Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Joyeuse Pâques a tous! Happy Easter to everyone! May these days in which we celebrate the resurrection of Christ remind us of that great day to come when we too will enjoy our entry into God’s new kingdom.

2) Thank you to everyone who helped to put all the Holy Week celebrations, especially our sacristans and those who took responsibility for decorating our churches. Your work is always greatly appreciated.

3) I am happy to finally announce that the bathrooms in both the St. Joseph’s and Chapeau churches are now fully functional. It is expected that the new office in Chapeau will be open for business on or about May 1st. We will resume our Tuesday/Wednesday mass in Chapeau then. Thursday and Friday’s masses will continue in St. Joseph’s.

4) The Parish Office will be open next week from Tuesday to Friday at our regular hours.
