Farewell to Father Dennis

May 3, 2019

Fenwick Director of Campus Ministry, Soccer Coach and Alumnus Fr. Dennis Woerter, O.P. ’86 is heading to Indiana University on July 1.


Father Dennis Woerter, O.P. ’86 has received the call to leave Fenwick at the end of this academic year. Fr. Dennis has led our school’s Campus Ministry initiatives since 2012.

“The provincial asked me to move to Bloomington, IN, to join the staff at the St. Paul Catholic Center at Indiana University. I will be an associate pastor, campus minister, and will coordinate their Hispanic ministry,” Fr. D. explains.

“I have been here seven years, which is a long time for a Dominican to be anywhere!" he exclaims. "This has been an absolutely wonderful ministry, one I will miss, but it is time to move on. We must remember that nothing is permanent in the Order.

"I am excited about this opportunity, as one should be when preparing for a new ministry. One aspect that excites me is that I will be able to reconnect (in person) with a couple of our former students I have remained in contact with. And I become a Fenwick connection at IU."

“Peace to you all," Fr. D. concludes while also asking for our continued prayers.
