Inclement Weather Policy

Weekend Mass and daily Mass will always be celebrated regardless of weather conditions.  Should there ever be an exception to this, we will make every effort to have the cancellation noted on the local TV stations and send out a Flocknote.

This allows us to update parishioners with the most recent announcements for our parish and school. 

If the school closes, the parish office will also be closed.  All daytime and evening activities for both the parish and school will be cancelled.

If you should choose to attend Mass on an inclement weather day, please be advised that the walks may not be cleared.  Be sure to wear the appropriate footwear for adverse conditions. We highly to encourage you to consider your safety first.

Upcoming Divine Redeemer Events

Praying with the Saints

 


Only the Saints are in heaven! Just like a friend showing us love and support may we ask the Saints to teach us how to pray, teach us about the importance of Marian and Eucharistic devotion, but most important to teach us how to be Saints! 

We will begin a new event here at Divine Redeemer, for over two years I have been leading a Rosary once a week with a small group and during this time God has provided this parish many First-Class relics and has inspired me to create a new event called Praying with the Saints. Each month we will have a Saint teach us about their life, teach us how to pray by learning what they have taught about Marian devotion and Eucharistic Adoration and asking for their intercession for healing or special intentions. 

Everyone will have an opportunity to pray a Rosary together and spend some time asking the Saint for their prayers. All will be able to receive a personal Blessing with a First-Class relic of that Saint. During the last year I have witnessed miraculous healings through the Saints intercession as I encouraged them to ask the Saints.  

We will be having Praying with the Saints once a month usually on the Third Tuesday of the Month at 6:30pm. Bring your rosaries and a desire to learn from the Saints, we will have time after in the community center for fellowship.

Bereavement Ministry- Grief and the Holidays Support Group Session
Saturday, December 4, at 10 a.m. – 12 noon in the All Saints Center

“Since the holidays are for being with those we love the  most, how on earth can anyone be expected to cope with them when a love one has died?  Holidays only  magnify the loss.  The sadness feels sadder and the loneliness goes deeper.  The need for support may be the greatest during the holidays!” Please join us for a morning of prayer, sharing, and support.

Call the parish office  at (719) 234-0345 no later than December 1st to RSVP or for Questions.

Relic of St. Maximilian Kolbe


A rare First Class relic of St. Maximilian Kolbe for Divine Redeemer Catholic Church in Colorado Springs where the relic will be permanently displayed and venerated.

A couple of summers ago, Fr. Jason Keas was blessed to lead a pilgrimage to Poland to learn about the great saints of Poland like St. John Paul II, St. Faustina, and St. Maximilian Kolbe. St. Max was a Conventual Franciscan Friar who was greatly devoted to the Blessed Mother, founder of the Militia Immaculata, founder of the largest friary over 700 friars. St. Max died for another prisoner in Auschwitz making him a new category of a saint, a martyr of charity. Fr. Jason Keas was able to celebrate Mass at Niepokalanow (City of the Immaculate Mother of God) where St. Max would teach his over 700 friars and publish information about Mary. After that Mass in Poland, Fr. Jason was given a rare First Class relic of St. Maximilian Kolbe for Divine Redeemer Catholic Church in Colorado Springs where the relic will be permanently displayed and venerated.
