Delivering Food, Shelter, and Hope to the Poorest of the Poor.


Fr. Dennis Rausch entered the seminary in 1970. Before his ordination he spent two years in Papua, New Guinea walking among the people, experiencing full immersion as a missionary in their culture and way of life.

Father Dennis returned to Chicago to complete his studies and felt God’s call to the priesthood. On December 13, 1980 he was ordained a Divine Word Missionary priest in Chicago. Two years later he completed his Master Degree studies focusing on Psycho Theological Integration.

He first served as a Vice Principal and teacher at the community's high school seminary in Bordentown, N.J. He also recruited for the college seminary in Iowa.

In 1996 Father Dennis moved to South Florida and worked for a number of years as a campus minister before being incardinated as a priest of the Archdiocese of Miami. He was involved in parish ministry in Coral Gables, Hallandale, Wilton Manors, and Davie in Florida.

Father Dennis is committed to serving the poor through Cross Catholic Outreach.
