Directing Your Gifts
When you give to Saint Dominic Church, you can specify whether your gifts are for the parish's general operating needs or for particular programs.
Sunday Collection: Your gift enables St. Dominic's to fulfill its vision to be a center of evangelization and lifelong faith formation and a hub of service to the Eagle Rock community. Gifts for general operations support our many parish ministries, including liturgies, adult and youth formation programs, and outreach activities, and help the parish enhance and expand these important ministries.
School Tuition Assistance: A gift here allows the parish to subsidize some families who cannot afford to pay the full tuition to our excellent elementary school. We want to provide to as many children as possible a quality education in an environment that promotes a living faith in Jesus Christ.
Community Center Fund: We are repairing the second floor of our community center and beginning a capital campaign to renovate and update the rest of the building, including adding an elevator to allow access to both floors for all our parishioners. The community center will be a location for lectures, formation programs, day retreats, multi-media presentations, concerts, meetings and parish community-building events.
Building Maintenance Fund: Your gift will help us be good stewards of the many buildings that past generations have left to us, make sure they can serve the Catholic community of Eagle Rock for generations to come.
St. Vincent de Paul: St. Dominic's has served thousands of people in need, lightening the burdens each carries, especially in times of spiritual and material hardship. The parish provides assistance with rent, utilities, food, and clothing, and offers a bag lunch on weekdays and a nutritious hot meal on Friday evenings to the poor and elderly in our area.
