Loving and learning together as Jesus taught us
Serving ‘The Common Good’
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)
An essential part of the Catholic faith, the key values of Catholic Social Teaching are found at the core of the Gospel. The key themes of Catholic Social Teaching are:
Community & Participation
Care for Creation
Dignity in Work
Option for the Poor
Solidarity & Peace
The children, staff, parents and all involved in the community of Blessed Dominic are here to serve.
“Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world.
Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good.
Yours are the hands with which He is to bless His people.”
St Theresa of Avila
Over the years we as a community have supported many different charities locally and across the world including CAFOD, Cancer research UK, Macmillan Coffee Morning, Marys Meals, Save the Children, Catholic Children Society, NSPCC, Homeless Action in Barnet and many more. We have had events ranging from cake sales, to group/ class fundraising, to our Lenten fundraising.
We continue to aim to stretch our awareness and time to ensure we as a school support those that are most vulnerable in our world.
This year we enjoyed biscuits and juice for a donation of £1 we collected –£549.88
FAIR TRADE FORTNIGHT – 24 Feb 2020 – 8 Mar 2020
Thank you to the R.E Council and Mini Vinnies they did a great job selling some delicious fair trade treats at our fair trade cafe during Fairtrade Fortnight morning raising money for the ‘Fairtrade Foundation’. This Year Fairtrade is supporting more women cocoa farmers to take the reins and stand tall alongside men. Fairtrade Standards make sure that they have a voice in their community, are represented in decision-making and benefit from Fairtrade. We know that independent income in the hands of women brings positive change to communities even faster. We raised £132.00
