The 200 Club raises a significant amount for the Parish.
It only costs 50p per week for each number and you can hold as many numbers as you like. Draws are held monthly in St Dominic's Church Hall after 10:30 Mass.
If you would like to join please contact Mrs Sue Whitney tel: 01453 542410 or see her after the 10:30 Sunday Mass in Dursley.
The winners are published in the weekly newletter.
As well as raising money to maintain and improve the church property, we also raise money to support a different charity each year.
Charities we have supported in the past include:
2019: The Tallinding Project
2021: Stella Maris (the Apostleship of the Sea)
2022: Illuminate (Charity supported by Churches Together)
This year, we are raising money for 5th Gospel Christians who support Christian Iraqis living in Jordan.
St Dominic's Hall
In addition to this we are planning a major refurbishment of St Dominic's Hall. It was built in the 1950's and still has the original structure with its utilitarian appearance and almost complete lack of any insulation. This results in much energy being wasted and it being very difficult to keep warm. The cost is likely to be over £100,000 which will hopefully be funded by grants, donations and a great deal of fundraising.
The next event is a Parish shared lunch on Sunday 25 June from midday in the church hall. Everyone is invited to bring a plate of food to share with our Parish family. We all lead such busy lives this is a chance to sit, relax and catch up. Please bring some refreshments too. We will have a bottle raffle and ask for donations of any bottles eg alcohol, non alcoholic, sauce, shampoo - anything in a bottle which will be hidden in bottle bags so if you are a raffle winner your prize will be a surprise. Raffle proceeds will go towards the Parish charity (5th Gospel Christians).
If you wish to support and help the Social Committee please contact either Laura Gardiner or Pat Uglow.
