are we touched by what is holy?

The Hospitality Ministry Invites You to Stay
If you can stay afterwards, you are invited to bring a sack lunch and drink to enjoy after Mass. It should be a beautiful day. ( But in case of inclement weather, an email will go out the night before to advise everyone.)
 
Protocol
Masks are mandatory and social distancing observed. We will enjoy live music with Bill Smith. Though congressional singing is restricted, we all can hum with enthusiasm! The grass will be marked with a 10 foot square for each family/individual. Bathrooms are available.
 
So please join us! Bring a mask, a chair (chairs will be provided for those who cannot carry one in) and a sack lunch if you wish for after Mass.

This will be our first outdoor service - we're still working with our 301 Faith Partners on scheduling our services. We cannot wait to see & worship with you in person!

Opportunities in Service
A National Call for Moral Revival - There are systemic factors that contribute to homelessness - such as the lie of housing scarcity combined with state and local policies impacting homelessness. This creates an environment of persistent fear for those who are unhoused or on the brink of becoming homeless.

When we begin to understand the consequences of being unhoused, homelessness becomes not only a public health problem or economic problem but a human tragedy, particularly in the richest country on earth.

Please join us on Saturday, May 8, 2:00 – 4:00 pm via Zoom

We will look at homelessness in NoCo and discussing mis-conceptions and realities gained through interviews with unhoused folks in Fort Collins.

What are some ways we can lift up and enable the voices of the unhoused?
How might we need to change our perspective on terrorism (manipulating fear)
and how do we call it what it is?

We want to hear from you. Please join us on zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85089384113?pwd=emFwWG9HdGxOUVZZMnJNVWxxNDNVUT09
