THANK YOU: Our family would like to express our sincere thanks for all the kindness shown by members of St. Joseph’s Parish to our mother Frances Giroux . There were parishioners who visited, telephoned and prayed for Mom during her extended illness. During the visitation and funeral so many of you came with your condolences and to share precious memories of Mom. Thanks to the choir, the soloist, organist, and the guitar player for providing lovely and consoling music during the funeral Mass. The CWL prepared and visited Mom frequently to provide the spiritual peace & thank you to everyone else we may have missed. Your kindnesses are a special tribute to Mom, Thank you!          The Giroux Family

Notes from Fr: Tim
1) Oops. Sorry. I did it again. I forgot to attend a meeting last week, this time for the Catechists. My apologies for those who turned out. If my memory gets any shorter I’ll soon be able to organize my own surprise party!! Please just call the office to let us know if you are still available to help teach the program for this year.

2) Attention!! Finance Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 7th at 7 pm at the Parish Office in St. Joseph’s. (Since I live here, I’m not likely to forget this one!!)

3) Please watch for the Chapeau Supper volunteer sign-up sheets to help with this event. They will be posted at both entrances to the Church.
