Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a program in our parish that equips lay people to provide distinctively Christian one-to-one care to those who are experiencing all kinds of needs and circumstances. We walk with those who are grieving, those who suffer loneliness, those divorcing, and those in spiritual crises. It is a confidential ministry where those receiving care can be sure that their identity and what goes on will remain private. Stephen Ministers are committed Christian people who express God’s care through their lives to others; receive 50 hours of initial training in important caring ministry skills; visit another person regularly and offer Christian support and care; participate in support and supervision under the guidance of trained Stephen Leaders; are committed to preserving the confidential nature of the relationship; serve for at least 2 years and receive continuing education and skill building throughout their years of service.

The Deaf in our Parish Life

We hear with our eyes; we believe in our hearts; we speak with our hands about The Word of Life - Jesus Christ. It is critical that everyone have an opportunity to experience Mass in a language they understand. The Deaf Community is no exception. The only interpreted Mass in the city is held at St. Mary’s Cathedral at the 8:45 am Sunday Mass every week. This ministry is a diocesan program and the only source of funding is from Catholic Charities of Colorado Springs.

The Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus are one of the most giving and zealous of the faith organizations in the Catholic Church all over the world. Fr. Quezada, Pastor at St. Mary Cathedral, invited the Knights to establish a Council at St. Mary Cathedral in 2008. Since then, they have already made their kind presence known. For more information, please call.
