Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) We welcome Zoey Rita Joyce Valliquette, infant daughter of Shannon Pelletier and Tyler Valliquette who was baptized last weekend in St. Joseph’s.

2) Congratulations to Kayla Rehel and Mark Morris who were married last weekend in St. Alphonsus. Please pray that they will have a long, faithful, and happy life ahead of them as a married couple.

3) Bible Study continues next week as we take a look at Paul’s Letter to Titus. Classes are held in St. Joseph’s at 7 pm.

4) The parishioners of Sheenboro launch their ‘coffee fundraiser’ this weekend in support of their social justice project, St. Bryce Mission in Costa Rica. This mission provides pre and postnatal care to the Cabecar indigenous people. Their efforts have succeeded in reducing maternal mortality rates in half since it’s inception. If you wish to purchase some coffee in support of this project, you can contact the parish office and we will add your name to the list. Thank you.

5) We extend our sympathies to Sharon Gribbon upon the death of her sister Patsy Gribbon-McCutcheon who passed this week.
