Ten Confirmation candidates from St. Dennis were Confirmed by Bishop Malooly yesterday at the Church of the Holy Cross in Dover, Delaware. They have worked so hard this year preparing for this sacrament and we are very proud of them! God bless these young people and their families and sponsors as they continue on their faith journey. Special thanks to their catechist, Joe Graney, and to Cathy Stryker for their dedication to our Confirmation class throughout the year!
Sunday, May 13, 2018 is the last day of Religious Education classes for the 2017-18 school year. Thank you to all of the catechists and assistants - without them our Religious Education program would not be possible! They did a wonderful job this year! Thank you also to all of the parents and families who support their children in their spiritual growth and development. Together, we are passing on the Catholic faith to the next generation.
St Dennis Cantor

The music ministry at St Dennis is growing. We now have two guitarists and an organist and have music at most liturgies. While we welcome more instrumentalists, we need to find a few cantors to continue to grow. We’d like to find a few people who have been blessed with a good singing voice, who are willing and able to work with our organist and guitarists, in leading the congregation in song at Sunday Mass and various other liturgical celebrations.
If you have been blessed with the gift of song, this could truly be a blessing for you and your community. This is an entry level position with no experience required. We offer On-the-Job Training and flexible schedules. There is no greater reward than sharing your gift to enhance the sacramental celebrations of your parish. If you feel a “nudge” from the Holy Spirit as you are reading this, please consider coming forward and sharing your gift. Call the Parish office and leave your contact information.
