Announcements: Pentecost

Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:

Blessing of the Fleet: Saturday, June 6, at 2:00 PM is the blessing of the fleet. We need help that Saturday morning picking up chairs and tables at Holy Rosary, then taking them to the harbor. We also need help setting up the tent that same morning, Saturday June 6. Finally we need a volunteer to pick up the generator, amplifier, and microphone and set it up near the bell tower at the harbor, (Saturday morning right before the fleet blessing). Your time and talent will be greatly appreciated! Thank you Angela C. for your dedication and hard work!

Cement Pillar: A cement pillar over 1000 pounds has been, well, yanked out of the parking lot at Holy Rosary. It emerged as a small cement protrusion. After Mass on Sunday we dug around it. Pat D, Bernie V, and I found out it was a bit larger than we had expected. With Pat’s cable, knowledge, and tough old Ford, we basically yanked it out. It had frost on the bottom of it when we finally conquered it. Thank you for all the hard work! (see picture below, that is a yard stick not a ruler)

Pentecost: Pentecost is when Jesus sent his Holy Spirit among us. There are both Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Through prayer and openness, we can enliven the spirit residing in our hearts to help us in our daily lives.

Confirmation Judy George: I will be confirming Judy George, Friday, May 29, at 11:30 AM at Saint Peter the Fisherman in Clarks Point, with permission from the Archbishop of course! Judy was supposed to be confirmed during Easter Vigil but sickness in the family forced her to delay the confirmation. Judy is converting from the Moravian faith.

Prayers: Please keep William Tennyson and the Tennyson family in your prayers. William continues to struggle with cancer. Saying a rosary for all victims of cancer would be an excellent way to help out spiritually. June 7 is the next time our church prays the rosary as a community after Mass. Lets dedicate this next one to William and all those struggling with cancer!

Youth to Visit: July 6-7-8-9-10 youth from St. Benedict and SEAS will be visiting Holy Rosary. We need transportation. If you know of a person that would lend us a van or drive us around, please let me know. Also we need some community service work to do on July 7th.

Enjoy the sun and have a fantastic week, and see you Sunday! Fr. Scott
