In 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
