Parish News/Events

“The Story of a Soul” is a spiritual classic written by St. Therese of Lisieux, a young woman named “Doctor of the Church” for the spiritual insight found in her autobiography. Men and women of any age and any spirituality can be inspired by her! We will have a book discussion in three sessions - June 11, 18, & 25 at either 11am of 7pm in the church. This discussion is part of a larger collaboration in our “Lutheran – Catholic Dialogue” – other “Holy Inspiration” book discussions will follow at Holy Trinity Lutheran and St. Mark’s Catholic churches in the future. Do you have to read the book to take part? No. But if you would like to read this very readable book, we will be using the definitive translation from the Institute of Carmelite Studies, translated by John Clarke. You can purchase it from for $13.95 or elsewhere (ISBN 0-935216-58-8) or call the office for information and request that we order for you, 732-223-0287. (Deadline for ordering Monday, May 27th)

Our Manasquan Area Ministerium has invited Pastor Hank Lay to give a discussion series about Islam, a world religion he has studied for decades. We continue our series on Wednesday, May 22nd and conclude on Wednesday, May 29th, either from 11 a.m.-noon at St. Denis (school cafeteria) or 7-8 p.m. at Holy Trinity Church in Manasquan.  

Tuesday, May 21st at 7pm in the church.  Let us join together to pray for all the First Responders who have died.  We will also pray for God’s blessings for all who currently serve as Police Officers, Firefighters, Emergency Medical Technicians, Lifeguards and those who serve in the armed forces. 

“The way we pray, is the way we believe, is the way we live” – this ancient Church maxim is the framework that will be used to have a dynamic discussion on the famous words of praise that conclude the Eucharistic Prayer at Mass – “Through Him, with Him, in Him.”  We will meet at 11am and also 7pm in the Church on Monday, May 20th.

Save the Date- June 24-28, 2019.  Vacation Bible Camp will be held in the scool building from 2-5 pm for children ages 4-11.  Registration is now open.  Please call the Religious Education Office at 732-223-1161 to register your child/children or to volunteer to help.

BLAZE is the Walking With Purpose program developed for middle-school-age girls. Our mission in Blaze is to speak truth into the hearts of girls who are bombarded by lies about their true worth and beauty. Every week they are introduced to a lie in our culture which is then countered with a biblical truth. The Bible becomes relevant, and girls begin to recognize the difference between the loving, affirming voice of their heavenly Father and the voices that tell them they aren’t good enough. Teaching these young girls how to use the Bible as a tool for spiritual growth encourages daily prayer and strengthens their bond with God and family. (From Blaze: Middle School Girl’s Curriculum Leader’s Guide). Meetings will be held Fridays, 6:30-7:30 pm and will continue 2-3 times per month until May.
