Notes from Fr. Tim
1) There will be a St. Joseph’s Cemetery work bee on Saturday, October 22 beginning at 9 am. Please call Denzil Spence if you are willing to participate so that he can figure out how many will be coming and what tools they will be bringing. His phone number is 819-689-5050. I thank everyone in advance for your assistance. Your efforts will result in major savings for the cemetery account.

2) While we’re on the subject of cemeteries, I want to remind everyone of a few basic rules. a) The parish office must be called before any/all foundations or monuments are installed. Failure to do this may result in you having to pay to have your monument moved at your expense. This has happened three times in recent months. b) No one is allowed to plant anything with a monument. All shrubs, trees, or flowers planted will be removed without notice. Please remember that what you purchase is the right to bury someone in a plot. You do not own the plot as ownership remains with the parish.

3) I’ve had a number of people speak to me about last weekend’s request regarding Sunday collections. The fact of the matter is that at current levels, we are unable to pay for the costs of each parish. We need you to consider increasing your weekly contributions not only to pay our immediate bills but also so that we can start to build up some savings in the bank to deal with future unexpected expenses or projects. To give you a guideline to judge whether or not your weekly support is sufficient, please understand that we must receive an average of at least $20.00 per envelope each week to meet this goal. If you are currently offering more… thank you very much. Your generosity is GREATLY appreciated. If you are offering less, I ask you to consider increasing your contribution to match the average. If we all do our part, we will have no problems now or in the future.

4) We welcome Elliot Bouchard, infant son of Kristen Hynes and Daniel Bouchard who was baptized in Chapeau this past weekend.
