Regarding “A new golden rule for seniors,” Nov. 15, Page 1 and “Mass missed,” Dec. 20, Page 27:

It was so inspiring to read about the senior activities at St. Peter Parish in Southeast Portland and to read Father Raul Marquez’s letter reminding us that the Mass is the focal point of the get-togethers. It was good to see the picture of Father Raul being there. When the priest is there it means so much to the parish. We also had a monthly noon potluck at St Boniface in Sublimity and our pastor, Father Paul Jeyamani, would first offer Mass. We have much to be thankful for.
