Deacon Daniel Deneke


Deacon Daniel started with us in March 2019. He was Ordained by Bishop Malone in 2018 and spent his first year at Our Lady of Pompeii in Lancaster. "Being a deacon is a unique vocation that straddles ordained ministries in the diocese and family/work life. My family includes my wife, Denise, married in 1993, our daughters, Lillian, 23, and Sylvia, 21, and our dogs. Denise and I have supported our family as public school teachers since the mid '90s and continue to do so. Our daughters are pursuing their careers through college and beyond. We live in Marilla and raised our family at Immaculate Conception parish in East Aurora, where I heard the call to the diaconate in 2012, leading to ordination in 2018. I have had many ministerial opportunities in my diaconate ministry including preaching, baptizing, catechesis, grief ministry, ecumenical ministry, and many liturgical roles. My favorite diaconate ministry has been for family, friends, and coworkers. Some of these include funerals, burials, baptisms, and just being present to their darkest and brightest moments. "

Director of music 

Laura Lawless has been making music in the sacred setting since 2001 when she joined the music ministry at St. Thomas Aquinas.  Initially serving as a cantor and trumpet player, Laura’s role expanded to choir director and pianist/organist and ultimately led her to the position of Music Director for the linked parish community of St. Martin of Tours and St. Thomas Aquinas. Equipped with a BA in Music and a Bachelor’s of Music in Music Education from Buffalo State College, as well as a Master’s in Music Education from SUNY Fredonia, Laura has been teaching music in the school setting since 2003.
