NOTES FROM FR. TIM
  1. Pauline (our Parish Secretary) has accepted once again to oversee the preparation of the meal for our parish suppernext Sundayin Chapeau. As a result she will be out of the office Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week. The office will still be open though as I will spend as much time as possible there myself. Your patience if you have trouble connecting with us during this extremely busy time is appreciated. Reminder: Please get your raffle ticket in either by dropping them off to the Parish Office in Chapeau or bring them the day of the supper.   Thank you!
  2. Speaking of the Chapeau parish supper, we are always in need of volunteers to help with many tasks from peeling vegetables, food service, table service, tea & coffee, setting up the arena and cleaning up after the meal, washing dishes etc. Please be generous and step forward to help with these many tasks so that we can ensure the success of this important fundraiser.
  3. Sticking once more with the same food theme, don’t forget to purchase your tickets for the St. Joseph’s Parish Supper onSunday October 19th. You won’t find a better roast beef dinner at such a good price anywhere else!!
