FATHER DENNIS THOMPSON
Fr. Dennis hopes to welcome all home to our Catholic Church. As in his favorite Gospel story of the Prodigal Son and the generous father, he believes we are all prodigal sons and daughters in need of the loving embrace of the father. The Church is our home and our God is that kind and merciful loving father there to meet us just as we are and welcome us home.
