KIOWA. The Respect Life Apostolate seeks to inform us how to understand, value, and become engaged in the myriad of the Church’s activities that support the God-given dignity of every person — which naturally leads to protecting the gift of every person’s life.  All human life is sacred, spanning life from the womb to the tomb (i.e., from the beginning of life at human conception until one’s natural death).

COLORADO SPRINGS. “You are the light of the world. A city seated on a mountain cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house. So let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

A Look Back: Disaster Response

Catholic Charities of Central Colorado: 50 Years of Hope 1968-2018
November 2, 2018  |  By ROCHELLE SCHLORTT
COLORADO SPRINGS. Over the years, Catholic Charities of Central Colorado has responded to disasters throughout its 10-county service area, going back to 2005 when the agency helped refugees from Hurricane Katrina by staffing the Red Cross Disaster Recovery Center with case managers. At the other end of the spectrum, Catholic Charities has been there time after time, helping families in the aftermath of house fires in rural and metro communities. In between are localized emergencies, like restocking food pantries in Kit Carson County in 2014 after they experienced a four-day power outage that destroyed their food supplies, or responding to apartment complex fires in Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Parish Ministry, like the Catholic Church, is both ancient and new. Charitable works have been a part of parish life - tending to the worldly needs of people was the impetus for the diaconate through the Apostles in Acts 6:1-6. In the early church, each congregation had a list of needy recipients called a matriculum, and comparatively huge amounts of charity were given.  This work was recognized as a sign of the greater promise of God’s love and provision.
