Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) Please pray for the repose of the soul of Sr. Miriam Downey who passed away this week in North Bay. Sr. Miriam was related to the Downey families in Sheenboro. May perpetual light shine upon her.

2) Bible Study classes continue on Thursday evening at 7 pm in St. Joseph’s.

3) We continue to collect email addresses from our parishioners. Please complete the form included elsewhere in this bulletin and submit it with the Sunday donation. Thank you.

4) I’m continuing to try to find people to sit on the united Pastoral Council. We still need one more representative from Sheenboro and three from both Chapeau and St. Joseph’s. Please consider helping to serve your parish by taking a seat on this council. There will only be four meetings a year so it will not take up a great deal of your time.

5) We will begin celebrating this week the Stations of the Cross on Friday evenings at 7 pm. throughout the season of Lent. This week they will be held in St. Joseph’s. Next week they will be in Chapeau.
