Announcements: 6th Sunday of Easter

Dear Holy Rosary Mission parishioners, here are a few announcements:

Quinceanera: Friday at Saint Theresa in King Salmon Veronica will celebrate her 15th birthday. She will receive a special blessing during Mass at 5:00 PM. All are invited to attend!

Thank You: Thanx to Aileen Walsh who came to the rescue while I was stranded in King Salmon last week. She offered a communion service.

Thank you: Thanx to Pat Durbin and Bernie Venua for helping with the plumbing in the rectory. A person getting water drove around the back of the rectory and ran over our drain pipe. Pat fixed it up for us.

Gospel: The law of love is a commandment to be obedient. The law of love involves the two S’s, Sacrifice and Self-control. In marriage and any vocation there are sacrifices. “If it feels good do it” is NOT a way to practice self-control. A good way to practice self-control is to do not say you are going to do something unless you are sure you will do it.

Potluck: There will be a potluck, after Mass, the last Sunday of the month of May. Please bring your favorite dish and celebrate the beginning of Fishing Season and the birthdays in the month of May.

Blessing of the Fleet: June 6, Sunday, after Mass at 2:00 PM will be the blessing of the fleet. If you would like to help out, and we need help, please contact Angela Clark.

Catechism: We will meet after Mass for some instruction. The last I heard the Archbishop has decided to come on the weekend, as he canceled some other meetings. So, unless I hear otherwise, confirmation will be Sunday, June 13, at 12:30 (during our regular Sunday Mass).

Annual Inspection: I flew our plane back from Palmer today (Monday). Tom Bishop completed the annual inspection and generously donated around $1,0000 toward the $3,0000 cost. Included in that cost was fixing my compass, which I broke off in -20 weather and fixing the transponder. Tom also donated some survival gear and other aviation gear.

Have a great week and see you Sunday, weather permitting.
