Dear Holy Rosary Mission Parishioners, from Yakima, Washington here are a few announcemnts:
After arriving in Yakima for our regional canon law convention I had my picture taken with the three people that hold the Juneau, Fairbanks, and Anchorage tribunals together. From left to right is Jennifer Michaelson (Archdiocese of Anchoarage), Alethea Johnson (Diocese of Juneau, and Barb Tolliver (Diocese of Fairbanks).
New Phone Number: We are going cellular at Holy Rosary. Since GCI has erected towers all over the Alaskan Bush we have been able to have cellular reception in Dillingham and the surrounding villages. This service has been available since February, 2010. Rod Williams, a technician for GCI said the cellular system seems to working well. Our new number for Holy Rosary is this: the 12 apostles and Jesus said we must forgive 7 times 77 times. So, 907-843-1277. Our old number, 842-5581 will be disconnected at the end of April. A cell phone will also be available in the church (907) 843-1287.
Thank you: Thank you Bernie Venua and Pat Durbin for re-wiring the women’s bathroom fan and light. There used to be one switch that turned on both fan and light. Now there is a separate switch for both.
Gospel: Jesus, after being resurrected, returns to the side of the lake where Peter and some other apostles are fishing. Remember when the cock crowed three times and Peter denied Jesus three times. Jesus returning and cooking a meal for Peter was a sign that Jesus had forgiven him.
Have a wonderful week and see you when I return from Yakima…Fr. Scott
