Three sites have been chosen to celebrate Masses to welcome Archbishop Alexander K. Sample to the Archdiocese of Portland. Many parishioners were unable to attend the Archbishop’s installation on April 2. These regional Masses will provide an opportunity for parishioners to welcome him at a location closer to their home parish. The Masses are scheduled to take place:
• Tuesday, July 16, 7:00 pm at St. Pius X Parish in Portland
• Tuesday, August 27, 7:00 pm at St. Joseph Parish in Salem
• Tuesday, October 15, 7:00 pm at St. Anne Parish in Grants Pass
There will be a public reception after each Mass to provide an opportunity to greet the Archbishop.
The Mass at St. Pius X parish is particularly for parishes in the region of the west side of Portland, and Beaverton area parishes, Tigard, Tualatin, Lake Oswego, Wilsonville, Sherwood, Yamhill County, Tualatin Valley area, and Columbia County parishes.
