54-Day Rosary Novena

August 15 – October 7


Our Lady of Fatima


From now through October 7, we are praying a 54-day Rosary Novena for our Church, our country, and our world, and for an end to the pandemic.  The first 27 days are prayers of petition; and the second 27 days will be prayers of thanksgiving. 

You can participate in this novena by praying the Rosary every day wherever you are—e.g., at home, when you drive to work, when you are exercising, etc.  In addition, each day, some parishioners are meeting in our courtyard (with strict social distancing) to pray the Rosary together. Weekdays (Monday through Friday), they are meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the courtyard; and on Saturday and Sunday, they are meeting at 6:30 p.m.

For general instructions on praying the Rosary, please click here or here.  For particular instructions for praying this 54-day Rosary Novena, please click here

 


 

St. Denis Now

St. Denis Now is a video series in which Fr. John Palmer talks with different members of the St. Denis community about what’s happening at St. Denis.  All of the episodes are available on St. Denis’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
 

In Episode 4, Fr. John talks with Celia Flores, our Director of Religious Education.  She explains how she and her catechists are helping the children and their families grow in the faith even though everyone is at home because of the Governor's "Stay at Home Order."
 

In Episode 3, Fr. John talks with Patrick Zubiate, who is our Director of Music.  They talk about reopening St. Denis Church. 
 

In Episode 2, Fr. John interviews Veronica Smith, a parishioner who is a licensed clinical social worker.  She advises parents, children, and all of us what we can do to deal with the anxiety, stress, and depression caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
 

In Episode 1, Fr. John talks with Jasmine Blackburn, who is our director of Teen Confirmation and Youth Ministry; and they discuss the way forward for St. Denis after COVID-19 in the weeks and months ahead. 

 


 

 


Archbishop José Gomez invites every Catholic to make his or her commitment for 2020 to Together in Mission, which provides financial assistance to 67 poor parishes and 74 poor Catholic schools in the Los Angeles Archdiocese. 

This year, our parish has been asked to raise $129,494.  Last year, 488 parish donors helped us to raise $142,003; and we exceeded our goal for the first time in several years.  We sincerely thank everyone who contributed last year and who will contribute this year to Together in Mission.  

This year’s theme “Our Story is Alive” reminds us that our gifts to Together in Mission are an active demonstration of our faith and love for those in our Archdiocese who need our support.  Please make a pledge with the information that was mailed to your home, the pledge envelopes that are available in the pews, online at ourmissionla.org/give, or by calling 213-637-7672.

When making a pledge, please indicate that St. Denis is your parish so that your pledge and donations will count toward St. Denis's 2020 goal.

Your gifts to Together in Mission ensure that every Catholic living in the Archdiocese has a parish to celebrate their faith and access to a Catholic school education.  You are living your faith through your actions when you support Together in Mission. 

Thank you for your generosity.

Again, the website for Together in Mission is ourmissionla.org/give; and please do not forget to select St Denis as your parish.

 

 



Important notice

The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will be postponed due to the current situation caused by the corona pandemic. The basis for this is a decision of the district administration of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which prohibits the performance of the event planned from 16.05.2020 to 04.10.2020. The health of our guests and participants is our highest priority, therefore the responsible persons have decided to postpone the premiere of the Passion Play, which was planned for 16 May 2020, until 2022. The premiere is now scheduled for May 21, 2022.


The health of the population is a top priority for the community of Oberammergau and the directing team around Christian Stückl as well. The Corona pandemic has made it impossible to complete this year's play without endangering the performers and guests. Furthermore, the perspective for this year is unclear. A postponement of only a few months seemed unacceptable to everyone involved.
