Fr. Tim Notes:
1) We welcomed Aurélie Isabelle Fortin-Chaput into our Catholic community as she received her baptism last Sunday. Aurélie is the infant daughter of Martin and Annick Fortin-Chaput. Please pray that she lives a long and happy life, growing ever deeper in her faith and love for God and her family.

2) Please pray for the repose of the soul of Mrs. Patsy Gagnon (nee Nephin), wife of Michael Gagnon, whose funeral was celebrated in Chapeau this weekend. May God grant her a merciful judgment and her family consolation and peace with her passing.

3) We begin our adult catechism programming this week with the start of a short series on ‘The Real Presence,’ a video series that helps explain our Catholic beliefs about the Eucharist. It will begin immediately following the 10 am. Mass in the Church sacristy this Wednesday. An evening presentation of the same series will start next week at 7 pm on Tuesday, October 29th, in the sacristy of St. Joseph’s Church.

4) We continue to put together our Eucharistic Adoration schedule, which will begin in November. It’s a fitting month to commence this pious activity as it is the time of the year that we rededicate to praying for our deceased loved ones. I can think of no more excellent gift that we could offer to them than to spend time before the Blessed Sacrament beseeching God to grant them mercy and a place in heaven.

5) We are searching for one more teacher to help teach the Catechism program to our parish’s children on the first Sunday of each month at 9:15 am in DWKS in Chapeau. PLEASE help us with this vital program. It is not an onerous task that requires a great deal of one’s time, but our children need to be educated in the faith and prepared for their sacraments. The program begins on November 3, 2019. Your help in spreading the news of the start of this year’s program is much appreciated. We are asking all children to renew their registration by either calling the office or completing a form at home and bring it into either parish office when it is open. Copies of the registration forms will be available in each of the three parish churches.

6) Looking forward to seeing as many as possible at this Sunday’s Parish Supper in St. Joseph’s. The meal is served in the St. Joseph’s Family Centre, beginning at 5 pm. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who make this event such a success, particularly everyone who donated pies and other food items as well as all the many volunteers who work so hard to prepare and serve the meal.
