Welcome to St. Denis Parish!

Jesus calls us to a life of faith and service. Saint Denis Parish embraces the Gospel message and strives to live its meaning each day through liturgy, outreach, and support for all. We invite you to join us in the mission.

 

2020 GIVING TREE

This year instead of taking a tag off of the Giving Tree in the church, we are asking you to sign up on Signup Genius to purchase your gift.

Please click on the Giving Tree image to sign up to purchase a gift for a child in need.We kindly ask that all gifts be returned, wrapped & with a label/tag on them, to the church no later than Sunday,December 13th, by 12:00PM. 

Alternatively, if you are unable to purchase a gift, but would still like to help, please make a check payable to “St Denis Parish”, write “for giving tree” in the memo, and please put it in an envelope marked “Giving Tree”. We will either purchase gifts with the money or give the Germantown Neighborhood Center gift cards, so that they can purchase the gifts for the children. Please send all monetary donations in by Sunday, December 6th, so that we have time to purchase the gifts before the pick up date.

Feel free to call the Parish Office at 781-326-5858, if you need help signing up or have any questions.

 

2020 Grand Annual Collection

Every parish family should have received a letter from Father asking for a contribution to our Grand Annual Collection to provide a needed addition to the weekly offertory, which does not cover ongoing operating expenses.  The participation of ALL parishioners is essential for the success of this effort.  Please return your gift card today.  Thank you!  If you did not get a letter, please contact the Parish office.

For your convenience, we are now recording Sunday Mass, so you may watch it at your convenience.

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD—AGAIN “Say No to ROE”

The state legislature has extended the session until January 5th, 2021. Please remind the members of the Joint Committee on Judiciary that you oppose the expansion of abortion in Massachusetts. Please call the Committee at 617-722-2396 and let them know you are opposed to H3320 and S1209 – the ROE legislation. Every telephone call helps! 

Remember these bills would remove:

  • The requirement that young girls obtain consent before an abortion
  • The requirement that efforts be made to save a living baby who survives abortion
  • The requirement that late term abortions be performed in hospitals
  • Would allow abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy.

For more information about how the ROE legislation would expand abortion in Massachusetts visit www.macatholic.org  Thank you!
