Here’s a little Catholic humour to brighten your day!
– I was going to tell you about all the drama at the convent, but then remembered… it’s nun of your business.
– How do you make holy water? You boil the hell out of it.
– What do you call a sleepwalking priest? A “roamin’” Catholic.
Some Parish Bulletin Bloopers!
1) Don’t let worry kill you. Let the Church help.
2) Thursday night-Potluck Supper. Prayer and medication to follow.
3) Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our church and community.
|Notes from Fr. Tim:|
|1) I’ve got news! Bishop Mulhall has granted me a sabbatical that will run from January to May 2019 during which time I will be studying in Baltimore, Maryland. This sabbatical has been granted to me because of the 30 years of parish ministry that I have worked in the Diocese and I am very eager to take advantage of it. I have arranged for a variety of priests to cover for me here so that weekend masses will continue to be celebrated in all three parishes during my absence.
2) As a result of my upcoming sabbatical, I will not be restarting the Bible Study group until after my return. Further, Mr. Frank Trzebiatowski has accepted to teach the Confirmation students for this year. As a result, their classes will be held at the same time (9:15 am) in DWKS as the other classes. Thank you Frank for accepting this important responsibility.
3) One detail that I still have to work out is finding a place that would accept to take care of my two Beardies (dogs) during my absence. If anyone is interested, please give me a call at the parish offices. They are very gentle in temperament, get along well with other animals, are hypo-allergenic, and do not shed their hair. All they require is some room to run around outside, regular feeding, and some personal care and attention. Then they respond with lots of love and affection – and some barking! I very much appreciate your consideration of this request. Knowing they are being fostered in a good home will certainly put my mind at ease during my absence. Thank you.
4) There was one organization I forgot to mention in my thank you for our Chapeau Parish Supper: The Upper Pontiac Sports Complex. They generously donate the arena for this crucial fundraiser every year, and this is key to the success of the event. We thank them very much for their kind and generous support.
5) Pauline also noted that thanks are due to the students from the West Pontiac Connects. They were instrumental in helping to set up, decorate, and with food preparation. Thanks to them as well.
6) There will be a Spaghetti Supper on the weekend of November 10/11 to help raise funds for the Chapeau Peruvian project they have undertaken to support. Yves Lafontaine will be present to offer a brief PowerPoint presentation of the project during the meal. Tickets will soon be on sale and we will post details here on how you can obtain them once they are available.
7) This weekend’s readings focus on the gift of wisdom. Please remember to pray each day that it be a gift that is richly shared by God with as many of us as possible!
8) Saving the best for last… Best of luck to the volunteers who are preparing and serving the Roast Beef Parish Supper in St. Joseph’s this weekend. I know that they will be serving an excellent meal. Please join with me in praying that it will also be another opportunity for them to grow closer as a praying, caring community of faith as it has always been in the past.
