Golfers who want to support the Archdiocese of Portland and its seminarians can join Archbishop Alexander Sample later this month for an afternoon at Langdon Farms in Aurora, one of Oregon's top courses. The annual Archbishop's Golf Invitational is set for noon-8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16.

The archbishop himself will play as parish-based teams compete for prizes and the bragging rights. The day snares the competitive spirit for the good and is also meant to build up the bonds of a strong faith community. Many intra- and inter-parish friendships are formed on the links.

A portion of the money raised supports seminary education.
