Dear Holy Rosary Mission Parishioners, here are some announcements:
Confirmation Candidates: At Holy Rosary in Dillingham, Jim Larson, Alaina Grohall, Jim Ingram, Kara Ingram, and Jonna Bouker are candidates for confirmation this year. At Saint Theresa in King Salmon, Kierra Tretikoff and Dillon Brady are candidates. Please keep them in your prayers.
Gospel: The poor widow in the gospel gave two cents while the Pharisees gave much more. The old lady gave from her poverty while the Pharisees from their surplus. Surplus, as defined by the dictionary is the amount of money that remains after MY needs are met FIRST. The message is this: by being better stewards (managers) of our time, talent, and money, we can be more generous to others .
Thanx: Thank you very much Angela Clark and all who signed my Birthday card. Thank you for the gift as well. I will use the $ while I am visiting my brand-new-soon-to-be great Nephew when I am home for Thanksgiving.
Mission Talk: I was able to fly to Clarks Point, Ugashik, and King Salmon/Naknek this week. I took some pictures of Ugashik and they are posted on our website, www.holyrosaryalaska.org. There are also pictures some of our ministers a little farther down the webpage.
Funeral Mass: There will be a funeral Mass at Holy Rosary for James Gardener who died Friday. The funeral will be Friday, November 6, 2009 (time to be announced). Please keep James and his family in your prayers.
God bless and have a wonderful day…Fr. Scott
