Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Congratulations to Simon Allard, Alexis Fortin-Chaput, Jenna Gagnon, Alexis Hynes, Benjamin Lepine, Maggie McDonald, Baleigh Spence, Russell Belland Racing, who were confirmed by Bishop Mulhall last weekend. It was both a pleasure and honor to be able to prepare you to receive this important sacrament.

2) Next Saturday at 10:30 am in the Cathedral, Bishop Mulhall will be ordaining Justin Bertrand, Anthony Burchat, Stephen Helferty, and Michael Lund to the priesthood. An ordination ceremony of a single priest is a wonderful ceremony, filled with joy and expectation. Imagine how great it will be to watch the ordination of four! Please keep the newly ordained in your prayers.

3) We will very soon be distributing draw tickets in St. Joseph’s and Chapeau for our upcoming parish suppers. First prize for both draws is a hand-made quilt! The remained of the prizes are cash awards. These draws are an important revenue source that helps to make the parish suppers as profitable as possible so please be generous in your efforts to sell (and buy!!) as many books of tickets as possible.

4) Attention Chapeau parishioners: We will be holding another meeting immediately after next Sunday’s Mass to discuss the next phase of repair work to the Church. Everyone is welcome to stay and hear what is to be done this summer and fall.

5) We offer our prayers and sympathy to the family of Iona Morris of Sheenboro who passed away last Sunday. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Congratulations to the children who made their First Confession and Communion last Sunday. May it be the start of a new and wonderful phase in their relationship with Christ and his Church. Special thanks to their catechists and teachers too. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

2) Well, folks, the day has FINALLY arrived. The Chapeau Parish Office open’s this week. Effective immediately, office hours will be as follows:

Monday  Wednesday:  9 am to 4 pm at Chapeau

Thursday  Friday: 9 am to 4 pm at St. Joseph’s

We still have to get our electronics (including phones) up and running so it may take a day or two before everything is fully functional but if you don’t get an answer when you phone, just leave a voice mail and we’ll respond a.s.a.p. Thank you for your patience as we get everything up to speed.

3) Our final Bible Study Class will be held on Thursday in the St. Joseph’s Rectory. Classes will resume after the summer.

4) Congratulations to Francis Conroy! He celebrates the 45th anniversary of owning the grocery store this weekend. Thank you, Francis, for the great service and for selling the BEST MEAT in the entire Ottawa Valley for all those years!

5) We welcomed Adeline Denault into our Catholic faith at her baptism in Chapeau last weekend. She is the infant daughter of Dustin Denault and Renée Schryer. Best wishes also go out to Sam and Kiersten Vaillancourt who were joined in marriage last Saturday. May they be blessed with many years of peace, love, and joy together.
