Notes from Fr. Tim
1) NEXT WEEKEND IS THE CHAPEAU PARISH SUPPER!! Please participate by either volunteering as a worker and/or coming out to share in the BEST TURKEY SUPPER in the Valley. Meals are served from noon to 6 pm. Bring some extra change with you to participate in events like the silent auction, parish draw tickets, and a chance to win 4 TICKETS TO THE OTTAWA SENATORS vs MONTREAL CANADIENS among other prizes in the Local Merchants draw. Call all your family and friends to spread the news so they don’t miss out on these opportunities as well as a great meal!

2) As usual for the Supper, we are looking volunteers on Saturday morning (9 am.) to help peel and prepare the vegetables for the meal.  Also, if you are free on Thursday at 9 am., we are always looking for helpers to cut up all the bread for the delicious stuffing we serve with the turkey. Many hands make light work for all, so please take that knife/peeler out of your kitchen drawer and come out to help. All this work is done at the Chapeau Arena.

3) Bible Study classes will resume on Thursday, September 15th at 7 pm.
