Welcome to the Church of Saint Denis Website...  

 elcome to St. Denis Church. 
We are a Roman Catholic Community of Faith located in the Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey under the leadership of Bishop David M. O'Connell.

IS GOD CALLING YOU? 

From the first moment of our existence, we are all called to a life of service. For some it is marriage, some may be called to serve others through the single life. For a select few, that call is to serve through a life of consecrated religious or ordained ministry.
Could this last be YOU? Could God be reaching out to you to serve His people as a priest, permanent deacon, religious sister or brother?
Find out more by talking to one of our parish clergy, religious sisters or by contacting the Diocese on the Web at our
Office of Vocations here.
