Announcements: 3rd Sunday of Lent

Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:

Gospel: Jesus gets angry and turns over the money changer’s table, which is located outside the temple. Jesus got angry three times in the bible. When is it appropriate to be angry? When does anger become a sin?

Prayers: Please keep William Tennyson in your prayers. William continues to struggle with cancer.

Prayers: Please keep Pat Durbin in your prayers. Pat had some trouble with his heart Saturday.

Thank you: Thank you Rick for bleeding the air out of the heating system in the church! Your time and talent is greatly appreciated.

Thank you: Thank you Pat D. for fixing the snow plow on Friday. Once again you bailed me out!

Rosary: Holy Rosary prays the rosary the first Sunday of every month after mass. Please join us April 5 as we pray for those generous Archdioceses of Anchorage parishes who have donated money for our heating fuel.

Talkeetna Convocation: I will be in Talkeetna from the 16th of March through the 20th. Every year the priests of our Archdiocese meet in Talkeetna for some continued education and fellowship.

Slow week for flying: The icy conditions and wind kept me grounded all week. I tried to make it to King Salmon Saturday, but the weather moved in unexpectedly, so I hopped on Penair. Robert, the Penair pilot had to turn around about five miles out of Dillingham because of icing. poor visibility, and low ceiling.

Little Black Book: The Lent “Little Black Book” is an excellent way to refresh our knowledge about Lent. I really look forward to reading the two pages every morning. If you have not received a book, please let me know. Mary at Penair in King Salmon thought the Little Black Book I was handing out had all the names of my girlfriends in all of the villages. Not quite Mary! The “Little Black Book” has six-minute daily reflections about Lent. The Catholic Anchor has an article about us and the "Little Black Book" in the March 6th Edition.

Holy Week: Masses for Holy Week will begin at 6:00 PM, i.e. Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil (April 9-11). There will be no Mass on Easter Sunday at Holy Rosary. Fr. Bill Hanrahan will by your celebrant.

Take care and have a wonderful week…Fr. Scott
