3. Rosary: The next rosary our community will pray together will take place after Mass the first Sunday of September. We will pray for all our generous benefactors.

4. Priest Retreat: I will be in Anchorage for a priest retreat from Tuesday Sep 2 to Friday Sep 5.

5. Storm Windows: I have six storm windows that I need to sell. They are Pella storm windows, 30 inches wide by 46 inches high ($250 Each). They are brand new, never used and are currently being stored in the old church. Please let me know if you would like to purchase one or know anyone who would.

6. Gospel: Suffering is spiritual graduate class on learning how to love. All three readings will give us insight on suffering and love.

7. Rock and Statue: I am still trying to get the 2000 to 3000 pound rock moved from Horizon to Holy Rosary. If you have any ideas, let me know. The Fatima Statue is here. After consulting with Nora Harder, Bobbie at Horizon, and Angela Clark, we have decided to put it on the grass in front of the church.
