of your fellow parishioners will translate into significant funds. The only thing asked is that you donate to the best of your ability.

During the summer months some adorers for the Adoration Chapel will be on vacation. We invite anyone who was waiting for good weather to visit the chapel and spend an hour in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Send a card to a family member or friend telling them that your “gift” to them was an hour of prayer. What better gift could you give? Just one hour a week. Call the Parish Office to let us know.

The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado is here to help you understand the advantages of creating a Will – and how you can give it a way to do greater good through a bequest to the Foundation for the benefit of Holy Family Parish Fund. To learn more, contact Jean Finegan at the Catholic Foundation at 303.867.0613.

There is a parishioner who lives near 104th in Thornton who wishes to attend the 4 pm Saturday evening Mass. If you are able to help with a ride, even once in a while, please call the Parish Office.
