The Canada Day Long weekend is upon us.  As summer holidays officially begin, I wish all of you God’s blessings during these times of rest, recreation, travel, fun and family.  For my part, I will be taking time from Monday, July 17 to Monday, August 7 for my Summer break.  I look forward to recharging my batteries after a busy first half of the year.

 Fr. Lawrence begins his ministry with us this weekend.  Let us keep him in our prayers as he settles in.  I also appreciate any prayers that you would offer up for Fr. John, Margie and Rebecca as they move on to different things.  This week Fr. Lawrence and I will begin the interviewing process with the hiring committee to hire new staff.  I trust that God will bring to us the right people to join our team.  Come Holy Spirit!

 This will be our last ‘full size’ bulletin until the weekend of September 9/10.  The next nine bulletins will be a single page.  Please take this time as an opportunity to consider signing up for our email bulletin if you plan on being away for a little while, but want to keep in the know.  Every Friday we send out a group email which has key headlines.  If any interest you, you need only click on the link to read more about it.  To sign up, please email Mary-Anne at the office to request being put on our mailing list: office@stmauriceparish.com .

                 Sincerely in the Lord,

                   Fr. Tim
