Deacon Boyscout proclaimed the Gospel in Cup’ik, the dialect of Central Alaskan Yupiks. Fairbanks is the only U.S. diocese still considered a mission territory. It encompasses 410,000 square miles. Just less than 10 percent of its population is Catholic. (CNS photo/JR Ancheta) (Aug. 13, 2012) See FAIRBANKS to come.
