KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS RECRUITMENT SUNDAY –after all Masses this weekend. Please consider joining the Knights of Columbus, St. Dominic Council. Their primary mandate is to be of assistance to the parish where and when it is needed. They have been a tremendous help to St. Dominic since their inception in 2012.
ANNUAL HARVEST BAZAAR – Saturday October 1, 9am – 3pm. Sign-up sheets for helpers and bakers are in the vestibule of the church. In order for this bazaar to be successful, we need your help.
ST. DOMINIC MINISTRY FAIR – October 22/23 after all Masses. This event will give you an opportunity to join one of our ministries or committees. We always welcome new volunteers.
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS HALOWEEN PARTY FOR FAMILIES – Saturday October 29, following 5pm Mass. More information will be available in the bulletin as we approach the date.
ANNUAL RESETTLEMENT BAZAAR – Saturday November 12, 9am – 3pm. While funds from the pasta dinner and harvest bazaar go directly to our parish, monies raised at the resettlement bazaar go directly to the Resettlement Committee in order that they continue the tradition of welcoming refugee families to Mississauga. This is extremely important work, especially given the times in which we live.
ANNUAL REGISTRATION FOR SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION – 2016 – 2017
First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion – Sunday September 25 at 1:30 pm and Tuesday September 27 at 7 pm in the parish hall. Please note that you must be registered and attending Mass at St. Dominic in order that the sacraments be received. Please bring a copy of your child’s Baptismal certificate. If your child is not baptized, for whatever reason, please speak with me at the registration meeting to arrange for that to happen.
CONFIRMATION - Registration for Confirmation for grade 7 will be in January 2017. The Sacrament of Confirmation will be conferred on the weekend of June 3 and 4, Pentecost Sunday at all Masses. There will also be an extra Mass that weekend, at 2 PM.
ALTAR SERVERS – Many thanks to Jennifer Barber who has worked for the past several years scheduling our altar servers. Welcome to Natalie Mete and Christi Robert who are the new coordinators. They are preparing a handbook for altar servers in preparation for a meeting of all servers on SUNDAY OCTOBER 2 AT 2pm. Please mark this date in your calendars.
All servers’ attendance is very important.

I need volunteers for the following:
First confession and first communion meetings – I need 3 or 4 people to help on registration days, September 25th and 27th. I also need people to prepare the refreshments at all meetings. The ideal situation is to have a team who could take turns, making the work easier for all.
Confirmation – I am looking for a confirmation coordinator who can oversee the program. I also need help with registration in Jan. 2017 and facilitators who can help at 4 classes, taking our students through the confirmation manual, Anointed for Mission.
