I hope you have noticed the beautiful gardens and flowers around the grounds of the church. I would like to thank Andy and Michael Krampelj and their parents, Josef and Maria, for creating the gardens and for taking such good care of them. I really appreciate your efforts and dedication to make our grounds so attractive. I know that the Knights of Columbus also helped in this work and I appreciate all of their efforts too. Thanks!!

I would also like to thank Catherine Mowatt, our 5pm cantor, and her family and Steve and Cecelia Pinto for planting the vegetable garden and the flowers in the rectory backyard. The flower boxes are beautiful and the vegetable garden is well on the way to production. Many thanks!!

The Summer Camp Program, Totus Tuus, (Totally Yours), will happen from July 25 – 29. Registration is available until July 24. If you wish to register your child, please come to the office to do so. I am still looking for more volunteers to make this happen. Please email me at pjones@stdominicschurch.ca if you can help.

Congratulations to all our Graduates at Queen of Heaven Catholic School, St. Dominic Catholic School, St. Edmond Catholic School, St. Paul Catholic Secondary School and Archbishop Romero Catholic Secondary School. I wish you God’s blessings as you move on to places of higher learning. I wish all our Principals, Vice-Principals, teachers and chaplain, a safe and happy summer vacation. Best wishes to all our teachers who are moving on to new schools/assignments, in particular, Tom Podobnik, Vice-Principal of Queen of Heaven Catholic School and Carmel Murphy, Principal of St. Paul Catholic Secondary School.
