Dear Holy Rosary Mission Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Gospel: Jesus came with the “Power of the Holy Spirit.” This gospel tells us what happens during confirmation. During confirmation we receive Spirit Power. We receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit, i.e. the gifts and fruits.
The seven gifts are: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude (strength and courage), Knowledge, Piety (goodness, holiness, faithfulness), Fear of the Lord
The 12 Fruits are: Charity, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Generosity, Gentleness, Faithfulness, Modesty, Self Control, Chastity
Rosary: The next Rosary will be prayed after Mass February 7th. We will pray for those generous benefactors who have donated to our heating fuel fund. All are welcome to join us.
Prayers: Continue to keep Pat Durbin in your prayers and also the Bennis family. The sister of JD Bennis, Jacqueline Dee Grediagin, died January 13th, 2010.
Confirmation: All those wanting to be confirmed by the Archbishop must have a letter written by the end of the January 2010. The letter must explain why you want to be confirmed. The Archbishop has requested that all those wanting to be confirmed, teenager and adult, write a letter. Please give the letter to me and I will deliver it to the Bishop’s office.
Have a great week and see you Sunday...Fr. Scott
