“After next Sunday’s 8 a.m. Mass (Sept. 25) there will be a meeting with parents and children concerning classes for baptism and holy communion,” said Lucille Gomez during weekly church  announcements, after services held at the historic church located off Highway 285, at 505 Gunnison Street.

Gomez went on to explain that Father Derrek Scott agreed to have religious education classes here in Saguache, instead of Catholics having to travel to other parts of the valley to have their children enrolled in the classes necessary for them to receive the sacraments of the Catholic faith. If there is enough interest and children enrolled, they will continue classes in Saguache.

Gomez explained that the decision was to encourage the many Catholics who live in Saguache Today to recommit to their faith, and make sure that their children are getting baptized and receiving First Holy Communion.

For parents, grandparents or anyone interested in learning more about the religious education classes being offered at St. Agnes Church in Saguache, please attend the enrollment and organizational meeting directly following 8 a.m. Mass on Sunday, September 25. Or you may also call Lucille Gomez with St. Agnes Catholic Church Mission at 719-849-1418.
