Sheenboro, St. Paul the Hermit Parish – Our church has some necessary minor capital projects (ceiling plaster, electrical stack and side door). In addition, we have two major repairs needed: the wall near the side entrance and repointing of exterior stonework. We are seeking donations from individuals or families in support of these capital projects. As we are celebrating the centenary of the rebuilding (1918) and dedication (1919) of our church on September 1, we propose that donations are noted in memory of a family member and a plaque will be placed at the entrance with their names. If you have questions, please speak to Fr. Tim about this fundraising initiative.

Tickets for Stonefence Theatre’s production of ‘Up at Fred’s-Allons-y’ are selling out fast and there are only a limited number left. Don’t delay in calling the Office or going online via Facebook to purchase yours. There will only be one showing of the play and once the tickets for it are sold, it will be too late. Don’t miss out on this new Canadian production about one of our most famous local characters – Fred Meilleur.

Fr. Tim Notes:
1) We baptized and welcomed Sawyer Lepine, infant son of Joey and Rebbecca Lepine, into our Catholic Church last weekend in St. Joseph. May God grant him a long and happy life in the faith.

 2) Happy Father’s Day to all our Dads and Grandfathers this weekend. May the sun shine brightly upon you all the times you stand before your BBQ today and throughout the summer season that is (hopefully) to soon start.

 3) Here’s some advance notice about two of the mini-courses that I’ll be offering in the Fall: (1) The Catechism of St. Thomas Aquinas (2) A Study of Pope Benedict’s ‘Jesus of Nazareth.’ Watch here and on the parish blog for more details.

 4) Trinity Sunday always strikes fear into the hearts of preachers as they strive to explain how God can be both three persons and yet one God. How about letting me know if my homily helped to clarify or muddy your understanding of the Trinity? It’s one way you can help any preacher improve if you take the time to tell him if he succeeds in bringing clarity and light to the questions of faith or is just making it more challenging to comprehend.
