Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Gospel: The story of the annunciation is highlighted in the gospel this Sunday. Annunciation is a word we do not use often. The word pronunciation is more commonly used…pronounce and pronunciation. Announce and annunciation is the way the bible reveals that the Blessed Virgin Mary will bear the Christ Child.
Christmas Decorating: This Sunday please consider staying an hour or so after Mass to set up the Christmas tree (it is ALIVE); new nativity set that our parishioners donated; candles for the candle light mass Christmas eve; white linen, which will replace the purple linen; poinsettias need to be placed around the altar; and Christmas lights, which need to be strung up around the doors. I will bring some snacks!
Christmas Eve Mass: There will be only one Mass during Christmas. It will be Christmas Eve, December 24th, at 8:00 PM. No Mass on Christmas day.
Reconciliation: Please contact me if you would like to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. I will also be available before and after Mass this Sunday. I have canceled King Salmon Sunday Mass so I should be available by 11:30 AM this Sunday for reconciliation. Please come early and call me if you are interested. Thank you.
Have a great Advent week and see you Sunday, Fr. Scott
