Dennis Lee McCoy was born September 3, 1940 in Mitchell, South Dakota to Ronald and Marie (Sullivan) McCoy. He graduated from Woonsocket High School in 1958 and went on to Mankato State the following year. In 1959, he started working at the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, the daily newspaper in Sioux Falls, where he met his future bride, Dorothy McDonald. The couple was united in marriage on June 17, 1961 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
In 1961, they moved to Minnesota and operated the Brooten Review. Along with his brothers, Dennis started the Dairyland Peach in 1967. Together, they ran the Dairyland Peach until the early 1980′s. In 1981, he founded the Neumann Press, a classic Catholic book publishing company.
He was a former member of Our Lady of the Angels Catholic Church in Sauk Centre. His faith was very important to him. Dennis founded the Central Minnesota Chapter of Una Voce, a group dedicated to the promotion and support of the traditional Latin Mass, in union with Rome.

Una Voce Southern Las Vegas is pleased to announce that effective immediately, there will be a weekly Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form celebrated at St. Bridget Roman Catholic Church, 220 North 14th Street, Las Vegas, NV.
The Mass wil be celebrated by priests of the diocese of Las Vegas. Mass time is Saturday evening at 7:00 PM; this Mass will satisfy your Sunday obligation.
For the past three years, Las Vegas has had a monthly Mass. The parish administrator (Father Jesse Cortes) has been very supportive of the Traditional Latin Mass, and has been the celebrant many times. Representatives of Una Voce Southern Nevada petitioned Father for weekly Mass and he accepted our request.
We are currently seeking priests in good standing to also help celebrate the Mass.

Michael Hey was four years old when the Roman Catholic Church convened the Second Vatican Council. So you can hardly describe his love for western Christianity’s traditional Latin liturgy and music as a die-hard’s nostalgia for the past.
And you can’t say it about the choir he directs every Sunday at Our Mother of Perpetual Help Oratory in Santa Clara, either. The famous 1962-1965 gathering of leaders of the Roman Catholic Church – the world’s largest single Christian body – was long over by the time most of Hey’s singers were born. Arguably, these days the reactionaries are their tambourine-toting, Birkenstock-shod, stuck-in-the-70s baby boomer parents.
The recently retired Cisco engineer began singing Gregorian chant with Palo Alto’s St. Ann Choir (www.stannchoir.org) and its director, Stanford professor and early music titan Dr. William Mahrt, at Our Lady of Peace. The Santa Clara parish celebrated a traditional Latin mass on Saturday evening for many years.
When the traditionalist Oratory of Our Mother of Perpetual Help (www.institute-christ-king.org/santaclara) acquired the historic Elim church on Homestead Road, Santa Clara’s Latin mass made its home there and the choir brought its talents to the chapel’s 9:30 a.m. liturgy. The Oratory now celebrates four Latin masses every Sunday.
With support over the years from St. Ann choir member David Webb, the Oratory’s choir is now a capable group of about a dozen with a solid repertory of Gregorian chant and medieval and Renaissance polyphony.
“These young people love good music and they see the importance of worshipping in a reverent way,” explains Hey. “There are now there are so many resources available online that there’s no excuse for not doing this music.”
*”Mass” is the principal worship service of the Roman Catholic Church. The name derives from the final words of the liturgy: Ite missa est, deo gratias.
