Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) We welcomed two new infant Catholics into the faith last weekend. Please remember to pray for Eva Rose Jean Lemaire (Gabriel & Stephanie) and Sawyer Louis Moreau (Joshua & Anna) that they will grow stronger in their faith each and day of their lives.

2) Congratulations to Michel Fleury and Mindy Gagnon who were married in Chapeau last weekend.

3) Our Pembroke diocese suffered a tremendous loss with the death of Fr. Howard Chabot on Wednesday evening. Not only was he a kind and talented pastor wherever he served but he was a true mentor and brother to his fellow priests. While I encourage everyone to pray for the repose of his soul, (none of us live a perfect life so we all need prayers) I can say without reservation that I would be happy if I could stand in his shoes before Christ at the end of my days on this earth.

4) HAPPY CANADA DAY to each and every parishioner. Don’t forget that if you are looking for someplace to go to celebrate our national birthday, the festivities in Sheenboro is well worth the short drive!

5) Congratulations to the graduating class of DWKS who receive their high school diplomas this weekend. Please pray for the continuing success of this great group of young men and women.

6) It is with GREAT joy and gratitude that we welcome Fr. Chris Shalla back to Sheenboro this weekend to celebrate the Canada Day Mass. Few priests are as respected and cherished in these parts as he is for his years of service both as an assistant in Chapeau and pastor of St. Joseph’s and Sheenboro. It is a real pleasure to have him back again, even if it’s just for one weekend. Ad multos annos Fr. Chris!!
