Messages of Faith

Bishop Chad Zielinski recently shared a message and prayer for peace and justice with parishes across the Diocese of Fairbanks.

The message and prayer were read on the air to coincide with memorials around the country.

Listeners are invited daily to pause for reflection and prayer four times a day: starting at midnight with an opening prayer for the day, 8:30 a.m. for morning prayer, 3 p.m. for afternoon prayer, and during the 9 p.m. devotional hour. The evening hour features the Sunday Gospel reading, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and Rosary.

Additionally, Nome’s Fr. Kumar Pasala records weekly prayers and messages of peace and reconciliation.
