For almost 160 years, St. Dominic’s has maintained a strong spiritual ans academic presence in the once-state-capital town Benicia, California.
Our purpose is to carry out the mission of Jesus Christ by coordinating, encouraging and promoting apostolic activities within the Parish and the Universal Church.
Our pastoral Council provides leadership, direction and unity in the spiritual development of the parish.
We invite you to join our parish family and community, and to join one or more of our many ministries for the whole family. So together, we can serve God and his people.

volunteer group hands together

To be a Volunteer, it takes…

    • Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others.
    • Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own.
    • Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel.
    • Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better.
    • Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might.
    • Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through.
St. Dominic’s volunteers show these qualities and so much more, we encourage you to join us. If you’d like to find ways to get more involved in our Parish contact the office and let us help discern where your talents are needed.
