Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Once again the question about how Mass intentions are chosen for our parishes. The answer is simple: first come, first served. Some individuals come in once a year and schedule Masses for their loved ones for the year ahead. This is why you see Masses celebrated for certain folks on a regular basis while you might not be about to get the date you desire. All I can suggest is that if there are dates that are important for you, be certain to arrange for it at least 6 months in advance. We are already booking Chapeau weekend masses well into 2017. So remember, as with most things in life… if you snooze, you lose!

2) Bible Study Classes will resume on September 15th in the Parish rectory. New members are always welcome.

3) Our regular weekday mass schedule will resume on Tuesday September 6th.

4) Please remember to pray for all the children who will be returning to school either this or next week. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer holiday!

Notes from Fr. Tim
1) My thanks to those who attended the meeting last week to discuss the new side entrance project in Chapeau. We will let you know when the work is about to start.

2) Our sympathies and prayers go out to the family of Neil Chartrand whose funeral was celebrated in Chapeau on Monday.  We also ask your prayers for the repose of the soul of Laurette Chassie (née Chaput) whose burial will take place this Monday. Please remember to pray for the consolation of these families.

3) There are still one or two couples who are to be married in our churches this fall who have not completed their service preparations with me. Don’t delay too long or you may end up being disappointed with a generic or impersonal service… or if there’s required paperwork to complete that’s left undone, no service at all!!
