Welcome to Saint Mary Parish

Welcome to Saint Mary Parish in Rifle and Sacred Heart in Silt are on the Western Slope of Colorado, about 25 miles west of Glenwood Springs, CO.

We are a bi-cultural Parish, of English and Spanish speaking people. Saint Mary Parish was established in 1910. Our Church and Rectory and other buildings were on Fifth Street in Rifle. In 1996 we purchased about 6 acres of land on the corner of 7th and Birch. We planned for and began to build our new Church in February of 2001.

We moved up the hill to our new Church on October 7, 2001. This was the first phase of construction. The upper part of the building was not complete but we had Mass in the lower part of the building. On the Second Sunday of Advent, December 5, 2004, Archbishop Chaput came to Rifle to dedicate our permanent Church.

Mass Times

We are pleased to announce our Confirmation Masses, Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 1:00PM and 5:00PM with Very Rev. Giovanni Capucci.  Both Masses are bilingual. Everyone is welcome to attend.
These Mass times necessitated canceling the regular Saturday Mass schedule of 4:30PM (English) and 7:00PM (Spanish). However, the 5:00PM Confirmation Mass is an anticipated Mass for Sunday, so those attending this Mass do not need to attend Mass on Sunday.
Our Sunday schedule remains as usual:
7:30AM at Sacred Heart in Silt (English)
9:30AM at St. Mary (English)
12:30PM at St. Mary (Spanish)
Because of Spring Break, there are no Religious Education classes on Sunday, March 19.
