  • Catholics rally at the Washington County Court House
    More than 40 people gathered at the Washington County Court House Monday morning to express their concern about children being separated from their families by immigration agents at the U.S. border. The court house was chosen as a site because ICE agents have been active there targeting Latino-appearing people. The vigil coincided with a weekly Monday 9 a.m. vigil that originated because of that ICE activity.
  • Bishops across U.S. condemn separation, detention of migrant children

    WASHINGTON — From Portland to New York City, the country's Catholic bishops have joined a chorus of organizations, institutions and high-profile individuals urging the Trump administration to stop separating children from their parents as they seek respite in the U.S. from dire conditions in their home countries, largely in Central America.

  • St. Vincent de Paul of Salem fueled by self-giving
    SALEM — On a damp winter morning, a white-haired homeless man stumbled into the offices of St. Vincent de Paul Society. He was soaked to his skinny core. Staff and volunteers quickly handed the shivering elder hot coffee and a plate of food. Everyone hustled to replace his dank garments with clean, dry clothes. Soon, he was outfitted, except for dry shoes. They did not have his size.
  • Graduation
    For four years, students at western Oregon’s Catholic high schools spend five days together every week. They study together, they play sports together, they perform together. They become a community. Then comes graduation — the last time many of them may ever see each other. This is part of the reason that graduation night parties thrive at the schools.
  • Graduation
    The University of Portland celebrated its commencement last month with nearly 1,200 graduates earning degrees — making the class of 2018 the largest graduating class in the university’s history.

  • Working in a role dominated by women
    TIGARD — Stay-at-home dad: It wasn’t a title Frank Canepa expected. For one thing, he spent much of his adult life pursuing celibacy. On top of that, the idea of a man staying home with his kids isn’t really embraced by society. But that’s the life he leads.

Memorial Day Mass
“This is hallowed ground upon which we stand and upon which we celebrate the holy sacrifice of the Mass,” Archbishop Alexander Sample told the crowd. “It is our duty, truly our duty, to honor those who made that supreme sacrifice, to honor those who served our country in the armed forces, and to commend to the mercy of God all of our beloved dead.”
  • Reverence for our Eucharistic Lord
    Most Rev. Alexander Sample
    My sister who lives here in Portland watched on EWTN the Mass I celebrated at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on April 28. One of her comments (after she finished making fun of her younger brother!) was about how Holy Communion was received. She remembered with some real fondness how, when we were children, we always received Holy Communion at the Communion rail and on the tongue. No one dared touch the Holy Eucharist, except the priest.
