St. Dominic’s Church is a vibrant, diverse Dominican parish that serves approximately 2000 households in the Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.
The director will be responsible for the evangelization and faith formation of children and youth (from birth through early teen years) and their parents, including implementing and evaluating programs, developing curricula within Church teaching and diocesan guidelines, scheduling classes and events, and training and coordinating volunteers. A successful candidate will passionately share in our Dominican parish’s mission “to radiate the joy of the Gospel in the heart of the City.”
Each year men and women embark on an exploration of the Catholic faith. Some are deciding if they are called into the Catholic Church; others have been Catholic all their lives and are now interested in discovering what this really means. Together we witness to the fact that our search for God is a lifelong journey, a journey on which we make the most progress when we walk it with others and with intention.
We are a community of single and married Catholic adults in our 20s and 30s who come together to grow in faith and friendship through edification, fellowship, spirituality, and service. We've been around since 1989 and currently have over 400 active young adults in our community...not counting you once you come and check us out.More Information
The various ministries of St. Dominic's parish provide you with a wide variety of ways of connecting with the community. Through these ministries you can learn and grow as an individual, meet others who share your values, and reach out to serve the larger parish and city. We hope there's something for everyone here. If not, join us in creating future ministries.Administration Adult Formation Children Family Hospitality Justice Liturgical Music Outreach Prayer Peer Service Spiritual Life Welcome Youth

Fr. Augustine was born in Huntington Beach into a non-Catholic household. He entered Thomas Aquinas College in 1995 and saw the beauty of the Catholic faith in his studies and experienced the Christian witness there. He was baptized in 1997 and after discernment, entered the Dominican Order in the Jubilee Year 2000. He was ordained in 2008 after getting his Masters in Divinity and has served in Eugene, Oregon as a chaplain at the University of Oregon and in Anchorage, Alaska at the Cathedral and in St. Raymond in Menlo Park. He is currently the Promoter of the Holy Name Society in the Western Dominican Province since January 2015 and now is parochial vicar here at St. Dominic’s. Fr. Augustine went on a tour of the lands of St. Dominic and looks forward to speaking about the Dominican Order in the 800th Jubilee Year of the foundation of the Dominican Order. He enjoys walking around town and seeing the local sights, museums and parks. Fr. Augustine enjoys teaching theology and history. He is also the house librarian and spends some time organizing the library at the priory.
Enough about me.
Wednesday July 27th is the memorial of Bl. Robert Nutter. While there are many and famous martyrs during the English Reformation, Dominicans were rarely among them. "Robert Nutter was born at Burnley, Lancashire. He entered Brasenose College, Oxford in 1564 or 1565, and, with his brother John Nutter, also a Catholic martyr, became a student of the English College, Rheims. He was ordained at Soissons, on 21 December 1581 along with Venerable William Dean and George Haydock. Returning to England, he was committed to the Tower of London, along with his brother, also a priest, on 2 February 1584. He remained in the pit forty-seven days, wearing irons for forty-three days, and twice was subjected to the tortures of "the scavenger's daughter". On 10 November 1584, he was again consigned to the pit. Robert witnessed his older brother’s execution before being released. The authorities hoped that he might inadvertently lead them to Catholic safe houses. He was again arrested and transported to France on 21 January 1585, with twenty other priests and one layman, aboard the Mary Martin of Colchester, from Tower Wharf. Landing at Boulogne, France, 2 February, he revisited Rome in July, but, returned then to England as escort to newly ordained priests. When the party was brought ashore at Gravesend, Nutter gave his name as Rowley, but was recognized and on 30 November 1585 again committed to prison in London, this time to Newgate Prison. In 1587 he was removed to the Marshalsea Prison, and thence, in 1590, was sent to Wisbech Castle. While in prison he joined the Dominicans. On 10 March 1600, the keeper having left the gate unlocked, Nutter and his companions made their escape. Some were never recaptured, but those who headed south were taken, and Nutter was sent to Lancaster, where he was executed on 26 July, 1600. At his beatification Pope St. John Paul II in 1987 said, “He was a man of a strong body but of a stronger soul, who rather despised and conquered death.” - Wikipedia
