Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Rosary: The first Sunday of every month we pray the Rosary after mass. We dedicate the rosary to all of our generous benefactors, especially those Archdiocese of Anchorage parishes who donate money for heating our church and rectory. All are welcome to pray with us. The next rosary will be March 1st and will be led by Sean White.
Ash Wednesday: February 25 is Ash Wednesday. I have not decided what time to have the mass. Are there any suggestions? I am open for 7:30 AM before work, 12:30 on lunch break, or 5:30 after work. The mass will be about 30-40 minutes. Let me know if you have a preference.
Gospel: Jesus breaks tradition and a rule in the gospel and touches and heals a leper. Jesus was known for breaking some of the rules, for example he healed the sick on the Sabbath, which was considered work, and work was forbidden on the Sabbath. In the Old Testament lepers had to cry out when nearing people, Unclean, Unclean!” It was forbidden for an unclean person to touch a clean person.
Thank you: Thanx to Brian and Walter for helping me shovel out my airplane!
Thank you: Thanx to Pat Durbin and Bernie for fixing the water. A valve wore out and they replaced it.
Last week: I held mass at Clarks Point, King Salmon/Naknek, and Dillingham.
Feb 10-12: I plan to be in Anchorage for a Priest Pension Plan meeting (Feb 11) and a Pastoral day gathering (Feb 12) at the Saint Francis shelter.
Feb 13-14-15: Plan to have mass at Clarks Point, King Salmon/Naknek, and Dillingham.
Have a very peaceful and pleasant week…Fr. Scott
