GENERAL ELECTION: The Bishops have written a joint letter to all Catholics encouraging our participation in the
election and offering some key questions and issues for discussion from the perspective of faith. The letters are
available in the Narthex, please take one. LENT: We are now in the third week of lent, this is a spiritual season
preparing for renewing of Baptism vows at Easter. It is a time of Grace don’t waste it, spend some time coming to
daily Mass, or our Wednesday evening Rosary and Benediction or Stations of the Cross on Fridays. Or join us for
the Penitential Service on 26th March @ 7.00 pm or by helping others or by giving us some items of food or drink
or by giving alms. We at St. Dominic’s offer plenty of opportunities to help you along your journey. I look forward

JUSTICE & PEACE GROUP: Meet every 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Parish Room @ 7.00 pm. Everyone
welcome to come along! The breakfast to mark Fairtrade Fortnight has had to be rescheduled so will not take
place on March 8th but please watch this space. This year it is twenty years since the Fairtrade mark was launched
so the impact of Fairtrade is being celebrated. However there is a way to go: although 78% of the UK public
recognise the Fairtrade mark only 1.2% of cocoa and less than 10% of tea is traded globally on Fairtrade terms.
Please take action. Buy only Fairtrade goods for consumption at parish events and try to buy for yourself, every
week, at least one thing which is fairly traded. As always, thank you for prayerful and practical support.
FILIPINO COMMUNITY MASS: Held every second Sunday of the month @ 2.00 pm followed by light snacks and
drinks in the Narthex. ST. DOMINIC'S CREATIVITY GROUP: Meet every Thursday from 10.00 am - 12 Noon. For

further. Please come along if you can help in any way. If you can’t make the meeting but would still like to help
