School Board

St. Dominic School instituted a Board of Specified Jurisdiction to help navigate the school’s success in a critically changing and increasingly competitive marketplace.

The Board’s goal is to focus on school sustainability with individual members lending specific professional expertise to help address specific issues, challenges and goals facing the school. The Board will form committees to provide direction and decision-making in the areas of financial management, marketing and enrollment, fundraising and accountability. A committee to focus on strategic planning will be developed as the Board progresses.

Responsibility for day-to-day operation of the school, including curriculum, student and parent issues and oversight of faculty and staff will remain with the school’s current administration.

The St. Paul and Minneapolis Archdiocese partnered with the Healey Education Foundation through its signature initiative. The Healey Education Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to sustain and grow Catholic schools by “helping schools help themselves.” The foundation provides board training and ongoing support to make the board as effective as possible.

The Board currently has ten members, with a typical term for a board member being three years.

Chairman of the Board
Northfield Hospitals
Vice President - Central Business Unit, Rosen’s, Inc.

I am a native of Wells, MN where I attended St Casimir’s Catholic School through 8th grade and graduated from Wells-Easton High School. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Minnesota and has spent most of his career in the agricultural industry. Currently, I am the Vice President, Central Business Unit for Rosen’s Incorporated, an agricultural input distribution company. Faith and family are the two most important aspects of my life. I have lived in Northfield with my wife Carolyn since 1997. Our daughter Nicole attended St. Dominic School through 8th grade and is currently a Junior at Northfield High School.

Jessica Raines, Board Secretary
Pharmacist at M Health Fairview
I graduated from St. Dominic Catholic School in 2007 and have seen the direct impact that a St. Dominic Catholic education can have on one’s life. St. Dominic Catholic School provided me the knowledge and skills that allowed me to be successful all the way from high school to pharmacy school. It provided me with lifelong friendships. It most importantly helped me develop my Catholic faith, which has allowed me to become a better pharmacist and person. My goal as a board member is to help St. Dominic Catholic School continue to be successful and reconnect alumni back with the school. I’m currently a pharmacist with M Health Fairview.
Ben Morisette
Xcel Energy- Network Engineer
I am an alumni of the school, having attended it from first through eighth grade (before the preschool and kindergarten programs were offered).  Along with many fond memories of the school, I have a strong attestation to what the school provides for academic and spiritual growth. My education at the school laid the foundation for the success I had in high school and on to college, where I attended St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.  It is no coincidence that I chose a small, private Catholic college to achieve my bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering, as it felt like a natural progression from my roots at St. Dominic School.
Today I am a Network Engineer for Xcel Energy.  I happily continue to live in Northfield, but now I do so with a family of my own.  My wife, Danielle, and I have grown our family to 4 children.  Our children are attending the school now as I get to vicariously relive all those fond memories.  I look forward to witnessing their growth as the school helps guide them into being the smart, confident, and caring people of the future.
Dale Fredrickson

I am recently retired from a construction company I sold early this year.  My wife, Donna, and I have two daughters, Jessica, who teaches fifth grade at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School in Delano, and Andrea teaches fifth grade at St. Dominic School.  We also have five grandchildren, two of whom attend St. Dominic School.  We have lived at our current home since 1993, when we joined the St. Dominic community.

I am the chairperson of the Facilities Committee on the school board.  I enjoy running, golf, softball/baseball, and being with my family.  Retirement will allow us to travel more, and for me to umpire baseball and softball games and officiate football.
Father Louie Floeder
Pastor and Board Member

Hello!  My name is Fr. Louie Floeder and I’m very excited to serve this community of St. Dominic.

I grew up in Shoreview, MN as the second of ten kids.  After graduating from Mounds View High School in 2011 I immediately joined the St. John Vianney College Seminary.  I had such a great time at SJV growing up, discerning my vocation, and creating lifelong friendships.  It was during these four years that my vocation was confirmed.  Then, I had 4 years at the St. Paul Seminary in order to learn theology and grow in pastoral charity.  Since being ordained in 2019, I’ve had several wonderful assignments.  I’ve had the privilege to serve the people of St. Stephen’s in Anoka for two years as well as the people of Divine Mercy in Faribault and St. Michael’s in Kenyon for one.  After that, I worked part time at St. Dominic in Northfield as a bilingual aid and I also served part time in Vocations Work.

Now that I’m full-time here in Northfield I’m so grateful to God!  He is the giver of all good things.  I can’t wait to see what good things are in store for St. Dominic!  God bless you all.  🙂
