A Word from Father Ed…







Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


           This weekend we say good-bye to two staff members and welcome another.

          For more than twenty years Ken Sladovnik has served as a youth volunteer and the parish’s youth minister.  Studies all show that next to the presence of both parents in a home the single most important factor in raising a young person in the faith is the presence of a mentor—of someone whom a teenager or young adult can trust, in whom he/she can confide, and who complements the parents in teaching the young person the ways of life, the world, and especially of Jesus Christ.  Ken has been such a mentor to many—trusted, wise, and of great generosity in partnering with parents in guiding, teaching, and loving their children.  We owe Ken and his own family an unpayable debt of gratitude for his service, discipleship, and love, and wish them well.

          Tomas Fuerte has been the parish’s Director of Religious Education and Adult Faith Formation since 2011.  In his position, he has endeared himself to many families, children, and parishioners for his love of the Lord, fidelity to the church’s teachings, and organizational skills.  As director of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) he has been the conduit for many adults joining the church and becoming Catholic.  We are grateful to Tomas and his family for the many hours of devotion, work, and sacrifice he has put into his ministry and assure them of our prayers in their next venture in service to the gospel and the church.

          I am pleased to announce that beginning July 1 Everett Fritz will join our pastoral team as the director of family and youth ministry and small Christian communities.  Everett, his wife, and three children are parishioners at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish.  His background is in youth ministry but his growing interest is family based ministry.  Everett believes, as do I, that the greatest contributing factor for forming youth into life-long disciples is a family that actively witnesses together to the faith.  In 2016, he launched an apostolate, St. Andrew Missionaries (standrewmissionaries.org), which advocates a shift in youth ministry approach to small group discipleship within strong, Catholic families.  He is the author of Freedom: Battle Strategies for Conquering Temptation (published by Lighthouse Catholic Media and Ignatius Press).  You can read his blog at http://everettfritz.com.  You can read his full resume at denvernotredame.org.  We welcome Everett to Notre Dame and assure him of our prayers and partnership for the sake of our families, youth, and parishioners.

          I am still in the process of hiring a new liturgist/musician and director of evangelization/faith formation.  After extensive searching, I actually offered these positions to two persons, both of whom assured me they were desirous of being employed at Notre Dame.  Accepting the positions required each of them to move to Denver (both of whom assured me they wanted to do so).  But when I offered them the positions, they both got cold feet and turned me down.  I have reopened the search and am accepting applications anew through June.  Please join me in prayer that the Lord will bring to us the best persons for these important ministries and services.

                                                                                                               Stay cool!                                                                                                                  

                                                                                                                                                                   Father Ed
