St. Denis ~ A Community of Faith
    • Pastor's Note
      Dear Friends,

                      On behalf of Father Lucas, Monsignor Trinity, Deacon Schlegel, Deacon Connors, our staff and the Sisters, I wish you a very blessed Easter Sunday and Easter Season filled with resurrection joy.  We believe that the celebration of Easter could never be confined to one single day and thus the Church celebrates Easter for fifty days.  We wish you a peaceful season.

                      I also take the opportunity to sincerely thank all of those who helped in any way to make our Holy Week and Easter Celebrations so beautiful.  All of your efforts help us to focus on the glory of this day.  In particular, I express deep thanks to our liturgical ministers for their willingness to serve during the past few days.  Sincere thanks to the Choir for lifting our hearts in song to praise our Resurrected Lord and for all of your preparations leading up to these days.  To all those who assisted in making our Church look so beautiful, I thank you for all of your talents shared during these past few days.  Again, we are grateful to the preparations of the Boy Scouts who each year help with all of the outdoor preparations.  Our sincere thanks to all who helped make these days so beautiful for us!

                      My prayers are with you as you celebrate with your family this great day of Resurrection.  Let us pray for one another so that we might grow in our knowledge of God’s tremendous love for each of us.  A love poured out for us!

                      I would like to remind you that we are having a “Stewardship Celebration” next Saturday, April 26th.  Please contact the Parish Office to RSVP.

                                                                                                                                      Easter Blessings,

                                                                                                                                      KJG
