How to Designate Your Gifts for Specific Ministries or Purposes

When you give to St. Dominic's, you can specify whether your gifts are for the regular offertory, general operating needs or for particular parish  programs.

Recurring Gifts: Your recurring gift is essentially your regular Sunday offering to support the Dominican pastoral staff and the year-round liturgical life of the parish.

One-Time Gifts for General Operations: Your extraordinary unrestricted gifts allow St. Dominic's to use your offering where it is needed most, such as for development of new programs, or for operations support  of our many parish ministries including community life events; children's, youth and adult faith formation programs; evangelization; and enhancement of current ministries.

Archbishop's Annual Appeal:  Through your support of the AAA, St. Dominic’s joins other local parishes in the Archdiocese of San Francisco to aid the work of the Church and to minister to those most in need.  Ministries and programs funded by the Appeal are usually beyond the scope of what any single parish could do alone. These important diocesan ministries provide help to the homeless and the hungry, scholarships for less advantaged children, provide for chaplains in hospitals, diaconate formation, assistance for the elderly, outreach to youth, young adults, and returning Catholics, and much more.

Church Maintenance & Preservation (aka "Saving God's House"):  Your gifts help restore, protect and ensure that the one-of-a-kind architectural gem -- our glorious church building -- our place of worship and the heart and soul of our parish community, will endure for generations to come.

Community Services (including the Lima Center):  St. Dominic's has served thousands of people in need, lightening the burdens each carries, especially in times of spiritual and material hardship.  The parish provides assistance with rent, utilities, food, and clothing, and offers special outreach programs during the holidays.

Music Ministry:  St. Dominic’s is recognized for its innovative worship services and renowned liturgical music program, which includes a regular schedule of concerts and other artistic presentations.

The Ministry or Parish Program of your choice:  You can also designate gifts for specific ministries in the parish, or for the purposes of your choice, including for example, our Livestreaming ministry, Children’s Faith Formation,  Young Adults, 30's/40's Group, senior services and many other programs. Just note your intentions on your check, donation envelope or e-offering submittal, or call the Parish Administrator to direct your gift. We’ll honor your intentions and use your funds as requested
