Notes from Fr. Tim
1) Please pray for the repose of soul for Helen Fleming of Chapeau who died this past week. Helen was an active member of our parish and brought her wonderful sense of humor with her wherever she went. I ask you to keep her family in your prayers too for her passing leaves a big hole in their lives.

2) Bible Study classes resume this week on Thursday at 7 pm in St. Joseph’s.

3) Video series: Wednesday in Chapeau (Catholicism) and Friday in St. Joseph’s (Pivotal Players). Both presentations take part after the 10 am Mass. Come out and join us!

4) Congratulations and a heartfelt thank you to the parishioners of St. Joseph’s. Your ‘supper donations’ and draw ticket purchases equaled the traditional profit we would realize from past suppers. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. All this said I know that I am not alone in saying that I hope we will be able to have an actual parish supper next year. Having the funds in the bank means we can pay our winter bills but nothing can satisfy like that excellent roast beef dinner!!

5) Be extra careful driving on Tuesday as there should be quite a few ghosts, goblins, and superheroes traveling from house to house in search of candies and treats once the sun goes down.

6) Speaking of the setting sun, next Sunday (Nov. 5) we switch back to Standard Time. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour before going to bed on Saturday. You wouldn’t want to deprive yourself of an extra hour’s sleep.
