The Light of Christ shines in the darkness, and no darkness can overcome it.
We recognize that the Covid-19 virus is causing anxiety for many people, and its risk is real. However, we also recognize that our community needs each other during this uncertain and stressful time. Together, with our hearts united in prayer, we are strong.
As an act of love toward our Light of Christ family, we have decided to close the church indefinitely to protect one another and our loved ones. We will re-evaluate at that time how to move forward. There will be no Masses, no meetings, and no gatherings for Light of Christ. Please check your email regularly as we will be sharing information with you through the all-parish distribution list. If you know someone who isn’t on the list, have them call the church office and we will get them added.
Please follow your local public health recommendations, and the recommendations of your health insurance for what is best for you at that time.
Here are some other things to know related to church:
Go to the “Calendar” page on our website to view what’s coming up in the next few days and weeks at Light of Christ.
Mass will be at 5pm on Saturdays on our Facebook page using Facebook Live. When Mass is over, it will stay on our Facebook page as a video. Even if you are not on Facebook, you can select the Facebook logo on the right side of this webpage (it looks like a fancy blue F, and as it takes you to our Facebook page, you can select the “Not Join at This Time” option) and it will direct you to our Facebook page where you can scroll through and watch Mass. We suggest you try these things now to see how they work. Call the church office with questions. The number here is 303-772-3785. Leave a message if we don’t answer. We are checking the messages frequently.
We will also use the voice recorder to record the entire Mass each week and then post those after Mass in the Homilies section of this website, under the “Homilies” tab.
Every morning at 10am, Fr. Teri and Annie will be reading from the Book of Psalms. We will read three psalms each day. Please join us for this time to build community together as we experience God’s love through sacred Scripture. We will try to upload these to the website everyday so that if you are not on Facebook, you can view them under the new heading “Facebook Live Events” on our website.
Additionally, every Tuesday evening at 6pm, Fr. Teri will hold Tuesday Tales on Facebook live. This event, which began last summer, includes reading from a children’s book and offering a prayer to the community. Please join us for this sweet virtual gathering at 6pm on Tuesday nights on the Light of Christ Facebook page. We will also upload these to the Light of Christ website each week.
Fr. Teri continues to be available for care. You may call or text her directly on her cell phone. If you don’t have her cell phone number, you can call the church office and get it from there.
We are Light of Christ. Let us live boldly together in our separate corners of the world as that Light, loving and serving God as we love and serve in God’s world. Amen.
We invite you to explore our website, learn about our community and how we celebrate God’s word, and pray together. We would love to have you join us on Saturday afternoon when we decide to gather again weekly for our Eucharistic Celebration.
