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

Memorial Day Mass
Flag Monday, May 30th is Memorial Day and we will celebrate our annual Mass (weather permitting) outside near the Veteran's section of our cemetery. Of course this day is set aside to honor all of the gallant Service members who made the ultimate sacrifice. Mass begins at 9am and in case of inclement weather we will celebrate the Mass inside. A flag that was flown on board the San Antonio-Class Amphibious Transport Dock, USS NEW YORK (LPD 21) on May 10, 2010 will be flown that day on the Cemetery Flag Pole. LPD 21 was built with steel from the World Trade Center. SGT Robert Contini (NY Army National Guard) will play Taps. Light refreshments will be served in the parish center afterwards. Please come to worship with us in celebration of those who gave their lives in the name of freedom.

    Charasmatic Prayer Group
    The Charismatic Prayer group at St. Denis will begin meeting again on the First Friday of each month beginning Friday, June 3rd at 7pm. 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) particularly those who might be going to or have gone to the Steubenville conference. 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. Join us to experience communal prayer in a style different than you might be used to. As we celebrate the birth of the Church at Pentecost and the Year of Mercy, let us yield to the Holy Spirit and rely on His Power. For more information, contact Mary Nevins at 549-3671.
