 ST. THERESA’S -FORT WILLIAM: Will be having a mass on Sunday August 19th at 11:00 a.m. with Bishop Michael Mulhall the intentions of this mass will be for all deceased cottage families of Fort William.

Notes from Fr. Tim:
1)’Come away to a quiet place’. This line from this weekend’s gospel inspired me years ago to name my cottage, “A Quiet Place’. Alas, given the renovations that have been ongoing there, it’s been anything but quiet so far this summer. Happily, those renovations are soon coming to a completion. But now I face the task of transporting a number of furniture items and a gazebo that have been stored in the garage in St. Joseph’s to the cottage to make the place ready before I host some summer visitors (brother priests) at various times during the month of August and I am turning to you for some help. If you have some free time this week and are handy with a wrench and screwdriver, would you consider helping me to get set up and ready to move there for the start of August? Please let me know if you are able and willing to help. I am very limited in what I can do, but I can ensure that at least there will be some ‘libations’ available to quench any thirst that might occur for those who can volunteer some time to help me out. Thank you for considering this personal request.

2) The annual Parish Draw tickets for St. Alphonsus will be available beginning this week. Once again the prizes are a homemade quilt and various cash prizes. This is an important component of the revenues we generate as part of our Parish Supper so we ask that each family either sell or purchase 10 books. Thank you for your continued assistance in this annual fundraising effort.

Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) We welcomed two new infant Catholics into the faith last weekend. Please remember to pray for Eva Rose Jean Lemaire (Gabriel & Stephanie) and Sawyer Louis Moreau (Joshua & Anna) that they will grow stronger in their faith each and day of their lives.

2) Congratulations to Michel Fleury and Mindy Gagnon who were married in Chapeau last weekend.

3) Our Pembroke diocese suffered a tremendous loss with the death of Fr. Howard Chabot on Wednesday evening. Not only was he a kind and talented pastor wherever he served but he was a true mentor and brother to his fellow priests. While I encourage everyone to pray for the repose of his soul, (none of us live a perfect life so we all need prayers) I can say without reservation that I would be happy if I could stand in his shoes before Christ at the end of my days on this earth.

4) HAPPY CANADA DAY to each and every parishioner. Don’t forget that if you are looking for someplace to go to celebrate our national birthday, the festivities in Sheenboro is well worth the short drive!

5) Congratulations to the graduating class of DWKS who receive their high school diplomas this weekend. Please pray for the continuing success of this great group of young men and women.

6) It is with GREAT joy and gratitude that we welcome Fr. Chris Shalla back to Sheenboro this weekend to celebrate the Canada Day Mass. Few priests are as respected and cherished in these parts as he is for his years of service both as an assistant in Chapeau and pastor of St. Joseph’s and Sheenboro. It is a real pleasure to have him back again, even if it’s just for one weekend. Ad multos annos Fr. Chris!!

Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) We welcome Bishop Mulhall among us this weekend as he confers the sacrament of Confirmation on the candidates who have prepared to receive it over the past seven months. On behalf of the candidates, their families, and our parish community we thank Bishop Mulhall for the kindness of celebrating this sacrament at our weekend Mass in Chapeau.

2) Our prayers and sympathies go out to the families of Denis Venne and Shirley Chaput who both recently died. May God grant to them peace in their time of bereavement and a merciful judgment to those for whom they grieve.

3) The main body of the Church in Chapeau will be closed from Monday to Friday this week as work is being done there as part of our ongoing repair and restoration program. We appreciate your cooperation by staying out of that sacred space this week.

4) Fr. Grant Neville was here last Sunday to celebrate the baptisms of three new infant Catholics. We welcome Hayden Belland, Myrabel Chafe and Finnley Juliusson.

5) Congratulations to Lindsay Sheppard and Darren Ranger who were married last weekend with the aid of Fr. Tom Fitzpatrick in Chapeau.

6) Anybody got some rhubarb to spare? I’m looking for some to put up in the freezer for my summer baking. In fact, I’m always open to receiving any extra produce from people’s gardens. If I can’t use it myself I share it with others who appreciate the fresh produce. (NOTE: Please don’t bury me with zucchini. I always get more of that than I can handle or freeze.)

Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) Last weekend was chock full of happy events! ‘Congratulations’ to Sara Conroy and Daniel Gawne who were wed in Chapeau on Saturday. ‘Welcome’ to Kendrick Rousell-Fleming (Karolann and Derek Fleming) and Beau Christopher Lorne Burton (Kristeen and Joshua Burton) who were baptized on Sunday. And of course ‘best wishes’ for the 13 children who received their first confession and communion too! Bravo to you all!

2) Bible Study is postponed this week as I will be out of town attending the wedding of a friend. Fr. Howard Chabot will replace me at the weekend masses and Fr. Tom Fitzpatrick will celebrate the wedding of Lindsay Sheppard and Darren Ranger on Saturday. Thank you to both of them for filling me for me and allowing me to attend the marriage ceremony in Dallas, Tx.

3) Well folks, we’ve finally had the St. Joseph’s bell tower repaired. When I asked the contractor (Irvcon Roofing) if they found any surprises when they began the work they stated that the only one was that the bell had not yet fallen through the roof! Thank God for that eh? Evidently, the decking that held it up was completely rotted through! But it has all been replaced and clad in rubber and metal to keep it watertight for many years to come. (The bell was forged in 1912.) All we need to do now is pay for the repairs (hint, hint).

4) Have you signed up to purchase any coffee in our Sheenboro fundraiser for St. Bryce’s Mission in Costa Rica yet? This group of volunteers works with expecting mothers and through their efforts, they have reduced the infant mortality rate by over 50% in the past 10 years. They are well deserving of our support. Coffee can be ordered through almost any parishioner from Sheenboro or by calling the Parish Office.

5) Pembroke Area Mission will be held at St. Columbkille Cathedral October 1-3, 2018. Please hold these dates open and mark your calendars now. Internationally known lay evangelist and author, John Pridmore, a former gangster from England who experienced a miraculous conversion will speak each evening at 7:15. One observer described his conversion as that of “a modern-day Saint Paul.” He had it all and it counted as nothing until he found ‘the pearl of great price’. Mr. Pridmore will also address student assemblies in Renfrew, Pembroke and Barry’s Bay. Read more about this mission in the soon to be released summer edition of Ecclesia.
