OREGON CITY — The Kaminski children, Hope, Grace and Chas, are all altar servers at their family’s parish, St. John the Apostle here. All three also attended the parish school. Just before the oldest, Hope, went off to Carroll College in Montana, the siblings gathered together to serve Mass.

“When you have an 18-year-old, a 16-year-old and a 13-year-old in the household, having them at the same place at any given time is a blessing,” says their mother, Rachel Kaminski.
