Welcome


Father Michael Hurley, OPIn the Gospel of John, Jesus summarizes his life’s mission: “I have come that you might have life and have it more fully.” The life that Jesus promises is ours when we are connected together as a community. So being a parishioner is not just a matter of filling out a registration form, but about joining a spiritual family.

I am delighted that you have come to our website. St. Dominic’s and I invite you to enter fully into the life and blessings of our family. The best way to experience the joys of our parish is to get involved! In a parish as diverse and dynamic as ours, there is something for everyone.

This is a special time for our Dominican family because we're entering a jubilee year to mark the 800th anniversary since the founding of the Dominican Order in 2016. We invite you to join our celebration.

- Fr. Michael Hurley, O.P., Pastor

Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time - February 7, 2016

Dear Parishioners of St. Dominic's Church,

It is a great joy to return to St. Dominic's - now as a Dominican Priest!  St. Dominic's parish played a big role in my vocational discernment.  I first came to St. Dominic's as a college freshman at Santa Clara University in the fall of 1994.  I began to sing in the 11:30 a.m. choir and eventually became assistant organist.  During that time, I got to know the Dominican friars and began to pray with them and listen to their great homilies.  The beauty of St. Dominic's church building and the glorious sacred music that filled it led me deeper in my own walk with God.  I entered the Dominican order in the year 2000 and was ordained to the Priesthood and celebrated my first Mass at St. Dominic's in May 2008.

Most of my Priesthood has been spent ministering to high school and college age students.  For two years I served as a chaplain at the University of Arizona in Tucson. From 2010-2015 I was in residence at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington DC where I was working on a doctorate in Sacred Music at the Catholic University of America.  While I was there I was director of our Dominican Schola Cantorum - an all male choir composed of Dominican friars.  I was also assistant conductor for the Catholic University Chamber Choir and did a lot of ministry as well as conducting really talented, hard working, and faithful Catholic students.

In January of 2016 I began my new positions as Professor and Director of Music at St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park.  I also began my new position as Director of the Shrine of St. Jude and residency at St. Dominic's Priory.

Many times when I was an undergraduate and discerning, I found myself at the feet of St. Jude at our glorious St. Dominic's Church.  Often I entrusted myself and my family and friends to his intercession.

Since that time devotion at the Shrine has grown.  Tens of thousands of pilgrims come to the Shrine each year, searching for God's help through the intercession of St. Jude.

Often times, people come to St. Jude with little hope. Their lives have been shattered or some great tragedy has occurred. They may not even really go to Church on a regular basis. However, their faith in God's help is ALIVE!!!  God is working in them!!!

It is my great hope that this Shrine will become a means of the new evangelization - or the re-evangelization of our great state of California.  It is my prayer that our Shrine will serve as a light leading all who seek it to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ - to make Him the center of our lives.

I am also honored to be preaching the Lourdes Novena this February.  Lourdes is a great shrine in France where there are constant instances of healings due to Our Lord's power working through Our Lady's intercession.  The theme I am preaching on is healing - especially through the sacraments. Sometimes God permits physical healing in our lives. However, he will always give us the Grace for Spiritual Healing if we allow him to work in us!

As we move into the season of Lent in this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, let us all avail ourselves of the full extent of the healing of the Divine Mercy - especially in the great sacrament of Confession (Penance or Reconciliation).

If it has been awhile since your last confession, what better way to deepen your relationship with God than by going back this year?  Ask the Priest to help you too if you are worried that you don't know what to say.

Christ is waiting for an encounter with us with His great healing offer of MERCY!  Let us deepen our spiritual lives with this great gift - and ask all of our friends, those on earth and those in heaven to pray for us!!!

St. Jude - pray for us - and for all who invoke thy name!
