Welcome to St. Dominic Savio!

Our community is centered on the Eucharist, and we strive to live and share the Good News and grow in discipleship with the Lord. Our Pastoral Priorities 2024-2027 are Worship, Witness, and Service.

A parish is a community of believers and a spiritual family that is supportive and loving. It can be a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith in action, and to use our gifts of time and talent as disciples of Christ. We look forward to answering any questions you may have. In the meantime, please look through the resources we’ve made available on these pages, or talk to any of us.

The Children’s Liturgy Ministry

The Children’s Liturgy Ministry is a wonderful opportunity for children aged 5-12 years old to participate more fully during Mass and gain a better understanding of how Jesus is their lifelong friend.

This ministry is in urgent need of volunteers, particularly at the Saturday 5 pm Masses and the 11:30 am Mass on Sundays. It begins the weekend of October 14-15 when volunteers are available.

We are blessed to have Paige oversee this ministry and organize all materials for the children. 

Volunteers simply read the children’s version of the Gospel and lead a small activity. These will be provided for you at each Mass. Choose the Masses you can help with. Teens aged 13 and older are also welcome to help. Please consider helping the children in our parish for 15 minutes or so during mass by contacting the parish office.

This is a simple and highly rewarding ministry. 

RCIA

Congratulations to our RCIA candidates – Brynn, Solantine, Christopher, and Sofia. They received their sacraments at the Easter Vigil –  March 30, 2024. Please pray for them.
