On Monday, August 18th, Archbishop Schwitz and several of his seminarians from the Archdiocese of Anchorage will be here in Fairbanks to meet with young men who want to explore a vocation to the priesthood and religious life. If you know a high school aged or young adult man who you think might make a good priest, call the parish office (488-2595) so Fr. Robert can contact these young men. And, as always, continue to pray for vocations!
Yesterday afternoon, Fr. Robert signed a contract with Bloom Enterprises of Fairbanks to start the work on our parking lot. Bloom will begin their work THIS MONDAY (August 4th) with the hopes of having the work completed by close of business on Friday. Masses will still be held at their regular time and the parish office will be open. In the coming week, please watch for heavy equipment and be aware of where you are parking so that we do not interfere with the work they will be doing.
Bloom will work on fixing the grade of the parking lot to facilitate adequate run-off. Once the grade has been improved they will lay recycled asphalt running from the entrance on St. Nicholas Dr. toward the parish rectory and around the back of the pastoral center.
THANK YOU to all of your hard work and sacrifice to make this project possible this summer. It will greatly improve our parish grounds!
St Nick's Annumal PIGnic is fast approaching. July 27th after the Noon (Latin) Mass the festivities will begin. If you would like to help in planning there will be a meeting on July 9th at 7:30 PM. See the flyer below for more details!
Our donor will be delivering the top soil for our new lawn this Friday evening, weather permittingI That means we need YOUR HELP on Saturday morning to prepare the soil for grass seed. Spread the word and bring shovels, rakes and lots of manpower to give us a hand. Remember, many hands make for light work!
