Great news for the Parish of St. Joseph on Allumettes Island, QC.

Here's a photo of the high altar that we've just purchased to be installed in St. Joseph's Parish on Allumettes Island. This project will restore the Church to the way it was initially built as this altar is a perfect duplicate of the one that was removed back in the 1960's. It was purchased at a cost of $15,000 from a Church that was being demolished and replaced in New Jersey, USA.

Thanks to the generous support of the parishioners, we have already raised most of the funds to cover it's purchase, shipping and installation costs. Any and all donations to help us reach our final goal would be greatly appreciated. Cheques can be made out to 'St. Joseph's Parish' and mailed to us at PO Box 40, Chapeau, Qc. J0X1M0. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations.

Thank you.

Fr. Tim

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
