St. Dominic Savio Parish was founded in 1956.

Created out of four existing parishes, St. Dominic Savio was designed to be a parish for the neighborhood community.

Our parishioners are living examples of true Christian love. They are supportive of each other, reach out to each other and work together to fulfill the gospel mandate of Jesus Christ.

As Thanksgiving Day approaches, I want to encourage everyone to join us that [...]

Remember Olive Dwyer and St. Augustine on Prayer and Discernment

November 4th, 2017|0 Comments

The late Olive Dwyer, a colorful personality and beloved parishioner, made a generous bequest to St. Dominic Savio as part of her estate planning. Please remember her in your prayers.

When our prayers go unanswered, St. Augustine wisely taught: “When we are in affliction, we do not know what is right to pray for; yet, because it is difficult, troublesome and against the grain for us, weak as we [...]
