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
Commission:

"...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...."

Parish Events


Vacation Bible School
We will have our annual Vacation Bible School the week of August 1-4. Please note this is only 4 days and we will end on Thursday, not Friday. Children 4 years old through 4th grade are welcome to join us for this year's "Barnyard Round Up". The cost is $25 per child. Registration forms can be picked up at the rectory or in the church and should be returned to the rectory by June 30th. There is limited space in each age group so get your forms in early. We are also in need of parents to volunteer to help so please note your availability on the registration form.

Thirsty?
Come to the Charismatic Prayer Meeting at St. Denis on Friday, July 1 at 7:00pm in the church. There will be a time of Praise and Worship, Scripture, Witness, Prophetic Word and Charismatic Prayer. We especially welcome young people (high school, college and beyond) and those who might be going or who have gone in the past to the summer conference at Steubenville East. If you have never been to a Charismatic prayer meeting, come and see! No experience necessary, just be present to the Lord and have a heart open to the Holy Spirit. Whatever it is you are thirsty for, Jesus is the answer to your thirst. Bibles are available or bring your own. For more information, contact Mary Nevins at 549-3671.

Altar Servers, Childrens Choir, Sacrastans and Families
We have reserved tickets for the Renegades Baseball Game on Tuesday, August 23rd, a 7:05 pm game (gates open at 5:30pm) against the Connecticut Tigers. It will be held in the right field picnic area and all children who attend in our group will receive a Renegades cap. There will be a barbeque for us with unlimited food and soda, from 6:00 pm until approximately 8PM. To sign up for this outing, please complete a Permission Slip (copies available in the Sacristy) and return it as soon as possible to the Rectory Office (227-8382). Of course, there is no cost for Altar Servers, Children's Choir, or Sacristans for their service to the Lord.
