ST. JOSEPH CONVENT IN CHAPEAU: Due to the weekly break-ins to the former St Joseph Convent in Chapeau. It is with regret that there will be a reassessment regarding the future of the proposed plans for the former historical building. There will a safety and security assessment done by two security companies early next week and a video DVR system will be installed inside and outside the Convent. I will be asking for the assistance of Provincial Police to provide me with a safety audit including lighting in the backyard. The break-ins have increased since school ended for the summer holidays. These incidents have delayed the future of any business development and the possible abandonment of a new development for the Iles aux Allumettes. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank those who have contributed to the history of the Teachers College, the Sisters of St Joseph and the Normaliennes.

Notes from Fr. Tim
As I return to work next weekend, I want to take this opportunity to thank my brother priests who filled in for me during my month of recovery from my stroke. Their support has been greatly appreciated. I look forward to seeing everyone once again in August.
