Announcements: 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:

Rosary: This week after Mass we will be praying the rosary for all of our generous benefactors. Kristen will be leading us.

Visiting Priest: Fr. Bill Hanrahan, whose picture is on the website, will be coming to Bristol Bay during Holy Week to help out. We will be discussion the specifics when I see him at the pastoral day in Anchorage Feb 12th. Fr. Bill is a retired military priest who resides in Seward, Alaska. He has a private pilot certificate and his own airplane.

Gospel: Jesus heals an evil spirit in the Gospel. The topic for the homily this week will be abortion. The objective will be to help people understand the teachings of the church.

Women’s Group: The women’s group meets after Mass each Sunday in the rectory. Come and join the bible study. All are welcome.

Catechism: After Mass starting the first Sunday of Lent, there will be instruction for families who want to learn more about the Catholic Church. If you child has not received first communion and is seven years of age, this would be a golden opportunity to prepare them. We will meet after mass for about a half hour through Lent and Easter.

Thank you: Thank you to Becky and Spruce for providing beautiful music for the Mass last Sunday. Your time and talent is greatly appreciated.

Prayers: Bob and Barb Leingang’s son Mark is recovering in the hospital. Please keep him in your prayers.

Sunday Collection: Thank you to all who donate so generously to our Sunday Collection. Per family, Holy Rosary donates more than any other parish in the Archdiocese. Keep up the great work and thank you so much!

House Blessing: Mary and Evan Franklin’s house was blessed this week. If you would like your house blessed, be sure to let me know.

Have a great week and see you Sunday, if not before.
