Beautification of Cameron Hall
We have received many comments and congratulations for the work that was done in the hall. We thank L’Arche for the donation of window coverings and for those of you who have already purchased a table to replace our older ones. We are still looking to replace many of the damaged tables and to complete the work that has been started in the hall. Please see Tony Di Lallo for more details.

The collection for June 8-9 was $3706.50

Fr. Stephen’s Congrats!
It was very nice to see that our 100th anniversary events were so well attended last week. There were new faces and many former parishioners who took the time to be with us.
I would like to thank all those who were involved in all aspects of the celebrations from planning the liturgy to staging of the events and fundraisers throughout the year, our map project which will be going out shortly, and the many others who made the weekend such a wonderful time!

Bible Camp – International Worlds Fair
If you enjoy teaching kids and are willing to work with our team we are seeking an Arts and Crafts director. Please call the office and ask for Helene.
Camp begins June 24th so don’t delay!

The Art of Fathering
• Commit to being a major player
Be deeply and passionately involved in the lives of your children.
• Do not let materialism erode your relationships
Relationships, not material things, bring satisfaction in life
• Know your children
Be aware of the various shades, colours, and hues of your child’s personality.
• Parent by the 3 L’s
Good father’s look, listen and learn from other parents and healthy role models.
• Be your child’s Hero
“The glory of children is their parents” Proverbs 17:6

By Victor M. Parachin
