The Catholic Daughters will hold their annual Poinsettia & Wreath Sale on the weekend of December 4th & 5th after all Masses.  Beautiful 12”-15” flowers with 6-8 blooms (still only $10) and lovely decorated live wreaths ($25) will be for sale.  Order forms will be included in next week’s bulletin.  Pre-ordering is encouraged.  Proceeds from the sale will be used to support the CDA’s many charitable endeavors  and scholarships.  


Join Fr. Bill and Pastor Mary for a discussion on “The Chosen” episode “The Shepherd” at 11am at Holy Trinity Church, 6 Osborn Ave. in Manasquan or at 7 pm in the St. Denis cafeteria. Even if you have not joined us for a discussion on Season One - no worries - this is not part of Season One but a stand-alone-short film.  We will watch this powerful episode together and then discuss its impact as we enter Advent and await the Birth of Christ. 


The Giving Tree, the Christian symbol of unconditional and selfless love, is returning to St. Denis to help the less fortunate celebrate Christmas. Our Giving Tree will be in the Gathering Space, as well as at the Beach Chapel, November 19th–December 5). We ask that those willing and able take a tag from the Giving Tree and purchase the suggested gift. Kindly return the unwrapped gift, together with the tag taped onto it, the weekend of December 11th & 12th. We truly appreciate your tremendous support as do the worthy charities, and families, benefitting from the Giving Tree.

The Support Group is a group of parish members who have experienced caregiving through every stage and for many illnesses. The group supports individuals who are caregiving through illness of a spouse, parent, child or another loved one. You will be able to share your caregiver story if you’d like, or if you’re not ready to talk, you can simply listen to what others have to say. You will soon realize that there are other people going through the same situation. You will receive from this group useful tips and resources as helpful professionals present topics to assist you in caring for your loved one. This group is perfect for individuals who don’t have family and friends nearby for support and are looking for connections. The group will meet once a month. Consider joining us to find out more and let us help! Please contact Eileen Ziesmer (732) 223-0287  This email address is being protected from spambots.
