Bishop Chad Zielinski recently visited Nome, and KNOM studios, as part of a tour of parishes throughout the Diocese of Fairbanks, which includes the far-flung parishes of Western Alaska and the KNOM listening area.
Bishop Chad wants to promote healing and reconciliation for all victims of abuse. While in Nome, Bishop Chad spoke at length with KNOM about his and the diocese’s efforts to reach out to those who are hurting and to move forward in faith, hope, and genuine community. (You’ll find many of Bishop Chad’s remarks in a detailed report on knom.org.)
Bishop Chad also took time to bless the KNOM studios with holy water and celebrated Sunday Mass at nearby St. Joseph Catholic Church, in a service broadcast to thousands on KNOM AM/FM.
KNOM enjoys a cordial partnership with Bishop Chad and the Diocese of Fairbanks. The Catholic radio mission operates as a financially independent ministry.
