Welcome
 
St. Dominic’s is a Catholic parish inspired by the Dominican spirituality igniting the faith for the salvation of souls.
 
For almost 160 years, St. Dominic’s has maintained a strong spiritual and 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.
 
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

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.

   It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation.
 
St. Dominic’s members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as prayer, serving at Mass, bible study, helping serve donuts and coffee after Mass,
support the grieving, and feeding those financially strained in Benicia.
