From: Bishop Chad Zielinski
Subject: Assignments for Father Nelson Marilag
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
With our current shortage of priests in the Fairbanks Diocese, it is vital that all priests work in harmony and fraternal love to cover our existing ministries. In order to facilitate this, I am partnering priests to cover more parishes. Father Nelson Marilag will continue as the Parochial Vicar of Saint Raphael. Father Nelson will assist Father Kaspar with coverage of Saint Mark as Parochial Vicar.
In addition to serving the Parishes of Holy Cross, Aniak, Kalskag and Barrow, effective
3 January 2016, Father Nelson will also serve the Parish of Russian Mission. The rotation schedule will be coordinated through Father Kaspar and the Y-K Coordinator, Sister Kathleen Radich.
