On the National Day of Service, September 11th, members of the church in Parker hosted 2 Food Drives, one at the Main St. building to benefit the Parker Task Force Food Bank, and a 2nd at the Elizabeth Building to benefit both Elizabeth & Kiowa Creek Food Banks.
All went well! As always, the Parker Task Force and the food banks in Elizabeth and Kiowa Creek were so very appreciative of our efforts. Learn more about the Parker Task Force and how you can volunteer at https://www.justserve.org/parkertaskforce_parker
Mike Alletto is a member of the Ponderosa congregation (ward) in the Parker Stake. Recently he collapsed at DIA due to a severe stroke.
The healthcare professionals at CUHealth were amazed by his fast recovery. The day after his surgery his neurosurgeon found Mike in his recovery room reading a complex book. That kind of speedy recovery from a stroke this severe is extremely rare.
Mike credits his faith in Christ along with the work of the professionals at CUHealth for his fast recovery. The interesting side-story… how frustrated Mike was that he wouldn’t be at church on Sunday to teach his class.
“The only time we’d miss is if two things: if we go to see our grandkids or if I get stuck in the hospital because of a stroke,” Alletto said.

On March 11th, the Parker Colorado Stake of The Church of Jesus of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) hosted the fourth annual Parker Interfaith Easter Night of Music. The Night of Music is an opportunity for members of various faiths in the Parker area to come together and celebrate the Easter season through music.
This year, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church was the honored guest for the evening. Choirs and congregants from both churches performed sacred vocal and instrumental musical numbers. The quality of the performances was nothing short of stunning. There was a beautiful spirit present, with some pieces bringing several members of the audience to tears.
