Mass of Thanksgiving
Rev. Mauricio Galvis celebrated his first Mass of Thanksgiving at Saint Dominic at the 10:00am Mass Sunday May 17. This was a unique event that has never been celebrated at Saint Dominic Parish before. As you may know, Mauricio was here for a pastoral year. A number of priests concelebrated and a reception was held after the mass in the Geraghty Parish Center.

Our media team members volunteer their time, week after week, to assist behind the scenes enhancing our liturgies. They coordinate their schedules to ensure that all masses are covered; they assist in audio/video recordings, running cameras and projectors, displaying images, videos and slideshows; setting up audio/video needs to the parish center to meet our overflow needs; capture, project and/or record special days for First Communions, Confirmation, RCIA, Memorial Mass, Doll Sunday, Advent, Lent, Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, Finance and Parish Council, Reconciliation Services, and many more. Between November and May they will have covered over 80 masses/activities.

Have you considered leaving a gift to your church in your will?
A gift in your will can have a huge impact on the life of your church. For many churches, regular giving is absorbed in ‘keeping the show on the road’ –paying the parish share, insuring and heating the building, repairing the roof and so on. A gift from your estate can help to ensure that the parish continues for generations to come.
Gifts in Wills are an important part of Christian giving. Many of us give regularly to the church each week or month from our income; why not from our estates too? It’s also a way to give thanks to God for the gifts of your life and lifetime.
When we genuinely see ourselves as God’s stewards, entrusted to use His gifts to us for the good of our families, the Church, the needy and in thanksgiving, we should also take Will-writing seriously – setting God’s affairs in order and stewarding them wisely to the end of our time on earth and beyond.
