MARK THIS DATE ON YOUR CALENDAR
On Tuesday, October 10, 2017 we will be celebrating the ordination of Bishop Elect Andrew Bellisario as the Bishop of the Diocese of Juneau.
There are many jobs to be done for this ordination and we are asking for your help and many volunteers will be needed: transportation, hospitality, music, etc. Please be thinking about volunteering to help in some way.
Also, we are hoping many people throughout the diocese will be able to join us and we would like to offer them housing. Would you have an extra bedroom in your home? Would you be willing to house someone from out of town? If you can please let us know what kind of accommodations you can provide and how many people you can comfortably accommodate. Email or if you do not have a computer please contact Robbie at the Chancery 586-2227 x 25 or the parish office 789-2020
Would you be willing to share a picture of your family with us for a pictorial directory? Out of all the families in our parish only 40 have sent in family photos. Please send in one of your family for our new directory. Please include the names of those in the picture, current email address, phone number (s), and correct address. You may email the picture and information. This will allow us to update our census program and our directory. The jpeg should be no larger than 0.5 megabyte and please do not edit it.
Are you willing to take pictures after Masses? If you like photography and would like to volunteer to do this, please call Sandy at 789-2020.
Thinking of becoming a member of the Catholic Church or returning to the Church? The process for becoming a member of the Catholic Church, or returning to full membership in the church, is called the Rite for the Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Those interested in the RCIA process meet Thursdays, at 6:30pm, in St. Peter’ s Hall. This is an opportunity to come and explore the Catholic faith - even if you are already a practicing Catholic. So come, bring a family member or friend, and explore what it means to be a Catholic in the world today. For additional information you may email deacon Mike Monagle or call at (907) 209 - 2080.
Do you know someone that is homebound or in the hospital? Please call the parish office and let us know, 789 - 7307 X 2. In most cases the only way we know is if you tell us. Due to HIPA regulations the hospital cannot inform us of your or your loved ones presence. Please call and we will schedule a priest visit..

The Bible and the Virgin Mary The month of May has traditionally been designated by the Catholic Church as a special time to honor Mary Mother of God. This month is particularly notable as the Church celebrates the 100th anniversary of the appearance of Our Lady at Fatima. But many people don’t fully appreciate Mary’s role in mankind’s salvation. Exactly who is the Blessed Virgin Mary? What is her role in God’s plan for the world? What vital role does she play in our lives? If you would like to find the answer to these questions and better understand how essential she really is to your faith journey, come join us in exploring the video series, The Bible and the Virgin Mary. Based upon Dr. Scott Hahn’s bestselling book Hail, Holy Queen, this 12 week series unveils the mysteries of Our Lady. Sessions are held Thursdays 6:30pm, St. Peter’s Hall, at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. Each episode is approximately 30 minutes, followed by prayer and discussion.
