Dear Holy Rosary Mission Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Catechism: After Mass on May 9th, all those who are planning to be confirmed will meet. We will discuss sacraments and posture.
Rosary: This week after mass we will be praying the rosary for all those who have donated to our fuel fund. All are welcome to join us!
Gospel: The gospel is about the commandment of love. Love is one of those things that we CAN take with us when we die. There are other things we can store in our eternal suitcases as well, i.e. reconciled relationships, baptism, confirmation, our prayer life, generosity, our volunteer work to help others.
Meeting with the Archbishop: I will be going to Anchorage this week to pick up my airplane after getting some work done to it. I will also be meeting with the Archbishop to discuss his up and coming confirmation. We will also discuss my situation as pastor at Holy Rosary, i.e. how much longer I will stay here.
Quince Anos at Saint Theresa: May 7th, Friday, I will be in King Salmon to celebrate “Quinceanera,” for Veronica. Quinceanera is a Catholic rite that celebrates the passage from childhood to adolescence. It is a ritual that expresses thanksgiving to God for the gift of life and that asks for a blessing from God for the years ahead. The mass will begin at 5:00 PM.
Jury Duty: I will be starting the second month of my three month stint on Jury Duty for the city of Dillingham.
Phone Number: I will be keeping our 842-5581 phone number for a few more weeks while testing the cellular system. So far during the 1st month of testing the sound was garbled for about one hour in the early morning hours. The new proposed number for Holy Rosary will be 907-843-1277 (GCI cellular number). The land line in the church has been disconnected and a new fixed cellular desk top phone replaced it.
Have a fantastic week and see you Sunday…Fr. Scott
