The Biblical Roots of Ash Wednesday

by Brant Pitre at Catholic Productions

In this video, Dr. Pitre gives insight into the Biblical foundation for Ash Wednesday, as well as the rationale and purpose of the season of Lent. He addresses questions such as:
  • Why do you we use ashes?
  • Why are we asked of the Church to increase our fasting, prayer, and almsgiving during Lent?
  • Is Lent just about abstaining from a favorite food, or is there something more to it?

Fr. Bala Gangarapu Departure

OFFICE OF THE BISHOP

28 February 2019

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Fr. Bala Gangarapu will be returning to his home diocese of Hyderabad in India by 1 July 2019. In June 2014, Fr. Bala was granted permission to work in the Diocese of Fairbanks for a total of five years from his Archbishop.

Fr. Bala traveled to many of our remote villages, and recently served at Sacred Heart Cathedral and Immaculate Conception Church (Fairbanks). He made several trips down the snowy and icy roads to care for the parishes in Healy and Nenana. Thank you for your generosity in serving the good people of God in the Diocese of Fairbanks. It has been an honor and privilege to work with Fr. Bala and we will all miss him dearly.

Sincerely in Christ,

 

 

†Most Reverend Chad W. Zielinski
Catholic Bishop of Northern Alaska
Diocese of Fairbanks

Marian Consecration Dec 25 2018

Immaculate Conception

As we enter into a New Liturgical Year, we enter into Advent which is to renew our minds. Renewal is true repentance for repentance as St. Paul tells us it to but on the Mind of Christ. The Marian Consecration is the most effective and sure way to put on the mind of Christ. No better gift exists than to consecrate ourselves to Jesus through Mary. This Advent, I invite you to once again go through the Marian Consecration using these videos to help you. Please click on the link and begin your Marian Consecration so you put the Mind of Christ in your heart!

If you want to do this for Christmas, begin Nov 22, Thanksgiving Day
