2) Our sympathy and prayers go out to the family of Annette Chaput, wife of Armand Chaput who passed away last weekend. Her funeral will be held in St. Alphonsus Parish in Chapeau this Friday at 11 am.

3) I am looking for various volunteers from each of the parishes to participate as coordinators for our upcoming program of Eucharistic Adoration services. Please call me at the office if you have any questions or are willing to help. Thank you.

4) Perpetual Eucharistic adoration is our response to Jesus’ love for us. God loves you and when you adore the Lord, He grants many special blessings of His goodness, grace, love and mercy. We would like to start round the clock Adoration at our parish, seven days a week. At least one adorer needs to be scheduled and present for every hour. An Adoration Invitation Sign-Up will take place at all the weekend Masses on September 20-21. Everyone is invited to sign-up to commit to a weekly holy hour with Jesus, truly present in the Most Holy Eucharist. “Come to Me and I will refresh you!”

5) Adoration Coordinating Team & Organizational Meeting: We are seeking volunteers to help coordinate our adoration program. We need a Head Coordinator (1-2 persons), 4 Division leaders (we divide the day into 6 hour time divisions), a Database Manager and 24 Hourly Captains. There will be an opportunity to sign-up for these roles on the Adoration Invitation Sign-Up form. An organizational meeting will take place on Sunday, Sept. 21st at 7 p.m. in the St. Joseph’s Sacristy for those interested in helping to coordinate perpetual Eucharistic adoration. Please consider attending the meeting so our parishes may have the wonderful blessing of adoring Our Lord, as He deserves.
