Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Once again the question about how Mass intentions are chosen for our parishes. The answer is simple: first come, first served. Some individuals come in once a year and schedule Masses for their loved ones for the year ahead. This is why you see Masses celebrated for certain folks on a regular basis while you might not be about to get the date you desire. All I can suggest is that if there are dates that are important for you, be certain to arrange for it at least 6 months in advance. We are already booking Chapeau weekend masses well into 2017. So remember, as with most things in life… if you snooze, you lose!

2) Bible Study Classes will resume on September 15th in the Parish rectory. New members are always welcome.

3) Our regular weekday mass schedule will resume on Tuesday September 6th.

4) Please remember to pray for all the children who will be returning to school either this or next week. I hope everyone enjoyed their summer holiday!
