Br. Lorenzo Conocido, OSB/Mount Angel Abbey

Boise Bishop Peter Christensen institutes seminarian Anthony Galati of the Archdiocese of Portland into the ministry of lector during a liturgy at Mount Angel Seminary March 16. 

MOUNT ANGEL — At a Mass March 16 in Mount Angel Abbey church, 32 seminarians were instituted into the ministries of acolyte and lector. This was a move closer to priesthood for the Mount Angel Seminary students, who are from 18 dioceses and religious communities.

The men were called to make a heartfelt response to their calling to the priesthood through ministries of helping at the altar and proclaiming Scripture. This is a traditional step for Catholic seminarians.

Evangelizing with rock
The auditorium at Jesuit High School is dark. Suddenly a strum comes from the bass guitar. The drums pulse. Green and purple spotlights flash across the stage. Daniel Oberreuter takes the microphone in his hands. His words are short. His notes are staccato.

“This is the song of a new revolution. These are the words of a new generation. One Holy Church founded by Jesus Christ. One Holy Church that will never ever die,” he sings.

Oberreuter and his Catholic rock band, The Thirsting, are performing “Universal Youth” on stage at March’s Rise Up Rally for teenagers in the Archdiocese of Portland.

Archbishop's column: One in charity
Back in November, I told you how excited I was to be a part of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Assembly, a gathering of 110 parishes and more than 300 people. It was truly a wonderful experience of what it means to be the Body of Christ in mission for the sake of the Gospel. The assembly set pastoral priorities for the next three years, including voicing a strong desire for the Church to continue to emphasize works of mercy in the spirit of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

Notre Dame professor says science and theology mutually enriched by dialogue

Science and theology explore fundamental questions about what it means to be human, and dialogue between the two, albeit challenging, enriches both.

This was the argument made during a March 29 presentation by Celia Deane-Drummond, director of the Center for Theology, Science and Human Flourishing at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. The professor with doctorates in plant physiology and systematic theology spoke at St. Martin’s University in Lacey, Washington, as part of the school’s yearlong reflection on reason.

Does scientific inquiry inform faith?

“Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve.”

Dogma-changing words made by Pope Francis? 

No. A long-held belief of the Catholic Church rearticulated in the pope’s address a few years ago to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences — and an idea supported by the majority of U.S. Catholics, according to a recent Pew Research Center study.
