Our Parish School of Religion (PSR) will begin in just a few weeks, and Liz Woconish and her team of volunteers are anxiously preparing to welcome more than 400 children to our Sunday school program. Classes are held for children from Pre-K to grade 6, with a variety of programs to serve the spiritual needs of our young people. For more information or to register your child, please call the rectory office or check out the parish website. Thanks!
Ken and Ann Redig were parishioners from the 1950s through the 1980s and raised their family of six children at St. Dominic. Although they are both deceased, their family recently established the Kenneth and Ann Redig Sanctuary Fund as part of our larger St. Dominic Endowment Fund. Interest from this unique family fund will be used to maintain and purchase altar linens, candles, liturgical books, altar bread and wine, and all of those items that help beautify our church. Their daughter, Chris Ruddock, is still a member of the parish, and we are grateful to her for initiating this gift. Our parish endowment has investments of more than $2 million, allowing us to serve the community in so many ways. If you would be interested in establishing a family or memorial fund, please feel free to contact me at the rectory.
Our next relational trip to El Salvador will be November 12th-16th, and I will be leading the group. This is an adult-focused trip and will include visits to Santo Domingo School, the farm, the Medical Clinic and numerous homes in and around Chiltiupan. Our hope is to expose St. Dominic parishioners to the everyday life of Salvadorans and to share faith and friendship between our communities. We purposefully choose to do no physical labor (painting, building, etc.) on these trips as there is no shortage of laborers in El Salvador, and we would be taking away valuable jobs if we did. The only requirement for a parishioner from St. Dominic is a willingness to open your heart to a different culture and to deepen your understanding of the gospel in the midst of the poverty of the developing world. Three preparation meetings help build a foundation of understanding for the trip so that our visit is not simply “religious tourism” but rather a faith journey. If you would like more information about the trip, please contact Jodie Bowers or me and we would be glad to give you more details.
