Dear Holy Rosary Mission Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Thank You: Thanx to Aileen for bailing me out for the second week in a row. I hope all mom’s had a happy Mother’s day. Fog grounded all the airplanes in both King Salmon and Dillingham for eight hours. I finally jumped in our Cherokee Warrior II at about 2:00 PM and flew back to Dillingham. Because I have missed two weeks in a row at Holy Rosary I decided to cancel Mass at Saint Theresa next week to ensure I won’t get stranded for a third week.
Confirmation: NOTE: CONFIRMATION MASS TIME CHANGE. Since I was not available last Sunday for our meeting, all those being confirmed are asked to meet next Sunday after Mass. I have chosen 20 questions that we need to answer and talk about before confirmation. This will be the last formal meeting before the Archbishop has the confirmation mass. The Confirmation Mass will Be Sunday, June 13, 10:00 AM. (We will meet at 10:00 AM that day instead of 12:30 PM). Confirmation Mass at Saint Theresa in King Salmon will be Saturday at Noon.
Gospel: The Ascension is about Jesus being raised to heaven. Unlike the Assumption, where Mary’s body was raised to heaven with help “from above,” Jesus ascended all by himself because, well, he is divine and human, not just human like Mary.
Quinceanera: The very first Quinceanera was celebrated Friday, May 7, 2010 at Saint Theresa Parish. For pictures and a short story please see www.holyrosaryalaskas.org.
Aircraft Annual Inspection: Our Cherokee Warrior II is back in Dillingham after its annual inspection was completed by Tom Bishop of Nugget Aviation in Palmer, Alaska. See story on our Website, Our Mechanic called me, not Pope Benedict, but Benedict Arnorld.
Clarks Point celebration: For the end of the school year, this Wednesday, May 12, I was asked by the principal to celebrate Mass for the Clarks Point community in the Gymnasiam after their fun, games, and potluck. It will probably be at 1:00 in the afternoon. This is their last day of school.
Have a great week and see you Sunday! Fr. Scott
