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). In 2014 we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Congregation of Holy Cross in the Tri-Community!

Currently serving the Tri-Community are:

Rev. Ronald Patrick Raab, CSC   Pastor
Rev. Andrew M. Gawrych, CSC.  Associate Pastor

During Lent, all three communities will be collecting new men's underwear and socks for the Lord's Dinner and Catholic Charities.
