There will be four performances of the annual Irish play this year. March 10 and 17 at 1:30 p.m. and March 15 and 16 at 7:30 p.m. All will be at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Ellis Street in Pembroke. Tickets are available at the three Mulvihill pharmacies, the CNIB ticket outlet at Walmart, O’Grady’s in Eganville and the North Algona/Wilberforce municipal hall. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. 

The Knights of Columbus is hosting their annual Shrove Tuesday pancake supper again this year at the K of C Hall on March 5th.  Our lead organizer, Henry, is looking for volunteers to make this another success supper.  5-6 volunteers are required in the afternoon between 2:00 – 3:00 pm and another 4-6 volunteers around supper time.  If you can assist, please phone Henry Sallafranque directly at 819-689-2523.

 If you cannot attend but can donate some dessert, it can be dropped off at the hall anytime in the afternoon on March 5th.   Desserts seem to be the first thing that go on this day so the more the better as it will save the Council from going out and buying it!

 Fr. Tim Sabbatical Notes:
1) Life continues to go well for me on my sabbatical. Having studied the works of Aristotle and St. Augustine on the subject of friendship my academic advisor is now guiding me through the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas. For someone like me who revels in academic
challenges , it’s been quite a rush! I appreciate your continued
prayers as I promise to offer mine for you each and every day that I’m down here.

2) Did you know that most of the ancient authors like Plato and Aristotle believed that friendship wasn’t possible between men and women? It’s not because of concupiscence would inevitably lead to an intimate relationship. Rather they held that women were incapable of discussing and debating concepts on as high a level as men. Good thing for them that they aren’t alive today. They’d no doubt discover just how wrong they were in that belief!!

3) We welcome Fr. Tanguay for the Sunday Masses of March. Thanks Fr. Basil for your generosity in helping cover during my absence. I’m counting on the parishioners in St. Joseph’s and Chapeau to make
you feel right at home in their midst.
