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.

January 21, 2018: Third Sunday in Ordinary Time - Pastor’s Corner
After John had been arrested, Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” As he passed by the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting their nets into the sea; they were fishermen. Jesus said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Then they abandoned their nets and followed him. He walked along a little farther and saw James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They too were in a boat mending their nets. Then he called them. So they left their father Zebedee in the boat along with the hired men and followed him. (Mark 1:14-20)
Statistics tell us that three weeks into the new year is a crucial moment for how we approach the rest of 2018. For those who have made resolutions with regard to eating healthy, exercising, learning a new skill or some other project of self-improvement, this is the pivotal time which determines whether we succeed or fail. If we’ve developed good habits in these first days of January, then our chances of continuing are notably strong. If not, then we are tempted to abandon our resolutions to the dustbin of failed plans and continue with the status quo.
In the Gospel this weekend, Jesus announces: “This is the time of fulfilment. The Kingdom of God is at hand.” This announcement is at the heart of Jesus’ preaching. It is his statement of mission. Even for those who were waiting for the Messiah, it must have seemed incredible that the prophecy of the Christ would be fulfilled in the person of a Jewish carpenter from Nazareth. Yet, this is precisely God’s plan. Jesus’ revelation and preaching are so unexpected that the majority of his early teaching stresses the urgency of his message: Now is the time when God comes to save his people. When Jesus calls Simon and Andrew, he does not call them to part time service, but to leave all behind and follow him. Jesus’ call never waits for those who would delay and procrastinate. There is a fundamental urgency that following Jesus necessitates.
As we enter into this New Year, Jesus invites us to consider how we might respond to his call to follow him more nearly. Whether or not we’ve made resolutions for this year, whether or not we’ve been successful or stumbled, now is the time to respond to Christ’s call to leave behind whatever keeps us from loving God and neighbor. The Good News can transform our lives, if we respond. Now is time!
