Justice and Peace Group
The Justice & Peace group at St Dominic's has been part of the parish for over twenty years. We work to reflect on the issues of the day and to assist our parish to play its part in responding to the call of the Gospel to work for a more just and peace-filled world. We meet on the last Monday of each month at 7.30pm for approximately an hour. The meetings are not overly formal and we discuss a range of current social issues.
We are always looking for new members and you would be more than welcome to join the group. Why not just come along, meet us and see if the work we do is something that would interest you.
You are welcome to join the group - contact Fr Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks to the St Dominic's team that collected food at Middle Camberwell Woolworths on Saturday, 6 May 2023. We were part of a Boroondara-wide effort that made a significant contribution to those in need in our neighbourhood, as together we collected around two thousand shopping bags of food for Camcare, Salvation Army, etc for people in Boroondara. The Hope for Boroondara food drive was also a great example of Christian witness in the community, and of cooperation across the Christian communities of Boroondara: it was organised by St Hilary's Anglican Church in Kew, and our own team include people from Deepdene Catholic parish and from the nearby East Camberwell Baptist Church.
Following the 2020 Social Justice Statement from the Australian Bishops on Mental Health and their earlier document on parish support for mental health, St Dominic’s parish has adopted mental health as one of our pastoral priorities. Click here to open our portal.
In 2021 the Bishops focused their Social Justice Statement on integral ecology, a major theme of Pope Francis (and of his namesake, St Francis of Assisi.
Our Integral Ecology portal contains resources, and updates on our efforts as a parish to follow a path of renewal and change, as we seek to respond to the Cry of the Earth and the Cry of the Poor.
