May is the month of Mary: In addition to the different feast days honoring Our Lady, the entire month of May is especially given to her praise. In the words of Pope Paul VI: May is "a month which the piety of the faithful has long dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God . . . For this is the month during which Christians, in their churches and their homes, offer the Virgin Mother more fervent and loving acts of homage and veneration; and it is the month in which a greater abundance of God's merciful gifts comes down to us from our Mother's throne."
Bottle Deposits: You may donate your bottles to the church by bringing your empties to the Bottle
Depot located at 103 Boulder Crescent. Please inform them that they are for Our Lady of the Rockies Parish. Thank you for your support.
