Your generosity makes a difference!
So many people give so very generously to make St. Dominic's one of the most vibrant and vigorous parishes in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our liturgies, ministries, formation programs and events bring long-time church members, returning Catholics, and new converts together to build community, encourage spiritual growth, and extend support to neighbors in need. Your support allows St. Dominic's to radiate the joy of the Gospel and continue our mission of reaching out to others.

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 parish's regular offertory, general operating needs or for particular programs.
Recurring Gifts: Your 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 (whether one-time or recurring) allow St. Dominic's to use your offering where it is needed most: to continue as a campus of lifelong faith formation and evangelization; for general operations support to enable our many parish ministries including our community life programs; children's, youth and adult faith formation programs; evangelization; and enhancement of these important ministries.
Archbishop's Annual Appeal: Through your support of the Archbishop's Annual Appeal, St. Dominic’s joins with 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, many of which are well beyond the scope of what any single parish could do alone, provide help for the homeless and the hungry, scholarships for less advantaged children, chaplains in hospitals, diaconate formation, assistance for the elderly, outreach to youth, young adults, and returning Catholics, and much more.
Church Maintenance & Preservation (Saving God's House): Your gift will help restore, protect and insure that the one-of-a-kind architectural gem -- our glorious church building -- which serves as our place of worship, as well as, 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 a special outreach program during the holidays.
Music Ministry: St. Dominic’s is recognized for its innovative worship services and 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 and many other programs. Just note your intentions on your check, donation envelope or e-offering, or call the Parish Administrator to direct your gift. We’ll honor your intentions and use your funds as requested
