Announcements: 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few important announcements:

Funeral for Terry Nelson: The funeral for Mary Theresa Nelson will be Friday, June 26, at 1:00 PM. There will be a potluck to follow. Please keep the Nelson family in your prayers.

50th Anniversary Celebration: Dan and Dee O’Connell celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Sunday, June 7th. What a great blessing their marriage has been to our Catholic Church. There will be a special blessing of their marriage during Mass in July, followed by a Potluck. More to come later…stay tuned!

Gospel: Jesus heals two sick people in the gospel. It drains him. When the hemorrhaging woman touched his cloak, “The power drained out of him.” We all have the ability to heal others in certain ways. Healing others calls us to go that extra mile to help another in need. For example, say a kind word to a street person, re-adjust your busy schedule to sit with a suffering person, or pray for someone.

Prayers: Please pray for Pat Durbin as he is having more tests on his heart. He will be in Anchorage Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. If the doctors find complications, he may stay longer.

Youth Visit: The youth are scheduled to come from Anchorage July 6-10. If you have a life preserver for the skiff ride to Clarks point, would you mind dropping it by Holy rosary and putting it in the Old Church. Also, I am looking for some sleeping mats, 12 total, to put on the floor of the church basement and rectory basement for sleeping. Beaver Bed and Breakfast basically donated a van for us to use while they are here. They are charging us only $100 for using it a week. Several youth from around Dillingham have offered to help out, for example Angeli Venua, Kristen Clark. and Chelsea Wassily.

August Mission Talks: I will going to Green Bay Wisconsin August 5th through the 27th for mission talks and to visit my friends Eric and Dawn in North Carolina. During the mission talks I will be the celebrant at all of the week-end masses in each location. Aileen Walsh will be providing communion services in my absence. Thank you so much Aileen. Below is a schedule of my mission talks. These talks are to help raise money for our Holy Rosary Mission.
