Fr. David Allen
With the recent death of Fr. John Grabrian, pastor of Christ on the Mountain parish, the Archdiocese of Denver has appointed Fr. David Allen to become the parish administrator there.
Consequently, Fr. David Allen will not be coming to Spirit of Christ.
We wish Fr. David Allen well in his new assignment.
From the Archdiocese: Restored Order for
the Sacraments of Initiation
As you may have heard, Archbishop Aquila is restoring the sacraments of initiation to their original order in the Archdiocese of Denver. In he coming years, the sacrament of Confirmation will ordinarily be received in third grade during the same liturgy as First Holy Communion. While we know – indeed, we hope – that these changes will raise questions for many, we have great confidence that the answers to those questions will help to deepen and enrich your own experience of the sacraments.
The archbisiop wants every Catholic in the archdiocese to understand the pastoral reasons for this decision. Everyone is invided to visit the webpage archden.org/saints, where you will find:
- the archbishop's pastoral letter, "Saints Among Us," in Spanish and English,
- answers to frequently asked questions regarding the upcoming changes,
- an invitation to participate in a live Q&A phone call with Archbishop Aquila,
- and a video explaining the letter.
Sign Up For the Archbishop's Live Teleforum
