In May, tragedy struck the Lizardo home when an el…
We Are Catholic.
Because we are Catholic, we have a responsibility to be Christ-like to others. Throughout the Gospel, God calls us to serve His people, and we take our calling seriously. “For I was hungry and you gave me food.

We Are Your Charity.
Here in Colorado, there are approximately 737,656 Cath…
