our God, when your Son was dying on the altar of
the cross, he gave us as our mother the one he had
chosen to be his own mother, the Blessed Virgin
Mary; grant that we who call upon the holy name of
Mary, our mother, with confidence in her
protection may receive strength and comfort in all

Remember to use February and March to build up your Parish’s AMD reserve (former DMF) so we have extra funds
available to pay the 15% Tax starting in April and beyond. How much we receive in February and March will determine
how we budget for each Parish for the upcoming Fiscal Year (July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022.)
Thank You to everyone for your continued generosity in Parish support.
We receive the bulk of support by mail and it is deeply appreciated.

NOTICE TO ALL PARISHIONERS
June 7, 2021
Parishioners of Our Lady of the Meadows:
We have finally come full circle (almost) with the pandemic situation. After we checked with the Pueblo Health Department and received specific permissions from the Diocese, we are ready to open up freer of pandemic restrictions. Starting this
weekend, we will begin to do our Sunday Liturgies pretty much the same as pre-pandemic:
● All entrance doors to the church are now available.
● Holy Water will be in the Baptism Font for Blessing.
● Gather Books and Prayer Cards are back in the pews. Join in hymns.
● Masks are optional for the fully vaccinated. Masks should be worn by the unvaccinated (Health Department).
● Seating will be as normal. People wishing to be spaced will be accommodated (tell the Hospitality Minister).
● We will not pass the Offertory Baskets. Please continue to contribute using the baskets at the entrances when you enter the Church.
● Peace Greeting will be invited. Physical touch with family. Nod and speak Peace to non-family. Same for the Our Father
-- you may join hands with family.
● Communion will continue with only the Host being distributed. We will need specific permission from the Bishop before return to the Chalice. Communion Ministers will continue to sanitize their hands and wear masks. Communion will be distributed in four lines if size of the congregation and availability of Eucharistic Ministers allows. If the congregation is smaller, we will do only two lines down the center aisle. Keep some distance between yourself or your group and others
lowering your mask prior to receiving Communion. Please receive by open hand only.
We’ll see how it goes this weekend. Now that we can accommodate more people, I hope to see a return to pre-pandemic numbers in attendance.
... May Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus hear our prayers and lead us to victory over Satan, the Adversary, the Enemy of Christ and humankind. May we more deeply journey through the Heart of Jesus in the year ahead, to proclaim the Gospel in our diocese, always mindful of the most precious gift with which we have been entrusted: the safety, future and faith of our children."
How can we protect our children when we don't respect life?
I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child - a direct killing of the innocent child - murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love, and we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts.--Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice, and holding fast to him. For that will mean life for you, a long life for you to live on the land which the LORD swore to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give to them. Dt 30:19-20
Let us Pray: Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
all, let your love for one another be intense, because
love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one
another without complaining. As each one has
received a gift, use it to serve one another as good
stewards of God's varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it
be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with
the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God
may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong
glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen

the Meadows Catholic Church
You have been told, O mortal, what is good, and what the LORD requires of you:
Only to do justice and to love goodness, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
