First Holy Communion
This weekend is First Communion Weekend here at St. Dominic Parish. It is a time of great rejoicing for our young people as they come to the table of the Lord for the first time. They have been preparing for this special day for several months along with their parents and families. It is a remarkable day in their lives and we, as a parish community, congratulate them and look forward to seeing them here with us as we celebrate the liturgy together every Sunday. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our catechists, leaders and helpers, Bev O’Grady, Melinda Mayo, Nancy Falls, Yolanda Swanson, Anna Yates, Sophie Joefferle and Silvana and Vanessa Messore for their dedication to the program and to our children.

First Communion children, congratulations, may God continue to bless you and your family and friends.  By this sacrament of the Body and Blood of Jesus, may you become a blessing for your family, and become a best friend with God.

Confirmation 2016
 Beginning next year, Confirmation will be conferred in grade 7. Obviously we will have both grade 7 & 8 students to confirm for the first year of transition. I am looking for catechists to help us teach the program, Anointed for Mission, once in the Fall of 2015 and once in the Spring of 2016. Please contact me if you would like to help us in this ministry.
