Stained Glass Window Restoration:
Pictorial pamphlets are being prepared for sponsoring the restoration of a window. This will be an opportunity to memorialize or honor a loved one in perpetuity. We have found documentation that our windows & Stations of the Cross are works of art designed by Paula H Balano, the “first lady” of stained glass in Philadelphia!
National Register of Historic Places: Documentation of the origin of our stained glass windows was discovered while researching at the Diocesan Archives!! Very Exciting!! This significant finding will be included in St Dennis’ application to the NRHP.

Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers Needed
Lectors are members of the parish who proclaim the Word in the first two scripture readings and the responsorial psalm. They also assist in creating a hospitable and prayerful environment by praying the Prayers of the Faithful.
A Eucharistic minister of Holy Communion assists in the distribution of Holy Communion at Mass. They may also take communion to the sick at home, in hospitals or nursing homes.
