We were made
to be part of it!

Let’s Serve While We Worship


Altar Servers

Altar Servers and Adult Servers assist the presiding priest during the four weekend Liturgies and on holy days and special feast days. Adult servers also help lead the altar servers, who are students in fifth grade and above.

Art & Environment Committee

The Art and Environment Committee provides an appropriate environment of prayer and celebration, consistent with the liturgical calendar and appealing to all senses, to promote parishioner understanding of and participation in the Liturgy. This committee also coordinates the brick orders and maintenance of the Saint Dennis Celebration of Life Garden. An inscribed brick memorial or living tribute gift for a loved one, family member, friend, or self is a permanent gift that celebrates life.

Techies and Creatives… we need you! For both our in-house service and online worship, we need volunteers who understand video production, sound technology, lighting, IT capabilities, and graphic design.

Cantors lead the congregation in song during weekend Masses, weddings, funerals and special Masses. They foster assembly singing, announce hymns and sing the psalm. Cantors are usually a soloist or a duet, but small ensembles are also welcome. An audition may be required.

Saint Dennis has choirs for all ages. Adult Choirs lead the assembly in music at the weekend Liturgies. Contemporary choirs sing at the Saturday 4 pm and Sunday 9 am Mass every other week. The Praise Choir performs traditional four-part music, usually at the Sunday 10:45 am Mass. The Family Choir allows parents with children to raise their voices together in leading song the fourth Sunday at 9 am Mass during the school year. Practices are at 8 am in the Music room before the scheduled Mass.

Hospital Visitation Ministry

Volunteers visit and offer support to hospitalized parishioners at Madison hospitals. Spiritual support with prayer and/or Eucharist is a part of the visit. The parish SHARE Ministry is explained and patient needs for the Ministry’s services upon discharge are determined during the visit. Please let us know if you are going to be hospitalized, know a parishioner who is hospitalized or would like to be part of the Hospital Visitation team.
