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 Sunday. If you are new to our area, please see our First Time Visitor’s 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.

Mission Statement

To be a welcoming Catholic Community, teaching God’s word, helping those in need, and living a life in Christ.

Sweet Dreams Colorado Collection

Sweet Dreams Colorado is a not-for-profit organization that  delivers new pajamas and new books to the abused and abandoned children living in group homes and foster care.

We are collecting pajamas and goodnight storybooks for over 1400 foster children served by Sweet Dreams Colorado.  Black Friday sales are an excellent opportunity to find inexpensive pajamas. Even a pair of fleece pants with a t-shirt are much appreciated. We need sizes child 6 to adult 2xl. 

Pajamas more in need than storybooks. They had a nice donation of new books for all ages. Storybooks must be new. (Who knew that used books sometimes are used to transport drugs?)  

There is a Christmas tree in the Narthex. It has paper ornaments take as a reminder. We will be collecting until December 3, 2017, and even afterwards if some trickle in late.

Thank you for your generosity.

Mass Intentions

With the addition of daily Masses we have increased opportunities for Mass Intentions.

If you would like a Mass said as a special intention or for your loved one, living or deceased, please contact the office, (719) 495 -1426.

We ask for a donation of $10 for a Mass Intention. You may call the parish office at (719) 495-1426 to schedule a Mass and pay in person in the office, or place a check in the mail. When we receive payment we will schedule your Mass Intention. If mailing a check, please be sure to clearly print for whom the Mass is to be said, the intention (for example 'in memory of' or anniversary, etc.) and include your name for publication in the bulletin.

Mass Times are:

  • Monday thru Thursday - 12:15pm
  • Saturday - 5:00pm
  • Sunday - 9:00am
