MASS SIGN UP CHANGE - With the most recent gathering restrictions we can now have up to 75 people at each Mass. We will continue to check in at the door using a master list. For the Sunday morning Mass please continue to call in or email to sign up. For Saturday evening Masses and Holy Days you do not need to sign up because these Masses typically draw fewer than 75 people. Thank you for your patience with these ever changing sign up procedures. Call, 503-633-4611 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
IMMACULATE CONCEPTION HOLY DAY VIGIL MASS, MONDAY, DECEMBER 7, 6:00 PM. No need to sign up for this Mass in advance.
EDWARD MURPHY, FATHER OF MICHAEL & BILL MURPHY, PASSED AWAY LAST WEEKEND. Please keep Edward and his family in your prayers.
RETIREMENT FUND FOR RELIGIOUS COLLECTION - "Every dollar makes a difference in covering our expenses," says a Trappist abbot. Hundreds of US religious communities struggle to provide for aging members because most senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests served for little pay. Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious helps these communities bridge the gap, offering support for medications, nursing care, and other necessities. Please be generous.
