The Pope’s Prayer Intention for August – For Small Businesses: We pray for small and medium sized businesses; in the midst of economic and social crisis, may they find ways to continue operating, and serving their communities.
Our Lady of the Smile Parish, Waterhen Lake - Day of Prayer and Healing – On Saturday, August 27, from 12:00 – 8:00 pm, Indigenous and Metis Peoples from the area are invited to come to Waterhen (School Gym) for a time of prayer. Emeritus Bishop Albert Thevenot, M. Afr., Emeritus Archbishop Sylvain Lavoie, OMI and I, Fr. Doug Jeffrey, OMI will be available to pray with and for people or to just listen and visit. We will also be available to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation and/or the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. We will have some traditional practices – the lighting of the fire, smudging, drumming along with the rosary, an evening prayer, some gospel singing and other prayer rituals as the day unfolds. We will also have some snacks and refreshments and an evening meal of chili/stew and Bannock. This day is the result of our listening to the people of our community as they spoke of their needs, and it has been prepared and organized by the people of the community. Please pray for us as we gather as the Body of Christ, intent on living out our mission of love and forgiveness as shared with us in and through the Holy Spirit!

Notes from the recent Finance Council Meeting
The Finance Council met on Wednesday afternoon, and we discussed the following items. We reviewed our Financial Statements and noted that our Sunday collections are on track with what we budgeted for the first half of the year. Our income is almost keeping pace with our expenses. We noted that our power and energy costs are higher than we projected. In early September, when people have returned from their summer vacations, Fr. Doug will give an update to the parish of our Financial Situation.
We expressed our appreciation for the people who support the parish so generously and we expressed our appreciation for the people who made the Garage Sale possible and a success!
