Church_StDomsFrontOur Church

St. Dominic’s Rectory was built in 1956 and the old Seminary dormitory was torn down. In March of 1961, St. Dominic’s Parochial School was opened on the corner of 5th and East J Streets. This school is still in operation today. A committed community of parents, teachers, staff, and church congregation support its development. Together, St. Dominic’s Church and School provide a strong spiritual and academic presence in a growing Benicia.

Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament


Perpetual Adoration ensures the 24-hour continuous adoration of our Lord Jesus Christ who is truly present body, blood, soul, and divinity in the Holy Eucharist. Parishioners are encouraged to have a regular scheduled weekly hour of adoration. All parishioners are invited to stop in unannounced for adoration during the daytime hours.

Tree of Life Garden of Hopegardenofhope

The Garden of Hope is intended to offer a quiet place to reflect on the hope and healing that flows from the infinite love of our Lord. The garden is located at the northwest corner of the church, adjacent to the schoolyard, in a shaded area of the property. The design is centered around a memorial wall and water feature surrounded by a series of raised planters which hold flowers, symbolizing the beauty of life. The memorial wall in the garden is a visible sign that offers hope and healing for hearts broken by abortion or miscarriage. If you would like to have a leaf dedicated of a deceased infant please call the office. This beautiful sacramental garden provides us all the opportunity to come and sit among the flowers and fountains and reflect on God’s love and peace.
