 Fr. Tim Sabbatical Notes:
1) I ask you please to pray for the soul of Mr. Hugh Peacock, the husband of
Laetitia Tardiff Peacock of Fort William who died this week in Miramichi Lodge
in Pembroke. His funeral services will be held later this summer in St. Theresa’sChapel at the Fort. Please pray as well for the consolation of Hugh’s wife and
children during their time of bereavement.
 
2) Will these flood waters ever recede? So many of our parish are suffering
terribly during this crisis, losing homes, possessions, memories to the
overflowing river. I know that so many folks have been generous in reaching out to their neighbours in need and I thank each and every one of them for their
kindnesses. But alas the worst is not yet over with predictions that the river will rise almost another 1/2 of a metre as waters are let loose from the northern
reservoirs. Please keep all those affected by this horrific flood foremost in your prayers as well as our ongoing commitment to help them rebuild their homes
and lives when the river finally returns beneath its banks.

3) One major consequence of the flood that’s going to affect us all will be in
weekly collections as even with government assistance people will need to use
their resources to rebuild their lives. If you have been untouched by the flood
waters I ask you to consider increasing your weekly offerings to help make up
for what those who have been touched by the waters will be unable to give for
the foreseeable future.

4) As I begin this last week of my sabbatical here in Baltimore (I will be home
again by May 13) I ask too for your prayers for a safe journey home. I have
benefited greatly from my time of study and prayer and am well ready to
resume my place as your pastor. I thank you, one and all, for the kindness of
your spiritual support through these past few months.
