Notes from Fr. Tim
1) I regret to inform the parish that Fr. Michael Lapierre s.j. died on Monday, April 4, 2016, in Toronto. Fr. Michael was born in Chapeau and entered the Jesuits 82 years ago. He returned every summer and during the feasts of Christmas and Easter to assist in our parishes since the time of his ordination as a priest in the Jesuit order. His funeral was held in Pickering, Ontario on Friday at Manresa House, the Jesuit retirement home. His body was then interred at the Jesuit Motherhouse cemetery in Guelph. Our sympathies, condolences and prayer to the members of his family both here on the Island and within the Jesuit community. It is my intention to name the meeting room of our new side entrance in his honor. Any donations in his name to help defray the costs of construction will be greatly appreciated.

2) Bible Study classes will resume this Thursday in the parish rectory.

3) The children who have completed their catechism classes with Sharon Fitzpatrick will make their first confession and communion on the LAST weekend in May. Confessions will be heard on Saturday May 28th at 11 am in the Chapeau Church Sacristy. First Communion will take place in the church of the parent’s choosing. We will highlight and publically acknowledge whichever children attend each of the masses. I simply ask parents to call the parish office (819-689-5232) to inform us which mass they intend to attend. Thank you.

4) A few puns to lighten the mood…
