PARISH GROUPS

Within our Parish there are a number of groups that meet to enhance and develop the spiritual and social life of the community.

CATHOLIC WOMEN'S LEAGUE:

The CWL was founded in 1906 by Margaret Fletcher. Her ideals were based on common fellowship, the promotion of religious, intellectual and social work, and the encouragement of women to look beyond the family and be involved in parochial and world affairs. The Dorchester Section raises funds for CWL charities and local causes through coffee mornings and Lent Lunches. We assist in Parish activities, Holy Hours and ecumenical services. We have monthly meetings, with time to socialise and be entertained - sometimes with a Speaker. Our 38 members welcome you to join our friendly and caring group.

The CAFOD Support group has been working in the Parish for 15 years. We organise social events in the Parish to raise awareness of poverty in the developing world and to raise money to help alleviate suffering. Our typical events include communal breakfasts, an annual concert, quiz and harvest supper, in addition to organising two national fast days. Each year we have a Holy Hour to help keep our focus on the spiritual aspect of the work and to strengthen our commitment. New members are most warmly welcome.
