Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few important announcements for Trinity Sunday:
Annual Appeal: Thank you to all who have generously donated to our Archdiocesan Annual Appeal, “One Bread One Body.” We have collected over $1.800 in pledges (80% of our goal of $2,200). If you would like to help us reach our goal, please make checks out to Archdiocese of Anchorage or come by and get a pledge card.
Thank you: This month I have been stranded in Fog for three out of the four weeks of May. It is not a great idea to take off at an airport when visibility is ¼ mile with a ceiling of 300 feet. Thank you Aileen for the three Communion Services this month. Hopefully the Holy Rosary congregation has not fired me for not showing up!
Thank you: Thank you Pat and Bernie for patching up the T-1-11 wood siding on the Church. We are in the process of re-painting the church and hope to get some help from the Youth Group who will be visiting in July. You can see that the paint has been started and the siding patched (bottom right).
POTLUCK: This Sunday is our Potluck. All are welcome to join us after Mass. Please bring your favorite dish but do not feel like you have to bring something to eat. We will be celebrating the beginning of fishing season, birthdays in the month, returning students from college, and my seventh year as a priest (May 24th, 2003).
Blessing of the Fleet: The blessing of the Dillingham Fleet will be June 6, Sunday, at 2:00 PM. We need some help setting things up. Please call Angela Clark to volunteer.
Youth Visit: Several parishes in Anchorage will be sending youth to Dillingham for a Electronic free second annual community service retreat. They will be arriving Monday, July 5th and staying until Friday, July 9th. All the youth who participated last year had such a great time that them want to return again, plus several others want to sign up. Please contact me is you are 14 to 18 years of age, living in Bristol Bay, and want to be a part of this retreat…you will not be sorry because you will have a fantastic time!
MASS TIME CHANGE FOR Confirmation: The Most Reverend Roger L. Schwietz, OMI, the Archbishop of Anchorage, will be arriving on the Penair, 10:00 AM flight, Thursday, June 10th and leaving June 13th at 1:30 PM. The confirmation Mass will be at 10:00 AM, Sunday, June 13th rather than the normal mass time of 12:30 PM. There will be a confirmation Mass in King Salmon, Saint Theresa, at noon on Saturday.
Gospel: The Holy Trinity is one of the great mysteries of the Catholic Church. Here is why: God is one nature and three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We will never understand completely how God can be in three different places at once, or is he? To simplify things, think of the person who is a doctor, a mother, and a wife…three different roles, the same person. The trick is being able to do all three roles at the same time.
Have a fantastic week and see you Sunday, weather permitting…Fr. Scott
