  • WATCH: Training for catechists: Begin by deepening divine relationship
    EUGENE — At regional trainings this summer, western Oregon Catholics who teach the faith heard that before they instruct, they must allow God deep into their lives.
  • The Catholic tradition in public health
    When Cynthia, a single mom living in Portland’s suburbs, lost her job, she didn’t know where to turn. She found her way to a community resource desk at Providence Medical Center and learned about an apartment that she was able to move into fairly quickly. Now that she knew about the resource desk, she returned to the hospital for advice after she moved into the unit, which was clean but bare.
  • Faith in Christ isn't professed in words but in deeds, pope says
    VATICAN CITY — True followers of Jesus profess their faith not through pre-packaged platitudes but rather through concrete actions of love for their neighbors, Pope Francis said.
  • Pope, in Sicily, honors priest martyred by Mafia
    PALERMO, Sicily — Honoring a priest shot at point-blank range by the Mafia, Pope Francis insisted that true happiness and a real change in Sicilian society will come only when people love and care for one another rather than trying to grab as much money and power as they can.
  • ‘God is foremost for Pat Casey’
    Pat Casey is so Catholic that the University of Notre Dame tried to get him to coach their baseball squad and offered some serious money. But Casey is so dedicated to Oregon State University and his family that he refused the offer, even while it might have been a dream for this member of St. Mary Parish in Corvallis.

    Members of faith groups and immigrants are teaming up for a seven-day march between two Oregon sites that are used for federal immigration enforcement.

Walkers will demand an end to zero-tolerance immigration policy.

  • A Simple Favor
    NEW YORK (CNS) — "A Simple Favor" (Lionsgate), director Paul Feig's glossy screen version of Darcey Bell's 2017 novel, is undeniably ingenious.
  • A both-and people
    No one can pigeonhole the Catholic Church. That’s a sign that divine genius is at work. We Catholics stand firm for principles taught by the Lord, but in practice that often means we are a both-and people.

“I am sorry beyond words for what priests and bishops have done to harm the children of God. I am ashamed of them,” Archbishop Sample said. “We have once again been confronted with the horror, sins, crimes, of those who are called to be loving shepherds of God’s people but have instead preyed upon the sons and daughters of our heavenly Father in ways that are inconceivable to us.”
The migrant's companion
“People say they don’t like immigrants but I always ask, ‘Who cleans your house? Who washes your dishes in restaurants? Who takes care of your elders?’” says Dagoberto Morales. “People allow immigrants into the most intimate parts of their lives. Then they say they don’t want them?”
  • Archbishop Sample responds to abuse reports
    Most Rev. Alexander Sample
    Like many of you, I was shocked, angered, and discouraged by the recent revelations concerning former Cardinal and retired Archbishop of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick. Then, on the eve of the Feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother, came the release of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report on clergy sex abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, covering more than seven decades. These horrific revelations are particularly painful in light of what victims in our own Archdiocese have suffered and the impact that sexual abuse has had on the Church here in western Oregon. I am sorry beyond words for the harm that has been done.
