Notes from Fr. Tim:
1) Please remember to keep the Patsy Allard and the whole extended family of Merrill Allard in your prayers as they grieve his passing.

2) I wish to express my ongoing appreciation to Yves and Kay Lafontaine for taking the initiative of picking and selling various fruits and vegetables as a fundraiser for our Chapeau Peruvian project (supporting a carpentry school). I pray that they will be able to sell out all the produce they offer after the Sunday Masses as the funds are going towards a very deserving project. They work for hours each weekend picking the produce which are being sold to us as a significant discount from Three Hills Farms and are using their own money to pay for the food. More importantly, they are offering a tremendous example of Christian concern for aiding the poor of the world, something that Christ commanded all of us to do. What do you think you could do to follow their example?

3) Here’s a little Christian humour to hopefully brighten your week:Lot’s Wife: The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, when little Jason interrupted, “My Mommy looked back once while she was driving,” he announced triumphantly, “And she turned into a telephone pole!”

Good Samaritan: A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan. She asked the class, “If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?” A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence, “I think I’d throw up.”

Did Noah fish?: (This one’s for Bert Collin!) A Sunday   school teacher asked, “Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark?” “No,” replied Johnny. “How could he, with just two worms?”

Higher Power: (Here’s one for all those folks who help organize Card Parties) A Sunday school teacher said to her children, “We   have been learning how powerful kings and queens were in Bible times. But, there is a Higher Power. Can anybody tell me what it is?” One child blurted out,   “Aces!”

Say A Prayer: Little Johnny and his family were having Sunday dinner at his Grandmother’s house. Everyone was seated around the table as the food was being served. When Little Johnny received his plate, he started eating right away. “Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer.” said his mother. “I don’t need to,” the boy replied. “Of course, you do.” his mother insisted. “We always say a prayer before eating at our house.” “That’s at our house.” Johnny explained.   “But this is Grandma’s house and she knows how to cook!
