  1. Will there be a traditional blessing of the food in the church on Saturday April 15th this year? There is a small but faithful to its foreign traditions group of individuals who would like to bring food to be blessed by a priest before Easter. The support of this notion will be greatly appreciated by the parishioners who grew up with this old tradition. Thank you for listening. I hope we will not have to go to another Catholic Church in Fort Collins to experience this tradition. God bless.
