Dear Holy Rosary Parishioners, here are a few announcements:
Congratulations: From left to right, Kara Ingram, Josh Weiland, Golda Weiland, and Jim Ingram. They were confirmed Sunday, July 13th, 2010 by Archbishop Roger L. Schwietz, OMI of the Archdiocese of Anchorage. Thank you Archbishop Schwietz for celebrating with us!
Thank you: Thank you to the Venua family for donating a couch to the Church. It folds out into a bed. We put it in the basement of the church.
Financial Officer to visit: This week-end, Monika Scott, from the chancery, will be here to train Angela Venua on the Logos Accounting system. Holy Rosary has never had any training on the system so this is a first. For not being trained on the Logos system, Angie picked it up rapidly and has done a fantastic job of keeping track of our accounting. Hopefully Monika will show Angie a few more tricks of the trade that will make her job easier.
Youth Visit: The youth from Anchorage will be here Monday, July 5th, 2010, on the 10:00 AM Penair flight. They will be on a non-electronic, community service retreat. We plan to have a potluck for them on Thursday, July 8th, at 5:30 PM. If you can think of any community service jobs, please let me know. If you have any folding cots or small beds, please bring them by the church. There may be 18 youth and three adults visiting this year. We will be celebrating Mass Monday-Friday at different times and locations. All are welcome to join us. The time and location of each mass will be posted in these announcements in the next couple of weeks.
Gospel: We must die with Christ in order to live with him. The readings are about risking what is comfortable to build the Kingdom of God. The Gospel says, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. What does this mean to you and I today?
Thank you: Thanx to all who cooked and prepared the excellent food at the Potluck. It was simply an incredible celebration!
Kelly Mountain: The Archbishop and I flew over the mountain that Father Kelly died on. We hope to raise some money to put up a cross and engraved stone. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. In the picture, the white patch of snow on the right is where he crashed.
Have a fantastic week and see you Sunday…Fr. Scott
