Altar Servers Needed
The ministry of altar servers is open to all young boys and girls in the parish who have made their First Communion. If you are interested please call Herman Panacek at 410-755-6343.
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.
"Open Your Heart to Christ"
The 2014 Annual Catholic Appeal will conducted in parishes throughout the diocese this weekend. Funds generated by the Appeal provide pastoral, charitable, and educational ministries to tens of thousands of people in our twelve-County diocese. As members of St. Dennis Parish, we are proud to be part of the Church of Wilmington. As members, it is important that we reach out in service to others by sharing our resources. Just as we are one in the Body of Christ, we must remember that we are one with other parishes and the diocese. The Annual Catholic Appeal offers us a chance to work in collaboration to care for the Church by sharing the gifts God has granted us.
Our Parish target is $23,000. Your financial support also provides funding for your parish since [50%] or [100%] (depending upon your parish's obligation of a school) of monies collected above our target will be returned for our own ministerial needs.Read more: 2014 Annual Catholic Appeal
