Announcements: First Sunday of Lent

Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:

Ash Wednesday, 25 Feb: Mass will be at 5:30, bring your friends!

Catechism: Plan to stay after mass to learn more about posture at mass, i.e. bowing, genuflecting, etc.

Rosary: After mass this week we will pray the rosary together before starting the catechism.

Women’s Group: If you are interested in being part of the Holy Rosary women’s group, please contact Joan Reynolds, 842-2257.

Gospel: Jesus is out in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights. It is through grace that he is able to resist the temptations of the devil. Many of us need to hit a brick wall before we see the grace that God makes available to us. Grace is available to all people. We just have to know that it is there and be open to it.

Week Masses: I plan to have five masses this week in different areas.

First is the Ash Wednesday Mass at Holy Rosary at 5:30 PM.

Second, weather permitting; I plan to fly to Clarks Point for Mass at 11:30 AM on Friday.

Third, I have arranged to fly to Levelock on Saturday for Mass at 11:30 AM.

Fourth is Mass at 9:00 AM Sunday morning at Saint Theresa in King Salmon/Naknek.

Fifth, I will then fly back from King Salmon for Mass at Holy Rosary, 12:30 PM Sunday afternoon (First Sunday of Lent).

I hope all of you have a blessed and grace-filled week…Fr. Scott
