The St. Paul Community welcomes our new Director of Youth Ministry!
Hello, St. Paul community—my name is Miriam Pritschet, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining you as your new youth minister! I’m from Minnesota originally, where I grew up swimming, biking, hunting, fishing, ice skating….And of course fighting hard to avoid frostbite in the winters and mosquitos in the summer! I love music and singing, and since my mom’s the music minister at my home parish, my siblings and I were enthusiastic (well, at least on our good days!) members of the liturgical choir from a young age. I studied at St. Michael’s College in Vermont, where I majored in Religious Studies and minored in Psychology and Spanish. I’ve spent the last half a year living in Mexico with an order of Sisters in the state of Veracruz, serving alongside them in their apostolates, and especially in their educational, vocational, and child-focused ministries. I’m honored and excited to have this opportunity to be with you here at St. Paul’s, and can’t wait to get to know you! Please don’t hesitate to come and say hello; I would love to introduce myself and to have the chance to learn a little bit about you! Please feel free to stop by the parish office, give me a call, shoot me an email, or simply wave me down after Mass…I’m looking forward to meeting you! God bless.
Below is a list of all the remaining Sunday night classes
The Bishop has officially published the confirmation schedule. Our Confirmation mass will be at St Paul’s on Saturday May 12th at 5:00PM.
It will be a day to celebrate! I would encourage all our 7th grade families to attend; it is helpful for students to see what they are preparing for.
Getting together with relatives and friends during the holiday season is a good time to seriously consider who will be confirmation sponsors.
Sponsors can be pivotal in helping a confirmation candidate grow in faith, both now and throughout life. Attached is a PDF form that you should read and then give to whomever you want to be your sponsor.
The Steubenville of the Rockies Catholic Youth Conference is taking place at the Convention Center of Crowne Plaza DIA in Denver this summer, June 22nd-24th. Cost is $260 per person, which covers registration, transportation, lodging, and four meals. It’s for high school students, and St. Paul's would be going with Divine Redeemer parish. Openings are limited, and on a first come, first serve basis—so if you're interested, please contact Miriam Pritschet (Mpritschet@stpaulcos.org) ASAP. Permission forms are linked below:
We’ll have the opportunity to participate in two diocesan-organized outings this summer:
-Elitch Gardens Trip (June 6)
-Waterworld Trip (July 31)
As many of you know, these are one-day trips, and just down-right for fun! J If your kids are interested in attending (or if you might be willing to participate as a volunteer or chaperone!!), I would really appreciate a quick email, so that I’ll be able to get an idea on numbers and begin planning transportation and other details. Specific information on prices and times is still not available, but I’ll keep you updated and send along the actual registration forms and permission slips as soon as it is!
Unfortunately, it looks like we will not able to participate in the Mission Possible program this summer, but I’m looking to organize a couple of in-house service opportunities throughout the summer, and hopefully we’ll be able to take part in the event next year. I will send more emails to keep you informed as things progress, and will keep you posted as well about other summer activities and opportunities as they develop!
Thank you so much for taking the time to go through this information, and for your understanding and consideration. I hope you can make it!
I continue to hold you all in prayer, and hope that you and your families are enjoying a very grace-filled and joyful Easter season. God bless!
