At Mass, Welcoming the Newies

Volunteers at Mass, August 2015

For more than four decades, KNOM has enjoyed a close relationship not only with the communities of Nome and Western Alaska at large but, also, with the community of St. Joseph Catholic Church, the parish that is only two blocks from our studios in downtown Nome.

It’s the church from which we broadcast Mass on Sundays when a priest is in town.

Last month, Father Vince Burns celebrated a Mass in which the parish officially welcomed KNOM’s newest class of volunteers. They’re pictured, above — Emily, Maddie, Mitch, and Laura — a few minutes before the start of Mass. Thanks to Fr. Vince, and KNOM board member Deacon Bob Froehle, for helping arrange this special event!
