Care for Creation Team

In response to Pope Francis’ Encyclical ‘Laudato Si’ on Care for Our Common Home, this group has been working on developing a parish-based response to the encyclical through prayer, education and direct actions. Pope Francis asks us, “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to the children who are now going up?” Our parish addresses many of the issues in the encyclical regarding assistance to the poor, disadvantaged and hungry. This group addresses issues primarily dealing with global warming and preservation and conservation of natural resources. The main goal of the group is to reduce the parish’s impact on the environment and to encourage and assist individual parishioners on reducing their impact as well.  In ‘Laudato Si’ we hear, “Climate change is a global problem… It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day”. The church, our church, Saint Dennis can lead by doing.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)

A process for adults who are seeking to be baptized and join the Catholic Church. It is also for baptized adults who are interested in completing their full membership into the Catholic Church through the reception of Holy Eucharist and/or Confirmation. This process helps adults grow in their relationship with God, become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices and experience community of faith through friendships and service. RCIA team members and sponsors provide support and share their faith.
