  • 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

  • Father's Day
    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.
  • Book examines Catholic music in ‘70s and ‘80s

“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.
