Résidence Meilleur Du Haut Pontiac: has now received its Charitable Donation Status. For families who wish, “in memoriam” donations can be directed to Résidence Meilleur Du Haut Pontiac and receipts for income tax purposes will be issued.

1) MANY THANKS to everyone who contributed to the success of the Chapeau Parish Supper. We successfully served almost 1000 meals without receiving a single complaint! We will publish a financial report once all the bills are paid so that everyone can see for themselves just how successful this annual fundraiser was. Next up: St. Joseph’s Parish Supper on Oct. 19th.

2) Bible Study Class:  This Thursday (16 Oct) at 7 pm in the St. Joseph Rectory.

3) We are searching for people to take a contract to clean the Church in St. Joseph’s and another to shovel the walks etc. throughout the winter. If you are interested, please bring your proposal to the Parish Office (7 St. Joseph’s Street), fax it 819-689-5303, or email it to We also welcome Maureen Belland as our new interim Choir Director/Organist who will continue until we are able to engage the services of a new person to fill that role on a permanent basis. Thank you Maureen!

4) 40 Hours for the Kingdom:  Beginning with the 1st Sunday of Advent, we are asking every family in our parishes to complete 40 hrs. throughout the year to come in helping us to grow in our love of God and neighbour. You can join in 40 hrs. of additional prayer or other activities to learn more about our faith by taking part in our Bible Study, other programs that will be offered throughout the year, or perhaps by participating in our upcoming parish mission with Fr. Denis Lemieux coming this winter. Any volunteer work that aids a neighbour such as shovelling snow for them, raking leaves, bringing in wood, baking for seniors or shut-in, visiting the sick, will all count towards your family total of 40 hrs. Maybe you have a particular talent that you’d be willing to teach to others. Anything that helps to improve the quality of life of your fellow parishioners will help you to reach the goal of 40 hrs. per family to Build the Kingdom of God. I will be speaking more about this initiative at each of the masses in November.

5) Pope Francis has asked for prayers that he might have the grace to navigate the Church in these difficult times. The Knights of Columbus are aiming at encouraging 10 million ‘Hail Mary’s for the Pope’ in response to this request. How about doing your part and offer a simple Hail Mary whenever he comes to mind? Every prayer helps!!

6) The Diocese is offering a day of formation on Sat. Nov. 15th at Holy Name Parish to help learn how to participate more fully as people dedicated to sharing our faith with each other through various ministries that you can share with the parish. Please call Deacon Adrien Chaput (613-732-7933) to register for this day or for more information.
