A good day for the Grotto, in Northeast Portland, for the St. John Fisher kids, from the opposite part of town.
A good day for the Grotto, in Northeast Portland, for the St. John Fisher kids, from the opposite part of town.
Eighth graders from St. John Fisher School in Southwest Portland made a pilgrimage to the Grotto March 18. They learned about the famous sanctuary and St. Peregrine, the medieval Servite friar who became the patron saint of those who suffer from cancer.
Servite Fathers Jack Topper and Alvin Cabacang told the students about St. Peregrine’s story, his significance and the history of the Servites.
