A warm welcome to the Tri-Community Catholic Parish of Colorado Springs!

Our three churches—Sacred Heart on the west side of Colorado Springs, Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Manitou Springs, and Holy Rosary Chapel in Cascade (lower Ute Pass)—operate as one faith community. The pastoral services and planning are united, although each of the churches has its own schedule of Sunday Masses, and its own distinct “flavor” to its worship and community interaction.

Welcome to our website! Browse through our pages to learn about us. Come and worship with us at any time. Please don't hesitate to call the Office at (719) 633-8711 or toll free at (877) 737-5142 with any questions, or click here to contact us by e-mail.

who we are

The clergy who serve the Tri-Community come from the Congregation of Holy Cross, U.S. Province (the provincial offices are located at Notre Dame, Indiana).

Currently serving the Tri-Community are:

Rev. Ronald Patrick Raab, CSC Pastor
Rev. Robert E. Roetzel, CSC. Associate Pastor

The Tri-Community is fully committed to creating a "safe environment" for our children!

Click here to read the Bishops' Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People,
which is the foundation for a safe environment and with which all parishes in our diocese are expected to comply. We are making a dedicated effort, however, to move beyond mere "compliance" in the way we approach a safe environment, and are continually evaluating our programs and facilities to look for ways to expand and enhance what we're doing to keep our children, and everyone, safe. Lisa Haight, our Safe Environment Coordinator, will be offering regular updates and education to keep you informed!
