Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) I wish to thank the Catholic Women’s League members from Chapeau and St. Joseph’s for hosting the hour of prayer on Friday for the cause of Palliative Care services in Canada.

2) Our sympathy and condolences to the family of Mrs. Eileen Carroll (wife of the late Kenneth Carroll) who passed away this past week in Pembroke. May God grant her eternal rest and peace.

3) If it weren’t for bad luck (health wise) this year, I’d have no luck at all! I’ve come down with another cold – although this one doesn’t seem as fierce as the last one. I ask for your prayers that I can shed it asap.
