Mission Statement

We are an open Church in the Roman Catholic tradition: Opening our hearts in worship, opening our minds for discipleship, opening our eyes, ears, and hands in service and fellowship, and reaching out to all.

    St. Denis Vision Statement

Fulfilling the Great

"...Go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you...."

By living the Great Commandment:

"...Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself...."


Our Monthly Adoration will take place on December 4th. Adoration begins after the 9:00 am Mass at 9:30
and ends with Benediction and Evening Prayer starting at 4:30pm. Please come spend time with our Lord.

Parish Events

This Sunday we begin the season of Advent and the new Liturgical Year C, a new year of grace and salvation. Advent has a two- fold character: first, as a season to prepare for Christmas when Christ's first coming to us is remembered. Secondly, Advent is a season when that remembrance directs our hearts and minds to await Christ's second coming at the end of time and at the end of our life. The official color for the season is Violet.

We remember Christ's first coming again during Advent by attending daily Mass, by prayer, and by receiving the sacraments of reconciliation and Holy Communion. We also will show acts of kindness toward one another, and by giving gifts in His name to our family, children and friends.

Give thanks, give the gift of life!

St. Denis Blood Drive This Sunday, Nov. 29 from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parish center. Cards will be available to dedicate your gift of life to a loved one and will be placed by the tabernacle the following weekend. Please Donate and Save a Life.
