St. Dennis School Mission Project

        Fr. Francis visited Nebraska in December.  On Thursday, December 17, Fr. Francis concelebrated Mass with Fr. Leo.  The Fr. Francis visited the classroom and spoke to the children, answering numerous questions.  It was a very interesting visit; it brought the goal of mission home to the children in a very real way.
        Diane Lefler from West Point visited the St. Dennis Mission in Uganda, Africa from May 31 to June 16.  Together with her son and a friend, Diane brought over 800 pounds of pillowcase dresses, t-shirts, and drawstring backpacks to give to the students at St. Dennis School.  Diane shared her experience and pictures with the students at HCCS on Thursday, October 29.  For more details, visit the St. Dennis website:
