At Mariachi Mass on Portland waterfront, worshippers called to serve selflessly

Oregon may be home to both English- and Spanish-speakers, but now it’s time for everyone to speak a common language of selfless love and service.  

That was the message May 7 as Archbishop John Vlazny presided at the annual Mariachi Mass on Portland’s waterfront during the Cinco de Mayo festival. The retired leader of the Archdiocese of Portland is a fluent Spanish speaker and a well-known face at Portland’s Cinco de Mayo, which for 33 years has celebrated Mexican culture and Latino life — including the Catholic faith.

Combating untruthfulness today
Could the reason many feel down these days be frustration with not learning the real truth and feeling duped? If so, how might we combat these anxieties best?

The occasion is the solemn observ­ance of Mother’s Day, which incident­ally is a special feast at the Sanctuary, to which the privilege of celebrating a “Mother’s Day Mass” has been ac­corded by papal rescript.

Tips for parents

On the blog New Liturgical Movement, Peter Kwasniewski lamented what he termed “spiritual illiteracy” among many Catholics. Who can argue? I think most Catholics, myself included, feel they have an inadequate knowledge of the faith.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul
NEW YORK (CNS) — For better or worse, bathroom-themed gags have long been a staple of kids' movies. But the family road comedy "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul" (Fox) carries this trend to excess.

NEW YORK (CNS) -- Eye candy and escapism were the draw of the television series from which director Seth Gordon's action comedy "Baywatch" (Paramount) has been adapted.

Whatever success the show -- which began on NBC but had a longer life in syndication -- may have had back in the 1990s, it takes more than an ensemble of good-looking people running around in bathing suits to sustain a feature film.

Alien: Covenant
NEW YORK (CNS) — Once you've seen one vicious extraterrestrial gnaw its way out of a human body from the inside, you've seen 'em all. Or so at least the jaded — or squeamish — moviegoer might be tempted to think.

And yet, the success of the durable "Alien" franchise, which dates all the way back to 1979, and was last added to by the 2012 reboot "Prometheus," would seem to argue otherwise.

Community best part of Holy Cross speech team
I’ve been privileged to be a student at Holy Cross School in North Portland since kindergarten. In June, 28 of us will be leaving this school and I’ll miss each of them dearly.

We have shared many experiences together, but one of the most memorable has been participating in the Valley Catholic Speech Competition, a contest where students have a chance to show their public speaking skills in three different rounds: elocution, extemporaneous and impromptu.

At St. Agatha, school goes 'beyond basic education'
St. Agatha School holds graduation for 25 graduates at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 11, at St. Agatha Church in Southeast Portland.

For all students at St. Agatha, school days are full of choices.

It’s 1 p.m. on a recent afternoon: Eloise Moran is learning about the justice system in mock trial class, Lehua Morley is walking around the church taking photos for PhotoCampPDX class, and Ali Winslow is doing timed squats on a balancing ball during a high-intensity training class. No, this isn’t high school; it’s middle school electives at St. Agatha in Sellwood, where classes stretch the students beyond basic education.
