Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) Please pray for the soul of Mr. Remi Vaillancourt and for the consolation of his family. His funeral was celebrated in Chapeau on Thursday. Thanks also to Fr. Réal Ouellet who stepped in to replace me as celebrant at the last second.

2) We congratulate Mindy Gagnon and Michel Fleury who were married in Chapeau this weekend. May they have a long and happy life together united in the covenant of the Sacrament of Marriage.

3) Attention all Sheenboro parishioners: Don’t forget that Mass next weekend will be celebrated on Sunday morning at 9 am instead of on Saturday as part of the Canada Day celebrations.

4) This weekend we celebrate the Feast of St. Jean Baptiste, patron saint of Quebec and Francophones throughout Canada. Bonne Fête à tous!

5) We welcomed Alexa Michelle Charlebois and Brooklynn Victoria Monetta Lepine into our faith when they were baptized last Sunday. Please pray that they grow strong in their Catholic faith throughout their lives.
