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 November 6th. Adoration begins after the 9:00 am Mass at 9:30
