Our School Namesake: St. Dominic
Our school is named after St. Dominic. Dominic Savio was born in Italy in 1842. Dominic became a student of John Bosco in a home for neglected boys. One of the objectives of the home was to find candidates for the priesthood, a call Dominic felt as a young man.
Although he was only a boy, Dominic lived a very full life dedicated to helping others. He was known for his cheerfulness, friendliness, and good advice. At an early age, Dominic organized a group of people called the Company of the Immaculate Conception to help John Bosco. Dominic’s group was very poor, but they worked tirelessly to help make John Bosco’s work a success. At the age of fifteen, Dominic developed tuberculosis, and died.
During his life, Dominic wrote letters to his friends about his joy in helping poor and homeless children. He described how he and his group carried out their duties in a positive manner, and always tried to do their best. Sharing his joy with others was a major focus in Dominic’s young life.
Pope John XXIII said that Dominic Savio has a message for everyone. It applies equally to children, young people and adults. It is a message of goodness and simplicity of life.
Saint Dominic is a model for young people who want to help others.
