Welcome to St. Benedict Catholic Church 

We are a growing Catholic community located in Falcon, Colorado, about 10 miles northeast of Colorado Springs in El Paso County.  Newcomers and visitors are always welcome.  We invite you to join us as we celebrate Mass each weekend, on Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Daily Mass is celebrated Mondays through Thursdays at 12:15pm 

If you are new to our area, please see our Church Building History page for a consolidated overview of our Parish. 

On October 8, 2017, Bishop Michael Sheridan dedicated our new church and consecrated the altar.  We look forward to celebrating Mass and sacraments in our new church as we continue to spread the faith. Here's a link to the Colorado Catholic Herald October 20, 2017, edition article St. Benedict Dedicates New Church After Long Labor of Love  See pages 10-11.

Please note the Traffic Flow for St. Benedict's property.

Returning God's Gifts 2019

St. Benedict parish is please to announce the 2019 Returning God’s Gifts Annual Appeal.

Once again our Bishop asks us to help support the work of our diocesan programs and ministries that provide services that no one parish could support on its own. As one family in faith, we are called to work together to care for the Church by sharing the gifts God has granted us.  

Our parish goal is $23,515.00  with 100% participation of our members. Every gift counts, no matter how small.  Please participate and continue God’s work of faith, hope and charity.
