Notes from Fr. Tim
1) We extend our sympathy and prayers to the family of Lauretta Durocher-Reid (nee Gallagher) who died this week. She is being waked from the Hayes Funeral Home in Chapeau on Sunday and her funeral will be held in St. Joseph’s on Monday. Burial will be in the Waltham cemetery. Visit the parish blog (www.uppontiacparishes.wordpress.com) for more details.

2) Please keep Mr. M.J. Sullivan of Chapeau in your prayers in the wake of the destruction of his house in a fire this past week. Thankfully no one was injured but the loss of one’s home to a fire is devastating for anyone to endure.

3) Have you picked up your parish draw tickets to buy or sell yet? We count on your help in making this important part of the parish suppers a success.

4) Congratulations to Brian Begrowicz and Chelsea Smith who were married in the St. Joseph’s Church this weekend. May God bless them a long and happy life together.

5) Last weekend we welcomed Lucy Johnson, infant daughter of Keah Adams and Ian Johnson as she was baptized into our Catholic Church. Please remember to pray for her and her family as she grows in her faith.

6) We will be resuming our Bible Study classes in mid-September. We’ve moved the site of the classes to the St. Joseph’s Sacristy but the time remains the same: Thursday evenings from 7-8 pm. Now would be a great time to reserve that space on your calendars so that you can join in the study of God’s word and it’s meaning for your life.

7) The handmade quilts which are the top prize for the St. Alphonsus and St. Joseph’s Parish draws are on display in each church. They are there to act as an incentive to both buy and sell tickets. Please remember that we ask every family to either purchase or sell no less than 10 books of tickets to ensure the success of each draw. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Notes from Fr. Tim
1) The telephones are finally working in the Chapeau office. At least they are today. Tomorrow? Who knows? If you want to call there directly to reach Pauline or me on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Wednesdays, the number is 1-819-506-6977. We usually have the call forwarding on from the St. Joseph’s office to the one in Chapeau so you can still reach us at 819-689-5232. In cases of emergency only, a priest can be contacted by calling 613-281-0872.

2) We welcome Rowan Godin (John Godin/Krystal Landry) and Aiden Godin (Matthew Godin/ Amanda Byers) who were baptized into our Catholic faith in Chapeau last weekend.

3) Our sympathy and condolences are extended to Tim Doyle whose mother Carmelita (Cannie) Doyle died this past Wednesday evening. Her wake is to be held at the Hayes Funeral Home in Chapeau on Monday (2-4 pm, 7-9 pm) and funeral service will be on Tuesday at St. Paul the Hermit Parish in Sheenboro. Please visit either the parish or Hayes Funeral Home website for the time of the funeral. Please pray both for the repose of her soul and the consolation of her family.

4) As a follow-up to last Sunday’s homily, here is the quote I referenced that expands upon your role as Catholic lay evangelists within your parish:  “Fulfilling one’s Christian mission requires joining with other members of the church. For example, it is good to be active in one’s parish which “brings the Church into the neighborhood” (n. 27). “A member of the lay faithful can never remain in isolation from the community, but must live in a continual interaction with others, with a lively sense of fellowship” (n. 20).”

5) Draw tickets for St. Joseph’s parish are now available to be sold or purchased. Prizes include a handmade quilt and various cash prizes. We ask every family to either purchase or sell at least 10 books of tickets to ensure that the draw is a financial success.

Notes from Fr. Tim
1) We extend our sympathy and condolences to the families of Teresa Conroy (nee Fortune) and Elmer Gallagher who both passed away this week. It seems somewhat appropriate that they follow each other so closely into eternal life given that they lived as neighbours in Chapeau for so many years!. Teresa’s wake will be held this Sunday from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm at the Hayes Funeral Chapel in Chapeau with the funeral mass celebrated on Monday at11 am in St. Alphonsus Parish. Elmer Gallagher’s wake will also be held at the Hayes Funeral Chapel on Sunday, March 26 from 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm. His funeral will be held in St. Joseph’s Church on Monday, March 27th at 11 am. Please keep both of their families in your thoughts and prayers.

2) A reminder to the students preparing to receive their confirmation at the hand of Bishop Mulhall this coming June to study well. The exam testing your knowledge of the sacrament will be held at our next class. Passing this test is a requirement for receiving the sacrament. You don’t want to have to repeat the course again next year!!

3) We will be having a parish meeting for St. Alphonsus Church immediately following this Sunday’s mass to explain the various construction and repair work that is taking place. Since you are going to be asked many times to help contribute financially to these projects you might as well find out how your money is going to be spent.

4) Have you purchased your ticket yet for the Spring Concert and Supper in aid of St. Alphonsus Church? Not only will there be beautiful music next weekend but it’s being followed with a tasty roast beef supper in Harrington Community Centre. Please help to make both halves of this event a great success.

5) We welcome Fr. Mitch back to Sheenboro this weekend. I trust he will enjoy the traditional hospitality that the residents there are so famous for and gets to stuff himself with lots of good food at the parish potluck which follows the 5 pm. mass. Our thanks to him as well for his generous gift of a St. Patrick’s statue to adorn St. Paul the Hermit Church. It will be just one more touch of green in that place where the Irish are so strongly felt!

R.I.P. Teresa Conroy (nee Fortune)
