Ministry of Praise

So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Do you have space in your heart to send healing thoughts and prayers to specific members of the St. Dominic community? Can you spend quiet time in asking God to uplift another member of our parish community? Members pray one hour every week for specific members of the St. Dominic community. You will receive a quarterly newsletter by mail or via email about people who have requested prayers in our community. This is a great way to be involved from home!

Meal Ministry

If you lavish your food on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; Then your light shall rise in the darkness, and your gloom shall become like midday;” Isaiah 58:10       

Nourishment for the soul is not enough! Literally feeding those in need, we too can uplift ourselves. Volunteers prepare and deliver meals to individuals and families going through stressful situations, such as hospitalization/serious illness, death or birth/adoption. Please consider becoming a volunteer on this list, your time is vital to helping other human beings.

Homebound Visits

A friend is a friend at all times, and a brother is born for the time of adversity.” Proverbs 17:17 

We are united in one body and one Spirit. So when one of us is suffering, we all are affected. Volunteers bring the Eucharist to parishioners who are unable to attend Mass due to hospitalizations, recovery from surgery/illness or the inability to leave home. Visit times and frequency are up to you. Volunteer teams also visit nursing homes once a month to bring companionship and to help connect those through the Eucharist. We are always looking for the next member to be ready to listen when called.

Support for Caregivers Group

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leads me; he restores my soul. He guides me along right paths for the sake of his name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; You set a table before me in front of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life; I will dwell in the house of the Lord for endless days.” Psalm 23 

What is the first action of preparation airlines advise in case of emergency? Put on your own mask first before assisting others. Sometimes, we put so much energy into caring for others, we neglect ourselves especially in this day, and age of instant gratification and wearing our best face out in society. So, if you are feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, living in despair and caged by fear, join us in fellowship to connect and fill your cup.  Group members gather monthly to pray and support each other as they navigate their role as caregivers. Come as you are and rest a moment as we unite in God’s love.

Bereavement Support Group

“That this is God, our God for ever and ever. He will lead us until death.”  Psalm 48:15 

Death is like a thief in the night: there is the grief of loss of someone we once cared for and loved, but also the burden to carry on when a piece of our soul feels like it’s been stolen.  Sometimes, it takes a lot of courage to find the strength to just whisper through life after loss.  Please join us for Circle of Hope: an eight week summer program to come together to share memories of those who passed. Set aside your fears and share your feelings and as you give to others, God holds and honors us in the darkest of nights.
