Dear Friend…(February 2024)

This month Catholics face a seemingly paradoxical juxtaposition as St. Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday fall on the same day. St. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, romance, and indulgence, while Ash Wednesday is a day of penance, reflection, and spiritual renewal.

On a deeper level, though, these two days have more in common than we might think. Ultimately, both St. Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday underscore the importance of devotion, communication, and sacrifice, whether in our relationship with God or with our loved ones here on earth.

Fat Tuesday may be the day for Catholics to celebrate St. Valentine’s Day this year, as Ash Wednesday remains a day of fasting and abstinence.

Thank you for your devotion and sacrifice to help KNOM continue serving Western Alaska. We are blessed every day by your kindness, generosity, and most importantly your friendship. If you have prayer intentions, or if you would simply like to say hello, we would love to hear from you.
