Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) We welcome Bishop Mulhall among us this weekend as he confers the sacrament of Confirmation on the candidates who have prepared to receive it over the past seven months. On behalf of the candidates, their families, and our parish community we thank Bishop Mulhall for the kindness of celebrating this sacrament at our weekend Mass in Chapeau.

2) Our prayers and sympathies go out to the families of Denis Venne and Shirley Chaput who both recently died. May God grant to them peace in their time of bereavement and a merciful judgment to those for whom they grieve.

3) The main body of the Church in Chapeau will be closed from Monday to Friday this week as work is being done there as part of our ongoing repair and restoration program. We appreciate your cooperation by staying out of that sacred space this week.

4) Fr. Grant Neville was here last Sunday to celebrate the baptisms of three new infant Catholics. We welcome Hayden Belland, Myrabel Chafe and Finnley Juliusson.

5) Congratulations to Lindsay Sheppard and Darren Ranger who were married last weekend with the aid of Fr. Tom Fitzpatrick in Chapeau.

6) Anybody got some rhubarb to spare? I’m looking for some to put up in the freezer for my summer baking. In fact, I’m always open to receiving any extra produce from people’s gardens. If I can’t use it myself I share it with others who appreciate the fresh produce. (NOTE: Please don’t bury me with zucchini. I always get more of that than I can handle or freeze.)
