1) Please pray for the soul of Victor Chaput, formerly of our parish who died in Pembroke on 15 September 2014. His funeral service will be at Paroisse St. Jean Baptiste on Thursday 25 September at 11:30 a.m. Our sympathy to his family and friends.2) Please pray for Mrs. Helen McCool(nee Donnelly) who died last week in Pembroke.   Her funeral was held at the Cathedral this past Tuesday. Again our sympathy and prayers to her family and friends.3) Correction regarding the Children’s Catechism Classes. They will begin on Sunday, October 19th at 9:15 am. This will repeat on the 1st Sunday of each month from that date forward unless it is a long weekend when they will be held on the 2nd Sunday of the month. My apologies for the error in last week’s bulletin.

4) Bible Study Classes start this Thursday, September 25th at 7 p.m. in the St. Joseph’s Rectory.

5) Confirmation will be on Thursday, November 27th at 7:00 pm in St. Joseph.

7) An obituary notice that explains why it’s up to each of us to build the Kingdom of God:

 Our church was saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valued members, Someone Else.        

      Someone’s passing creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Else has been with us for many years and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than a normal person’s share of the work. Whenever there was a job to do, a class to teach, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone’s list, “Let Someone Else do it.” Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results; “Someone Else can work with that group.” 
       
      It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the most liberal givers in our church. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed Someone Else would make up the difference. 
       
      Someone Else was a wonderful person; sometimes appearing superhuman. Were the truth known, everybody expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone! We wonder what we are going to do. 
       
      Someone Else left a wonderful example to follow, but who is going to follow it? Who is going to do the things Someone Else did? 
       
      When you are asked to help this year, remember — we can’t depend on Someone Else anymore.
