Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) I ask please that you pray for the repose of the soul of Mrs. Carmelita Gleason who died this week. Her funeral was celebrated on Saturday in Sheenboro. May God grant solace and comfort to her family as they grieve her loss.

2) Bible Study group will meet on Thursday at 7 pm in St. Joseph’s. We are beginning a new book of the Bible so now would be a great time to join us!

3) Oops. Evidently, I need help learning how to count to 10 as there was still one more video to view in the ‘Catholicism’ video series! The last video will be on the subject of prayer and the Holy Spirit. We will watch it in Chapeau on Wednesday morning immediately following the 10 am. Mass.

4) There is a meeting of the Parish Finance Committee on Wednesday evening at 7 pm in the St. Joseph’s rectory.

5) The Sheenboro Pastoral Council has a meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 23rd at 7 pm in the Chapeau Office. Please let either Joann McCann or the office know if you cannot make it to the meeting.

6) Since the weather kept everyone away on Friday, the ‘Pivotal Players’ video has been rescheduled to this Friday following the 10 am. Mass in St. Joseph’s.
