Our Mission

Saint Dominic Catholic Church strives to live out the gospel message as missionary disciples. Giving God all the glory, until we’re a parish family fully alive in Christ, setting the world ablaze.

Set ablaze by God’s generous love, we strive daily to encounter Christ, form missionary disciples, and evangelize others, all through the power of the Holy Spirit.

What We Believe

The Apostles’ Creed: I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell; on  the third day he rose again from  the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty; from there he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,  the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Get Connected

Saint Dominic Catholic Church is a missionary discipleship focused parish. Led by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are set ablaze by God’s generous love.

Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.

Pope Francis

Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.

Saint Catherine of Siena

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20
