AED Training

Important Training Update for Ushers, Parish Council, Parish Staff, All Committee
Members and Mass Coordinators, as well as all interested Parishioners…

St. Dominic has an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), located in the social hall, near the kitchen. It is highly recommended that folks in the above groups know how to locate and use this piece of equipment in a cardiac emergency. This is a great time to learn about the updates in CPR.  WEDNESDAY, March 25, 2015 from 6-7:00pm in the O’Gara Social Hall.

Questions call: Nancy Ludescher, at the Parish Office. 645-8816, ext.203

Northfield Reads

Northfield Reads is a community sponsored gathering for people across the area to come together around a common reading.  The readings are selected to illuminate issues related to human rights.  The goal of this program is to encourage people from diverse corners of our community to meet, to discuss ideas, to share perspectives, to listen to others with openness and respect.  The long term hope is to bring us closer together as a community.

The book selected for this year is Enrique’s Journey.  The book tells of the arduous trip to the US of a Honduran youth in search of his mother who had left years before.  She had gone to the US in search of work to support the children she left behind.  This reading was chosen in response to  the flood of Central American youth into this country last year and to offer insight into the experiences and situations of some within our community.

Northfield Reads is sponsored by: Northfield Human Rights Commission, Northfield Public Library, League of Women Voters, Content Bookstore, Carleton College.  The book is available through both the Library and Content Bookstore.  For more information, contact Corinne Smith or Leah Eby.
