Spirit Fire Music Ministry
Spirit Fire My brothers and sisters in Christ; I have been overwhelmed with the love and support you have shown me as I recover from shoulder surgery. The prayers, cards, and calls have meant so much to me. I am doing very well in physical therapy. Mary and I will be back serving at the 5:00 Mass on Saturday, September 3rd, with worship music at 4:30. Once again the community of Saint Denis has shown why it's a great parish. I thank you all from my heart.
