Upcoming Divine Redeemer Events
Praying with the Saints
JOIN US EVERY 3RD TUESDAY OF THE MONTH AT 6:30PM
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.

Kickin’ It Up For Catholic Education
Friday, September 3rd marked the start of Divine Redeemer Catholic School’s Annual Benefit Fundraiser! This is our one major fundraiser of the year. The annual raffle will be held during the Gala Benefit on November 5, 2021, at the Elks Lodge in Colorado Springs. This year our theme is Kickin’ It Up For Catholic Education.
The cost to educate a child per year is conservatively $7,000.00, and as you can imagine, the cost for a high quality education, like that at DR, is even higher. Our one major school fundraiser-the annual raffle sales and Benefit-assists in providing items and an environment that allows us to continue the important work that we do at Divine Redeemer.
On Friday (9/3), each student came home with 30 raffle tickets and a detailed letter explaining the raffle. Each student is asked to sell the 30 raffle tickets, at $10 per ticket. Parent and student support of the raffle is part of the annual enrollment agreement- it is vitally important that each and every student participates. Last year, students sold over 6,000 tickets and we generated $60,000 net profit from the raffle alone! Past proceeds from the raffle and Benefit have funded school upgrades, technology, curriculum, textbooks, and more! Each ticket purchased is worth an opportunity at winning $5000. All monies raised from both the gala and raffle tickets go to support our parish and school.
Dinner tickets for our annual gala are on sale now. Tickets are $45 each or $450 for a reserved table of 8. They can be purchased at the scrip table.

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.
