Announcements: Christ the King

Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:

Gospel: The gospel tells us what we have to do to be admitted into the Kingdom of God. Christ the King is the key. Being admitted to God’s Kingdom requires a stamped passport, not unlike the one we have to enter and leave a foreign country.

Airplane: The mechanic working on my airplane had to go to the lower 48 to be with his Father-in-Law who is dieing. Please keep Larry and Debbie Tibbits in your prayers.

December 7th celebration: Josh and Kara will be baptized and celebrate first communion and reconciliation the second week of Advent during Mass. Afterward we will have a potluck. All are welcome. If you can, please bring your favorite dish (but not a requirement to attend).

Manger: I am still looking for someone who can build a manger for the new nativity pieces. If you would like to donate your time and talent to do this, please contact me.

Thank you: I was stranded again in King Salmon this Sunday. Thank you Aileen for another wonderful communion service. Very few planes have been able to fly in and out of Dillingham for the past six days due to low ceilings, fog, and snow. I just happened to be caught right in the middle of it.

Fuel donations and Rosary: After sending out letters to Archdiocesan parishes, I have received a great response. Our Lady of Guadeloupe put us in their announcements and I have thus far received around $2,000 from their parishioners. We will be praying for all of those who have contributed to our heating fuel after Mass on November 30th. Children will be encouraged to attend and learn to lead the prayer.

Have a wonderful and blessed week…Fr. Scott
