Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Cemetery Donation: John and Ina Bouker had an auction last weekend and donated the money to Holy Rosary for Cemetery Maintenance. Thank you very much for your $1,200 donation! Next Memorial day we plan to have an outdoor mass at the grave site.
Potluck and Sacraments December 7th: There will be a potluck following Mass on December 7th. It is an exciting time for Holy Rosary because June has asked to have Kara and Josh baptized. Additionally, the newly baptized members will be receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation and First Communion. Please bring your favorite dish and celebrate with our new members after Mass. All are welcome and you do not have to bring food to eat…there is always plenty to go around. This will be the Second Sunday of Advent.
Rosary: A rosary will be prayed after mass November 2nd for all those Archdiocese of Anchorage parishes who donate money to help pay our heating fuel bill. We need a volunteer to lead the rosary. Let me know if your are interested.
Gospel: The two greatest commandments headline the gospel this week. Although to love others seems like a simple enough concept, it can be tough to put into practice. In fact, love is the spirit of the law, the big picture, that in which all Christians strive for.
Storm Windows: Nine of the ten windows have been installed in the rectory. Thanks to Bernie, who actually took a day off work to help out, and to Pat D., who has been donating time and talent since the project has started. We still have to trim them inside and out. If you know any people who do trim work, please let me know. For pictures click HERE.
All Saints and All Souls: All Saints day, Saturday, November 1st, is not a Holy Day of obligation because it falls on a Saturday. All Souls day will be celebrated Sunday November 2nd at the regular time, 12:30 P.M.
Take care, God bless, and have a fantastic week…Fr. Scott
