We are just beginning our faith formation and Sacramental Preparation classes for children and adults of all ages, for those who are Catholic and those who are thinking about becoming Catholic or just want to know more. Whether you come in search of wisdom for yourself or your children, or you even desire to share with others of the gifts that you have received, these are wonderful
For the last 103 years, one of our primary missions is our parish school. This year, 441 students have been entrusted to our care. It is a sacred task, to share with them the knowledge of the natural world and the wisdom of Heaven.
But beyond this, each and every day, we have the opportunity to share with those we meet the Light of Truth, and indeed, we must—with all charity, in the Truth as given to us by God and continually taught by the Church.
St. Dominic’s life spanned the 12th and 13th centuries. He spent six years studying theology and four the arts before entering into monastic life. Accompanying his bishop on a state matter, they eventually found themselves in Rome, asking for permission to undertake a new mission—the
conversion on unbelievers, to share with them the message of salvation. Pope Innocent III instead sent them to Southern France, at that time caught up in heresy which denied the dignity of the human person of the entire material world as evil. Good people had been led astray, and Dominic undertook the challenge to share with them the message of the Truth, of the goodness of God’s
Creation and the Resurrection of the Dead. Dominic traveled throughout the region, and through his preaching was able to help a great many come back to the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Church which He founded. Dominic eventually founded a religious order to continue this work in southern France and beyond.
