GIFT CARDS wanted
Due to the pandemic we will be collecting gift cards only for families in need to purchase school supplies for their own children. Gift cards to WalMart or office supply stores are welcome and can be dropped off at the Rectory or put in the collection baskets in church.
Join the Cemetery Committee here
The Cemetery Committee is looking for volunteers to assist in the renovation of the cemetery grounds. This would include; cleaning of headstones, removal of grubs, insects and weeds as well as the seeding of drought-resistant grass seed, and the long term care of the grounds.
We will provide training on cleaning both marble and granite headstones.
Please let us know if you are willing to participate in this labor of love, and help make the Saint Denis cemetery a beautiful place to visit.
Would you like to join our Safe Re-Open Team?
The Safe Re-Open Team is a group of volunteers that helps us welcome parishioners at Mass, usher them to their seats and coordinate the distribution of Holy Communion. With their help we follow all the State and Diocesan guidelines to be as safe as we can be during this time of pandemic.
