Dear Families, Friends, and Visitors of Guardian Angels Parish,
Welcome to virtual Guardian Angels website! Thanks for visiting us. Our new Parish Center building with church is even better than this website, so we hope to meet you in person. When you come to the office, you can receive a booklet explaining all the spirituality and symbols of our new building. The Mass schedule and bulletin information are just a click away to the left of this letter.
Since the first Mass of Christmas Eve, we’ve moved into our new Parish Center, and on January 1, 2018 we blessed the building and dedicated our new worship space led by Archbishop Aquila. One hundred and seven years since the parish founding, we gathered on the exact date of our anniversary to celebrate our history and take a giant step into our future.
Nearly four months later and in the Easter season, we’ve completed the major liturgies of the Church year. We’re learning a lot about how to fit in this new space. We’ve been surprised and happy about the size of the crowds and growth of the parish. If you’re from Berthoud or Mead, then this is your parish. The parish registration form is under the “About Us” button in the tool bar. Please sign up and join our growing parish.
We’ve also become a young parish; I’m completely wowed by the number of children who make their offertory and participate in our faith formation programs. Our median age now is about 32!
As your pastor, my focus is on hospitality first and foremost. One of the relics in our altar is St. Josephine Bakhita, patron saint of hospitality. Our parish is not just taking care of ourselves but reaches out with open arms to serve and participate in the local communities of Berthoud and Mead.
Annually, our parish returns well over 10% of our Sunday offertory to the needs of the people regardless of faith choices, and beyond our parish. We are happy to partner with Mead Rotary to build a water project in Nicaragua.
Now that Easter is here, and the sanctuary is adorned with fresh flowers, we’re excited that the winter is past, the trees are about to bud, grass is greening, crocuses are popping up, and spring is coming on. Let our hearts see in these signs of life from our Creator God, and come to believe in the Resurrection of the dead and of our Lord Jesus. God is blessing us!
Your pastoral staff, parish leadership, and service organizations are here for you. We’ve come a long way since 1911 with our little old white church a landmark in town, and a treasure house of deep spiritual memories. All the good things that happen here come about because of the parish leadership and volunteers.
Thank you for looking in on us. We hope you find answers to your questions, and if not, please don’t hesitate to call us. We invite you sign up, settle in, experience the love God has for you, and praise God for so much life and blessings as we have here at Guardian Angels.
Your pastor, sincerely,
