Fr. Tim Notes:
1) NOTICE FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SEEK LEGAL COMPENSATION FOR FLOOD DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTIES: Mr. Colin Dubeau, a partner of the firm Nelligan, Payne, & O’Brien, will be in St. Joseph’s Church (7 rue St-Joseph, Allumette Island) on THURSDAY AUGUST 8th at 7 pm to discuss a proposed class-action lawsuit. Everyone who suffered damages or loss of value due to the flood is welcome to attend. Mr. Dubeau will only be here for one hour so please don’t come late!

2) Congratulations to Jonathan Michaud and Carly McDonald who were married in Chapeau this weekend. May they be blessed with a long and happy life together as husband and wife.

3) Thank you to those people who stepped up to volunteer at the performance of ‘Up at Fred’s – Allons-y’ on Saturday, August 10th. Your assistance will no doubt serve to make the event a great success.

4) In this weekend’s gospel, Jesus teaches a master-course in prayer. He illustrates how our words and our actions are to be of one accord if we expect our prayers to be answered by God. So, let me ask you. How have you prayerfully demonstrated your love and commitment to others in concrete ways this past week? If you can’t answer this question quickly, then resolve to make the week ahead a time when you weave both your actions and deeds together into one single and productive act of prayer.

5) Our prayers and condolences go out to the family of Norma Ranger (nee Venasse) whose funeral was celebrated in Chapeau on Monday. May she rest in peace.
