Please help us celebrate the Ordination and Installation of Bishop-Elect, Fr. Chad Zielinski as the sixth bishop of the Diocese of Fairbanks. In recognition of this special event, the Diocese of Fairbanks is sponsoring a congratulatory ad from businesses and families. Your family photo, text, or business card, can be included in a special 2-page ad that will run on Sunday, December 14, (the day before the Ordination) in the Fairbanks Daily News Miner.
Holy Father Pope Francis has appointed a new bishop for the Catholic Diocese of Fairbanks. In accord with his reputation for doing the unexpected, Pope Francis has asked Reverend Chad W. Zielinski, an active military chaplain at Eielson Air Force Base, Fairbanks, Alaska to lead the United States’ northernmost diocese. It is the first time in recent history an active military chaplain has been named to be the Ordinary, or spiritual head, of a diocese.
The diocese will host a meeting with parishioners concerned about the recent arrest of Rev. Clint Landry. The meeting is scheduled Thursday at 6:30 PM at Sacred Heart Cathedral. For more information contact either Robert Hannon at 374-9510, email@example.com, or Ronnie Rosenberg at 374-9511, firstname.lastname@example.org
With the flu season upon us I believe it is prudent that the Archdiocese of Anchorage, after consulting with local medical experts, and following the lead of the United State Conference of Catholic Bishops, issue these regulations. You are strongly encouraged to follow these practices effective immediately and inform your congregations about them to prevent the spread of the influenza/flu.
