Dear St. Dominic Family,
It has come to our attention that we have had 2 parishioners test positive for COVID 19 along
with some of their family members. We have been advised that these parishioners have not attended
mass at St. Dominic in the last 3 weeks.
We are in the process of learning more about the situation and will keep our St. Dominic community informed as information becomes available.
We want to emphasize to practice social distancing, stay home and only go out if it is absolutely necessary.
We appreciate your continuous prayers for our Parish, parishioners, St. Dominic community and all those infected and affected by COVID 19 virus.
Father Mike Horan and Father Abel Ruiz
