Recollections from the summer of 2000 continued! 

The year before I arrived, the parish conducted listening sessions in which many parishioners presented their thoughts and ideas on what they thought was needed by the parish community.  Here were their answers to this question: “What is our greatest challenge as a parish?”  Having a spiritual, Christ centered focus!  Becoming a true faith community!  Getting more people involved in the parish and training them in lay ministry!  Keeping the school open with high standards!  Increasing the financial support and stability of the parish.  Build a parish center for offices and meetings and socials, a gathering space for church, and a multi-purpose practice gym (not enough practice time for the many basketball and volleyball teams!)  Get the teens involved.  Adult education and spiritual formation programs.  Outreach to the poor and needy in the community.  Ministry to seniors!  These were the parish concerns.

We formed task forces to address these various issues.  I was encouraged that the number one priority was a Christ centered and spirituality focused parish!  The reputation of St. Dominic’s was that it was “an athletic program with a parish attached.”  Here is how we addressed this number one priority.  1. We began the program, “Christ Renews His Parish,” a year after I arrived.  I had launched this program for fifty-five parishes in the archdiocese, when I was working with Joseph Bernardin in the seventies and eighties.  Many people have witnessed to how this program has anchored their spiritual lives and energized their ministry.  Some folks still meet for prayer and shared life.  2. We started Eucharistic Adoration on Wednesdays.  3. All these years, Fr. Chris and I have focused our homilies on connecting the Word of God and people’s lives.  4. Prayer groups are meeting.  5. The Goldenaires conduct days of recollection.  6. A scripture reflection group meets on Thursday evenings to reflect on the upcoming Sunday scriptures.  7. Before the Covid crisis, Fr. Chris and I had seventy-five people showing up on Tuesday nights for bible study!  I continue to be inspired by the deep faith of St. Dominic parishioners!
