Weekly or monthly Automatic Offertory Giving is available through Vanco Services, the approved Archdiocese of Denver vendor.
We invite generous parishioners to help fund specific events or items for the Fatima Centennial celebration. Donations would graciously be accepted for:
Your support of the 2016 Archbishop's Catholic Appeal will provide the means necessary for our Church to build upon her past successes. All members of our parish are asked to support the Appeal. Thank you for your charity.
The Church does not have any hard-and-fast rules for financial support. We are simply asked to give according to our means. However, in scripture, the Israelites were asked to give God ten percent of their harvest, and the tithe has become a standard for most Christian communities, including Our Lady of Fatima. We ask that each family apportion their tithe as follows:
Some families may have difficulty giving 5%. If so, try increasing your current level by 1 or 2 percent of income. Over time, with careful budgeting, most families can reach the 5%.
The Annual Sundancer Gala is the most important fundraising event for Our Lady of Fatima community. Proceeds generated from the event provide crucial funding for our school, the Gabriel House, Habitat for Humanity, and outreach efforts for the poor and hungry in our community.
The 2016 event was a Kentucky Derby themed evening held at the lovely Pinehurst Country Club featuring dinner, dancing, live and silent auction. Our host and auctioneer for the evening was Mr. Reggie Rivers. Stay tuned for details about our 2017 Sundancer.

The Catholic Foundation was established in 1998 as a framework for current and deferred major gifts and endowments to Catholic organizations. Our Lady of Fatima Parish has partnered with The Catholic Foundation of Northern Colorado to provide for future needs and ministries by stewarding gifts to the Our Lady of Fatima Parish & School Fund.
Creating a Will is an important way to record and remember what matters most to you, including your parish and our Catholic community. The Catholic Foundation can help you understand the advantages of creating a Will - and how you can give it a way to do greater good through a bequest to Our Lady of Fatima Parish. What better way to leave your legacy than in the love of Jesus Christ?
IRA charitable rollovers are another way you and the Church can benefit. Each IRA owner over age 70 ½ may make a transfer of up to $100,000 per year to a qualified charity. IRA charitable rollovers are tax-free and not included in adjusted gross income. An IRA charitable rollover may fulfill part or all of your required minimum distribution (RMD).
For a free consultation and more information on how your gifts benefit Our Lady of Fatima Parish and School, please call Jean Finegan at 303-867-0613 or visit the Catholic Foundation website.
