Archbishop's Catholic AppealOur Church needs the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal (ACA) more than ever this year. Ministries are experiencing increased demand. Parishes have had to find new and creative ways to connect and minister to their parishioners without the benefit of public masses and regular offertory.
We are one Church and we are all in this together. To provide support during this pandemic, the first $1 million raised by the Appeal will go directly to parishes.

 

Attending Mass at the Church in May

Who Can Attend Masses

We encourage those who are sick, elderly, or infirm to stay home. Only those willing to wear a mask for the duration of the Mass (except for communion) can enter the church. Once you have attended Sunday Mass, please be kind and do not sign up for a month (this frequency may change). The 9:30AM Mass is expected to be the most crowded, so please consider coming to the 4PM, 7:30AM or weekday Mass. We will also have taped or live-streamed Masses for those who cannot attend.

How Do I Sign Up for Mass

We have purchased a service that will help us with planning called Sign Up Genius. Use the link button below to sign up for Mass.  Every week there will be a new sheet for you to use.

You must provide your name, email address, and the number of people who are attending. We have identified safe seating areas. Each area can seat an individual or family. And the total number of attendees per mass will be limited to 60 or less.

Procedures for Safely Attending Mass

Before you sign up,  make sure you understand the procedures…

There will be only two entry points into the church: the south entry and the north entry. The main church doors will be locked. You will enter and leave through these doors only.

  • You must ware a mas or face covering while in the (children under the age of 3 are exempted)
  • Please sanitize your hands after entering the church.
  • Avoid touching anything you do not need to touch.
  • Ushers will seat you.  Please follow the usher to a place set up for you. FAMILIES WHO LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSE CAN SIT TOGETHER AND ONLY COUNT AS ONE PERSON for the purpose of the count! We may have a special section for families.
  • Collection baskets will be placed by the doors and at the foot of the altar. They will NOT be passed from person to person at Offertory.
    You can place your contribution in the basket when it’s at the foot of the altar during Offertory, or when you enter or leave the church. .
  • Communion will be distributed after mass.
    This permits minister(s) to wear masks while distributing communion. Come up to communion with your mask or face covering on. NO COMMUNION IS PERMITTED ON THE TONGUE at this time! This is a firm Archdiocesan rule. As you approach for communion, stand on the spots taped on the ground for social distancing. When you extend your hand to receive, allow the host to be placed in the palm of your hand, step aside, use the other hand to pull down your mask or face covering and reverently commune.
  • We ask that you leave the church immediately after receiving communion, paying careful attention to maintain proper distance at the door.
  • Sanitize your hands as you leave, and minimize contact with the doors.

Our Story

St. Dominic Catholic Church is dedicated, through powerful preaching, the Sacraments, and our worship of God, to help you find healing and to chase after holiness. Through our community, we strengthen those in need and welcome those who are lost and broken. And through our ministry both in our parish and in our community, we grow as servant leaders and follow Christ’s own example of service to the poor and the stranger. Together, through the encouragement of the Holy Spirit, we can change the world and help to bring the Kingdom of Heaven one step closer.

Christ has called you to be the light of the world. Together we can and will shine with God’s own light. Become part of our story. Read more about what makes St. Dominic different than other parishes.

What to Expect

When you enter St. Dominic’s you can expect to be welcomed into not just a community, but a beautiful church family centered on Jesus Christ and the healing He brings through the Sacraments and through each of us. As Dominicans providing powerful and relevant preaching is our focus in life, but hospitality is a close second!

As Catholics, the center and summit of our Faith and of our Sunday Worship is the Eucharist which truly becomes the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ up on the altar.

But that doesn’t mean our fellow Christian brothers and sisters are not welcome, quite the opposite actually. If you do not wish to receive Communion, or are simple unsure what it means for you, you may still come up and receive a blessing and prayer.

We are a parish open to everyone and if you wish to join this church family for a single Sunday or as a regular parishioner we are more than happy to have you. Your presence is a grace to us.

Parking

There is parking lot on both the North and South sides of the church as well as street parking.
