Where Can I Serve Today?

 
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of St. Dominic’s Catholic Church is our mission to serve. 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 offering donuts after Mass, to preparing the fundraising and development, and feeding the poor in Benicia.
 
Ushers
The usher team at St. Dominic’s fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, handing out bulletins, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life. We are currently looking for additional ushers to assist at Mass.

 

Adoration

There are always hours available to sit in adoration. Check the weekly bulletin for open time slots or come any time and offer a prayer for the Parish.
Please call Joji Holzwarth at 707-704-8779 or Shirley Cortez at 707-208-2004 to help or simply to receive more information about our Adoration Chapel and schedule.

 

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of St. Dominic’s. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for evangelization purposes. All of our weekly homilies are uploaded to our website in audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication. If you’d like to help with video development, graphic design, or writing blog articles contact Lori Telepak at 707-335-4671.

 

Meals Ministry
Meals Ministry cooks an occasional dinner for members of the parish that are going through cancer treatment, major surgery, a severe illness or some other event in their life and would appreciate a home cooked meal. Each person is only asked to cook a couple of times a year. This is a great ministry for new members of the parish and those who like to cook but are unable to pursue other volunteer opportunities in the parish. The families we cook for are usually not large and mostly seniors.
 

Knitting Angels for Hospice Patients

During the Christmas season, this enriching ministry knits scarves, hats, shawls and blankets for hospice patients.
