Revised Reconciliation Session #3 – Practice Session Sunday, January 20 from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm, Tuesday, January 22 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
I would like to thank all those who made our Advent, Christmas and New Year celebrations so enjoyable again this year. Thank-you to the Knights of Columbus and several parishioners and families who came to decorate the church this year. It was truly beautiful. The take down happened last Saturday and I thank the Knights again for orchestrating this event. I also thank the Maronite community for constructing a new Bethlehem scene for us to keep for ourselves. They have purchased a building in Mississauga and, when it has been retro-fitted for a church, they will be leaving us. I am happy that they left us our own manger scene which we will use for many years to come. Special thank to all of our ministers of the Eucharist, Ministers of the Word, Altar Servers, Ministers of Welcome and our two fabulous choirs. The music was fantastic as usual. We are so fortunate to have wonderful music all through the year too! Many thanks to our ministry coordinators who put together the schedules for the special and additional Masses. Thanks to all those families who volunteered to light the candles on the Advent wreath too! I would like to make special mention of Mike and Jennifer Pirri of the Apple Market. Again this year, they donated all our flowers for Christmas.  This is a very generous donation to our parish and is much appreciated by us all! Thanks, too, to our webmaster, Luis Gomes, for the wonderful website we enjoy here at St. Dominic. Last, but not least, thanks to all of you for your presence at Mass during these special seasons. I hope that our Advent and Christmas liturgies were meaningful for you. I would also like to thank you for all your good wishes and gifts. They are all appreciated very much.

PANCAKE BREAKFAST – Please remember the Knights of Columbus pancake breakfast on the weekend of February 14 and 15. The breakfast will consist of pancakes, sausages, fruit cup, drinks, coffee and tea and will begin after the 5pm Mass on Saturday Feb. 14th and conclude after the 11:30 Mass on Feb. 15th. Please support our Knights of Columbus because when you do, they support the parish with funds and various projects for us. Our new tables have been donated by the Knights and more will come as they are able to fund-raise.

20th ANNIVERSARY PASTA DINNER NIGHT – Our 20th anniversary pasta dinner night will be held on February 21st.  Come and celebrate 20 years of this great event at St. Dominic. Tickets are available in the vestibule every Sunday and from the office, during the week. Hope to see you there!

I wish you all a good week!
