2) Bible Study classes have come to an end for this school year as we take our summer break. Classes will resume again in September as we start our study of a new book of the Bible.

3) Congratulations to the following children who baptized in our parishes last weekend: Leo Samuel Downey (Sheenboro), Easton Emery Allard (Chapeau), and Eli Levine (St. Joseph’s).

4) A reminder to everyone that the parish office in Chapeau is now open. Our office hours are now as follows: Monday to Wednesday in Chapeau from 9 am to 4 pm and Thursday (9 am – 4 pm) and Friday (9 am – 3 pm) in St. Joseph’s.
