Walking with Moms in Need

In January, our parish held a “Gabriel Sunday” at which we introduced Walking with Moms in Need, a process in which Catholic communities respond to the needs of pregnant and parenting women. The Gabriel Project is one of the ways our diocese does this.

Thirteen women in our parish have been trained to offer spiritual and emotional support to moms in need. These volunteers, called “Angels” (after the Angel Gabriel), were commissioned on June 4. They are ready to assist women in our parish or in the community by walking with them during their pregnancy. For information, contact Valerie Haas at 303.956.5476. If you are a mom in need, or you know one, give us a call at 720.819.6735, or visit

We are assembling this collection of online resources in honor of our late Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI. We hope you find the information educational as well as inspirational. Check back to see any new additions.
