I'll be away for a few days... gone fishing!


I will be away from any form of electronic communication for the balance of this week as I am taking the two other full time clergy (Pentecostal & Evangelical Missionary Church pastors) here in Mattawa into the wilds of north western Quebec for three days of fishing and fellowship. They too are dealing with the stresses and pressures of ministering to a flock that has been afflicted by the same economic and social tribulations that have affected the region and like me are in need of a little 'R & R'.

Aside from the benefit of these actions, it will also take us beyond the reach of phones, pagers and internet. No radio, TV, cell phones or computers - but the beauties of God's creation and blissful peace and quiet. Truly 'heaven on earth' for any busy clergyman.

I'll remember to pray for all of you and I ask for your prayers for three tired clergy looking for some peace, prayer and fraternal fellowship.

See you on Friday June 4th!

Fr. Tim


  1. Have a wonderful time and may each of u in your time of rest feel the hand of our God who holds us and keeps us

  2. Have a great time. Any chance you are going to Temiskaming? my brother worked at a fishing lodge there years ago, the place was indeed a quiet refuge.

  3. wonderful for you, Tim! The Shield country is so very beautiful at any time of year. I'm almost envious.

    If your version of fishing is anything like mine, you're not so much interested in catching fish as you are in connecting with the beauty of the Earth and all her wild things. A battery recharge.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
