Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Bible Study: It’s time to start our Bible study group for the new school year! We will be starting our journey through Paul’s Letter to the Romans as our first project. Meetings will be held in the sacristy of St. Joseph’s Church on Thursday evenings beginning at 7 pm. New members are always welcome.

2) We congratulate Stephanie Turner and Gabriel Lemaire who were married in the Chapeau church this weekend. Please pray for the long term happiness of this newly married couple.

3) Speaking of marriages, dates for next year are already beginning to fill in the weekends for next year. Don’t delay in contacting the parish if you are planning to your nuptials to ensure that you can reserve the date of your dreams! Remember too that the Marriage Preparation Program is MANDATORY for all couples and it is offered only three times between now and next summer. Space is limited for these preparation programs so don’t delay in reserving a space. Call the parish office if you require more information.

4) Since I raised the issue of telephones, I wish to advise everyone that we’re giving up on our experiment of obtaining our phone service in the Chapeau office through our internet connection. It was a valiant attempt to save money as our internet provider was offering it as a free service to the parish but ‘free’ is of little value when the phones only work properly a small percentage of the time. Bell Canada will be installing a regular phone line this week and will be issuing us a local number at that time. It is going to be 819-689-5757. But since the phones are not to be installed until next Friday (Sept 15th) don’t try calling before then!

5) Attention Catechists: It’s time to start preparing for this year’s program. Please call the parish office and confirm with either Pauline or me if you are willing to help teach our parish children our Catholic faith once again this year. We are always looking for more people to help with this important work so new catechists are certainly most welcome too!

Please offer up prayers of appreciation and thanksgiving for their many years of service as well as asking they be granted the grace of a long and happy retirement.

2) Congratulations to Harold Christopher Vaillancourt who was baptized into our Catholic faith this past Sunday. May he be a source of pride and joy for both his family and the community much as his namesake (Dr. Harold Keon) was to all the folks on the Island in years past.

3) The funeral for Loretta Durocher-Reid was celebrated in St. Joseph’s this past week. This was announced in my comments last week… but I spelled her name incorrectly! My apologies to her and her family for my faux pas.

4) Chelsea Smith (summer parishioner in St. Joseph’s) and Brian Begrowicz were united in the sacrament of marriage last Saturday. ‘Ad multos annos’ to the happy couple.

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.

Canadian Canoe Pilgrimage of Reconciliation: The Canadian Canoe Pilgrimage of Reconciliation with Native Peoples, composed of 30 persons, organized by the Jesuits of Canada, left Midland by canoe last week and will be gradually making their way to Montreal following a trajectory similar to that of the first Jesuits to arrive in Canada. Two voyageur-style big canoes will be paddling through Georgian Bay, the French River, Lake Nipissing, the Mattawa River, the Ottawa River, the St. Lawrence River to reach their destination in Montreal on August 15. They have had a stop over in Mattawa, in Rapides-des-Joachims and will be stopping on the shores of the St. Joseph Sisters’ Motherhouse on the afternoon and evening night of Sunday, August 6th, before heading to stop-overs in Portage-du-Fort and Arnprior and further east. All are welcome to meet the crew at the Motherhouse on Sunday afternoon and evening.

Notes from Fr. Tim
1) We extend our sympathy and prayers to the family of Lorna Brazeau whose funeral was recently celebrated in Sheenboro. Please remember Lorna and her family in your prayers.

2) Last Sunday we welcomed Madelyn Grace Murdock, daughter of Chris Murdock and Melanie O’Brien into the Catholic faith in Chapeau. We pray that she will grow ever more deeply in love of her faith and family in the years to come.

3) As we enter the final few weeks of the school summer holiday schedule it’s a good time to renew our commitment to pray for the welfare and safety of all our students, young and old. Remember that just because Peter gets to walk on water in this weekend’s gospel doesn’t mean that our kids can do the same so we need to keep an eye out for their health and welfare!

4) Congratulations to Mary Louise (Lulu) Lair and Matthew Juliusson whose wedding was celebrated in Chapeau this weekend. May God grant them a long and happy marriage together.

5) Attention Chapeau Parishioners: Please be generous in helping to support the upcoming Parish Supper by making a donation towards defraying the cost of the meat. There are envelopes available in the church pews for this purpose.

6) 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.
