Bulletin Postings for 22 March 2009

Chrism Mass: Bishop Don Kettler, along with priests, sisters, deacons and other representatives from the villages in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta will be arriving on Thursday, March 26th, for the Mass of the Oils (or Chrism) which will be celebrated at 7:00pm that night. For all participating in the Mass there will be practice for it that Thursday at 4:00pm. Following the Mass we will have a dessert reception in the Social Hall. Please bring a dessert to share!

Rest in Peace: Please remember Alice Mendola and Colton Crow and their families in your prayers. Alice died on Monday and was buried from this church yesterday in a Russian Orthodox ceremony. Colton, son of Morgan and Margie Crow, also died on Monday. His funeral was held yesterday in Anchorage.

Confessions: Father Chuck will hear Confessions from 3-5pm each Saturday during Lent in the Sacristy of the Church. For those of you who are uncomfortable with face to face confessions, we turned the Sacristy into a Confessional each Saturday complete with a kneeler and a barrier between the priest and the penitent.

Communal Reconciliation Service: There will be a communal reconciliation service on Saturday, April 4th at 7:00pm.

Last Chance: Father Chuck will celebrate a Latin Mass at 5pm on March 22nd. It will be the last Latin Mass of the year.

Baptisms: Our next baptisms will be on Easter Sunday. If you have a child to be baptized please see Susan or Fr. Chuck.

The Second Collection next Sunday will be for the Catholic Relief Services. This collection provides funding for programs in other countries that the pope and the bishops believe need help.
