Bull Roast Sponsors

July 2nd 2020
Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Dennis Parish,
I hope and pray that all is well with you and your loved ones and the good folks of your businesses!
This is an unprecedented time which has caused significant challenges and one from which we all hope that we can emerge unscathed personally and business wise too. Our church is no different. Just as you have personal and business concerns including financial obligations, St. Dennis does as well.
To help raise the funds necessary for the survival of St. Dennis Church, our parish intends to hold its annual Bull Roast on July 25th. This event is one of the mainstays of our efforts to balance our budget and to provide a good meal and community fellowship. But, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we may not have our usual wonderful Bull Roast Festival on the scale that we experienced last summer. Our Fund-Raising Committee is trying to assemble as much interaction as possible within the government’s and Church’s guidelines for safe gatherings.

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time - July 5, 2020
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the clever you have revealed them to the little ones…Come to me all you who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart...”
Jesus’ prayer of praise, directed to the Father, is for our benefit. I want to be considered a ‘little one’ and grow in my knowledge and love of the Lord. He wishes to continue to reveal His goodness to me.
Surely most of us have learned to use new cell phones, iPads and computers. We learn to use new gadgets. May you take steps, especially during these summer months, to learn to be meek,
humble of heart and live all the beatitudes - pure of heart, worker for justice, peacemaker and poor in spirit.

The adornment of our Church with plants and flowers from God’s creation is a way for us to remember loved ones and to give thanks to God for people or events in our lives. Altar flower requests envelopes are currently being accepted for Easter. Easter envelopes can be found in the racks on the back of the pews. Thank you for your love of our church.

The “CARE WEAR” Project
The shelter for homeless families in Earleville – Deep Roots (formerly Clairvaux Farms) has expressed its critical need for the most basic of clothing – new underwear. Please consider donating men’s and ladies’ undergarments. The roomier sizes are suggested - Large and Extra Large, etc. Also needed are toddler-sized “pull ups” for young children who are potty training. Your help is greatly appreciated. Please place new, packaged underwear in the basket that is in the main entry area of our church. Two notes of thanks have come to all parishioners from the shelter.
God bless you for your generosity.
