Outreach Ministries

We Spread His Word With a Servant’s Heart

Through outreach ministries, we witness to Christ and share his gospel with everyone we meet. We serve one another and especially the poor, believing that those who have less in life should have more in love -Jesus’ love and ours. We provide spiritual, educational, social justice, and charitable events and activities in the parish and community that deepen one’s friendship with Jesus and equip individuals to serve one another within their families and communities.

There are a number of ways we give beyond our own parish community, including:

HOSPITALITY CORNER — Join parish staff members to help run our new Hospitality Corner. Volunteers greet visitors, hand out parish information, take requests for information, help register parishioners for programs and events, etc. The desk will be open after all weekend Masses. Volunteers may sign up for a Mass once a month or as often as they like. Training provided. Contact André Escaleira, Jr. at 303-742-2342 or aescaleira@denvernotredame.org.

COFFEE AND DONUTS — Help serve refreshments on the first Sunday of every month following the 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. Masses. Volunteers are needed to procure supplies, set up, serve, and clean up. Contact Bill at 719-237-3432 or whrohlman@earthlink.net.

CHRIST IN THE CITY — Provide lunches to the homeless in Civic Center Park on Wednesdays as assigned. Volunteers are needed to make and/or serve simple sandwich lunches. Christ in the City is not currently receiving volunteers, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of Civic Center Park.

 SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY (SVDP)Seeks to meet the physical needs of the poor by truly putting the Gospel into action. Members gather twice a month for prayer and consultation regarding those they are helping. Members make personal visits two-by-two to those in need and aid in the requests for assistance. SVDP is a wonderful ministry for married couples and single persons alike. Contact Larry at 303-349-1116 or larryquinn@comcast.net. 

RESPECT LIFE AND SOCIAL JUSTICE MINISTRY — Strives to cultivate a vibrant culture of life by upholding the dignity of every human person. So as to recognize Christ in everyone’s face, we educate, support, and are in solidarity with those in our community facing life’s challenges. We currently meet every 2nd Tuesday at 10:00 am in the Ministry Center to plan material needs, drives, and events that benefit others. Contact Lauren at 720-785-4423 or notredamerespectlife@gmail.com.

COMMUNION TO THE SICK AND HOMEBOUND — Pray with and take Communion to those recovering from illness/surgery, the elderly, infirmed, or homebound. Ministers commit to serving on a particular day to a particular person. Training is provided. Contact Fr. John Therese at jtcreus@denvernotredame.org or 303-935-3900.

POWERBACK REHAB CENTER  AND LAKEVIEW MANOR LIVING CENTER — Bring Communion to and pray with the patients of the Powerback Rehab Center in Lakewood and the Lakeview Senior Living Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays, respectively.
