Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Dillingham High School Graduation: Thomas Clark will be graduating from High School Friday at 7:00 P.M. Hope to see you there. Congratulations Thomas!
Blessing of the Fleet: Saturday, June 6, at 2:00 P.M., will be the Blessing of the fleet. Angela needs some help setting up the tent, tables, and chairs the morning of the blessing. Please let us know if you can help out. We would GREATLY appreciate it. Contact Angela at 842-5331 or Holy Rosary 842-5581.
Memorial Day Mass: I plan to set up a table/altar in our cemetery for a memorial mass for all of those who are buried. The Catholic Anchor is interested in doing a write up on the service. We will try to put a fresh flower from the Cracker Box on each grave site.
Thank you: Thank you Pat D. for fixing the sump pump. Thank you Mat O. for fixing the heater downstairs. Thank you Pat W. for picking up trash around Holy Rosary. Your time and talent is GREATLY appreciated.
Gospel: John tells us that Jesus did not leave us home alone when he was resurrected. We are never alone. Before he died on the cross, Jesus entrusted God’s Glory to us. Saint Irenaeus says, “The Glory of God is humanity fully alive.”
Youth Visit: Youth from Anchorage will be visiting July 6-10. There will be participating in a community service day July 7. If you have any projects for them please let me know. So far we only have one person that wants wood stacked. There will be approximately 12 youth to do work around the community…don’t be shy! Maybe you know someone who needs some help with something around the yard, house, garage?
Flying: Last week I flew to Clarks Point, Levelock, King Salmon, and back to Dillingham. The week before I also flew to Bethel for the first time.
Work around Holy Rosary last week: Gutters were repaired and put up. The basement floor in the rectory was re-painted. The parking lot was back plowed to get rid of holes. Noseum screens were put on the new storm windows. Flower beds and grass was raked. Fence was mended. The last new storm window in the rectory was installed.
This week to do list: Outside trim on new storm windows needs to be started. Clearing of space at the end of the driveway for second Holy Rosary sign and possible statue will begin. Will try to find help to level the statue in front of Holy Rosary. Repair gutters that ended up leaking after they were installed. Get flowers to hang along the rectory.
Have a fantastic week and God bless…Fr. Scott
