Archbishop's Retreat 2017

BEAVERTON — Walking into Beaverton Crossfit, Father Sean Weeks shakes hands with the coaching staff. They call him Father Sean. Wearing shorts, a T-shirt and his workout shoes, he doesn’t look like a priest. He’s not here to preach or serve but to take care of the temple that God gave him.

WATCH: In Old Town: New name, same mission

An agency that has worked to prevent isolation among residents of Portland’s Old Town has hit its silver anniversary.  

The Maybelle Center for Community — once known as the Macdonald Center — was established by Holy Cross Father Richard Berg. In the late 1980s, Father Berg was assigned as pastor of the Catholic parish in Old Town, home to a large part of Portland’s homeless population. Father Berg, a trained psychologist, told staff and parishioners that loneliness and isolation intensify the problems of homelessness and that community might be the way out.

The line between trust and neglect

Every now and then, I spend a few hours with about 60 high school boys and girls and their parents listening to them talk about better parent-teen communication regarding sex, alcohol and drugs. The question for parents that keeps popping into my mind as I listen to both sides speak is: "Where does trust end and neglect begin?"

NEW YORK (CNS) — The glossy crime drama "Live by Night" (Warner Bros.) traces the rise of Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck, who also wrote and directed), a Boston-bred gangster in the Florida of the 1920s and '30s.
