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.
We'd love to keep in touch with you about the wonderful ministries and events happening at St. Dominic's. Sign up for one of our email lists below.

June 17, 2018: Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time - Pastor's Corner
Happy Father’s Day! In remembering and honoring our fathers, we recognize that the vocation to be a father is divine. In fact, this is how God describes His relationship with us. When the disciples ask Jesus to teach them to pray, Jesus says: “Abba, Father.” We know that we can always approach God as His children, confident in his care and guidance. We pray for our own fathers, living and deceased, that they may live their vocation with integrity and joy.
It is fitting on this day when we celebrate a Father’s vocation that I formally announce several special events in the coming week. First, this week the Dominicans of the Holy Name of Jesus will gather at St. Albert’s Priory for our Provincial Assembly. Every four years the entire province, which spans the Western United States from Alaska to Mexicali, come together to enjoy a time of fraternity and planning.
Second, our Assembly will be particularly memorable as it will culminate in the ordination of four Dominicans as priests. Two weeks ago, our own Fr. Robert Christian was ordained as the auxiliary Bishop of San Francisco. This coming Friday, June 22 at 2:00 p.m., Bishop Robert will ordain four Dominicans for whom he was recently Master of Students at St. Albert’s. It is the first time since the origin of our Province that a former brother will ordain the brethren. Further, this historic event will take place here at St. Dominic’s! Accordingly, I have the pleasure to cordially invite you to the Ordination of Christopher Wetzel, Bradley Thomas Elliott, Thomas Aquinas Pickett, and Pius Youn on Friday June 22 at 2:00 p.m. If you wish to attend the ordination or make a gift on their behalf visit: www.opwest.org/ordinations2018
Third, since Br. Brad did his residency year here during my first year as Pastor four years ago, he will celebrate a first Mass the next day Saturday June 23 at the 5:30 p.m. Vigil Mass. All are invited. His first assignment will be at St. Dominic’s in Benicia. Further, Br. Christopher Wetzel has spent this past year as a deacon in Benicia and I am delighted to announce that he will be joining the staff here in San Francisco as a Vicar with Fr. Isaiah. Br. Christopher’s first Mass will be at St. Dominic, Benicia on Sunday, June 24 at 9:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. and he has asked me to travel with him to preach those Masses.
Finally, this Sunday will be Fr. Augustine’s final weekend here as Vicar. He will be relocating to live at our Newman Center in Salt Lake City, UT. His new assignment includes ministry as a hospital chaplain at various medical centers. We give thanks for all the wonderful ways in which Fr. Augustine exercised his priestly ministry through his reflective teaching, caring spiritual direction and attention to the burgeoning Dominican laity. You will be missed, Fr. Augustine! We will have goodbye gathering during our Coffee Minute after the 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Masses. Come and wish Fr. Augustine well in his new adventure.
As we celebrate our Fathers this weekend, we ask God to sustain all of our dads in
their vocation. We give thanks for all the ways our heavenly Father continues to give us our daily bread and leads us into His blessings. ~ Fr. Michael
