Dear Holy Rosary parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Christmas Eve Candlelight Mass: Mass will be at 8:00 P.M. (weather permitting). There will be a communion service if I get stuck in King Salmon. A special treat will be handed out to children during the announcements.
Religious Education: Starting the first Sunday of Lent (Sunday, March 1st, 2009) and ending at Easter, there will be religious education (for one-half hour) for children after Mass downstairs. All are welcome to attend. If you are interested in helping with the lesson plan, please let me know.
Woman’s Group: There has been a suggestion about getting together a Holy Rosary Woman’s group to meet on Monday’s at 5:15 PM. If you are interested let me know or contact Joan Reynolds at 2257.
Saint Prayer Cards: At the Christmas Eve Mass all will receive a credit card with a name of a saint, a prayer for others, and a prayer for you, i.e. Saint Benedict, say three hail Mary’s for Vocations, say the “glory be” three times for patience. The prayer “credit card” can be kept in your wallet or purse. The idea is to pray daily these prayers and look up the saint on your card and use that saint to intercede for you throughout Lent…the year!
Rosary: There have been leaders chosen to lead the rosary after Mass the first Sunday of every week. If you would like to be on the list of leaders, please sign up in the back of the church.
Gospel: The gospel is about the Nativity. We will be using the readings for Midnight Mass. Quiz your children on the Nativity because there will be questions asked about it during the homily.
Thank you: Thanx to all that helped to set up the Christmas tree, decorations, brought food, and cleaned up! It looks great and smells like Christmas.
Have a Merry Christmas and see you Wednesday, 24 December, at 8:00 P.M. Fr. Scott
