Sundae Sunday
To welcome back Sunday School on Sunday, September 11th, we will celebrate with a make-your-own-sundae bar for our children, their families, and parishioners to enjoy immediately following the 10:00 a.m. service. There will be no 5:30 p.m. Church & Pizza on this day.

Remembering September 11 – On Sunday, September 11th at 4:00 p.m., Saint Denis Church, 2401 St. Denis Lane, Havertown, will mark the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. During a 50-minute church service entitled: From Darkness Into Light, we will have a procession of light, prayers and scripture, and a performance—by the Saint Denis Adult Choir and Orchestra—of Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna (Light Eternal) including a slide presentation of 9/11 scenes during the last movement of this work. Local Police, Firefighters, and Rescue Personnel have been invited to join us as we remember and pray for the victims and survivors of the attacks and the rescue effort. We extend a cordial invitation to you and hope that you will join us. Gratefully, Ralph Purri, Dir. of Liturgy and Music, Saint Denis Church
