Saint Denis Catholic Church is in Hanover, New Hampshire, the home of Dartmouth College. It is a parish of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Manchester. The parish was founded in 1907, and the cornerstone of the present church was laid in 1922. It has been a place of peace and contemplation for over one hundred years, where area residents, college students, and visitors alike are invited to find fellowship and to worship God in Word and in Sacrament, in Spirit and in Truth.
In 2007, Saint Denis Parish was entrusted to the pastoral care of the Dominican Friars of the Province of Saint Joseph (New York), who also minister at Aquinas House, the Catholic Campus Ministry at Dartmouth College.

Some notes regarding Mass attendance
With a letter dated June 6, Bishop Libasci of the Diocese of Manchester eased most restrictions and cautions regarding the celebration of public Masses in the parishes in New Hampshire. Social distancing is no longer required and the wearing of a face covering is optional. It is up to the individual to determine what he or she feels most comfortable with while participating at Mass.
In a second letter dated June 8, the Bishop informed the faithful of the Diocese of Manchester that the Bishops of New England would all be reinstating the Sunday obligation to attend Mass as of the weekend of June 19/20, 2021. Obviously, anyone who is sick is not bound by this obligation, as was the case even before the global pandemic. The Offertory Procession (the bringing up of the gifts of bread and wine), the exchange of the Sign of Peace among the people, and receiving the Precious Blood from a common chalice remain suspended.
Please join Fr. Brian virtually in prayer
For the time being, we will continue to live stream the daily and weekend Masses from Saint Denis for the benefit of those who must stay at home.
The church is open daily for private prayer from 7:00 am- 4:00 pm. There are days when it is open later than 4 PM such as Wednesdays when Confessions are heard from 4 - 4:30 and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is celebrated at 4:50 PM.
