COFFEE & BAGEL Sunday's
Come join us after all Sunday
Masses on the second Sunday of
each month for a bite to eat and an
opportunity to socialize with those
you may see only on the run on Sundays and/or
meet some new people as well. This is a great
way to help to build up our community and the
coffee and bagels are free.
We meet in someone’s home on the third Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. to discuss a book that will help us to learn about or grow in our faith in some way.

Four times a year we conduct a blood drive in our parish center in cooperation with a regional chapter of the New York Blood Center. Parishioners (and others) are invited to donate. Volunteers assist in recruiting potential donors and with various tasks on the day of the blood drive.

Breakfast With Santa
Is meant to help our faith community remain focused on Christ as the center of the Christmas season. On the second weekend in December, during our Coffee & Bagel Fellowship after the 9:00 & 10:30 a.m. Masses Santa sits with the children and reads a faith-based Christmas story, gives out presents and poses for pictures.
Volunteer Opportunity: Volunteers are needed to help wrap gifts purchased by Santa, cook, serve, decorate the Parish Hall, help Santa and clean up.

Operation Christmas Child
Millions of children around the world experience the joy of Christmas each year as Samaritan's Purse distributed gift filled shoe boxes to one hundred countries. This was made possible by individuals, and church groups in the United States and around the world that prepared, collected, and processed shoe box gifts. Every November at St. Denis Church the children (and adults) bring their filled shoe boxes to the Church. The children are given the opportunity to present their gifts at the Altar to be blessed before the boxes make their journey, and sing before the congregation at the Children's Mass.
