Initium (Latin for ‘starting point’) meets every two weeks from 6:00pm – 7:30pm in the Parish Life Center.  We try to foster an encounter with Jesus Christ that forms a foundation and identity for the future as well as build friendships through fun and small group time.  We have four different themes.  Fun nights are primarily to goof off and build community.  Faith nights are times to dive into serious subjects.  Prayer nights focus on actual prayer time.  Breakout nights focus on the Theology of the Body and have separate guy/girl talks and small groups.

Denver Catholic Catechetical  School

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC), published in 1994, was the first universal Catechism intended for the whole Catholic Church in over 400 years! Pope John Paul II said, “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.” You can call 303-715-3195 or visit catecheticalschool.org to view student testimonials.

That Man is You!

TMIY is an interactive, multimedia men’s program focused upon the development of authentic male leadership. The program content harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive. Over the course of three years, That Man is You! successively considers men in their relationship to God, to their spouse and to their children. It is particularly indebted to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and Pope John Paul II. For more info, call John Vonau at the Parish Office.
