THE PADRE'S PORTION 

                                                                                                Brothers and Sisters; A little while back, Deacon Matt spoke in his homily about the upcoming total solar eclipse that will be happening on August 21st ! Well, as kind of a surprise fact to me, I discovered that the Saint that I wish to write about today is the patron saint of Astronomers. Saint Dominic had his Feast Day on August 8th. It is strange that the founder of an Order can sometimes be a little unknown among the Faithful. [Fortunately, St. Francis of Assisi never suffered that problem.] Both Dominic and Francis lived about the same time in history. St. Dominic was the Founder of the Order of Preachers (OP) – still don’t know who he was? Well, the Order of Preachers is more known today by their name of Dominicans. They are known for their white cassocks. Dominicans are also known for being very well educated. Do not be surprised to find out that your favorite Dominican priest has earned a Ph.D. Dominicans work hard to preach the Word of God to us. They work very hard to understand what they preach. Thomas Aquinas is the most famous Dominican. If you know a Dominican, pray for them!                                                                               Fr. David Tate                                                                                  Parish Administrator
