Dear Holy Rosary Mission Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Confirmation: Please continue to pray for those being confirmed and baptized around Easter. At present we have four to be baptized at the Easter Vigil and five to be confirmed by the Archbishop in June.
Presentation of the Creed: Those to be confirmed will be presented a certificate at Mass this Sunday. This certificate basically confirms that they have read the Creed and believe all that professed. In order to be Catholic, one has to believe everything stated in our Creed (Profession of Faith).
Thank you: Thank you Rick Tennyson for plowing the Church parking lot while I was in Anchorage and our plow was broke down. Stelling’s in Dillingham replaced a relay switch on our plow, which fixed it. Here is the good part, they did not charge us because they actually used our plow to plow their parking lot! Only in Alaska! Also, thank you to Pat Durbin and Bernie Venua for installing light switches in the church and helping out with the shower installation.
Holy Week: Holy Thursday and Good Friday will be at Holy Rosary Parish. The time will be 5:30 PM. Easter Vigil will Be Saturday, April 3, at 8:00 PM. There will be no Sunday Easter Mass.
Shower: There is a shower being installed by Scott King. Here are two pictures of the bathroom in our church basement. The shower will help to accommodate the twelve teen we will have on retreat July 5 to July 9th. Work in Progress.
Anchorage Youth Visit: The second annual “non-electronic, community service retreat” will take place again this year. We need your help. First, we need a major community project July 6th. Second, a number of other community projects, i.e. things you need done around the house. Third, we need to plan on a potluck Thursday July 8th. All Bristol Bay youth are welcome to participate in the activities. A flight over to Clarks Point and Ekuk are also planned.
Have a wonderful week and see you Sunday! Fr. Scott
