Clergy educated on labor rights
WILSONVILLE — Archdiocese of Portland priests active in labor issues have joined lay leaders to form a committee to help equip clergy to respond to labor problems — all in the context of Catholic social teaching. Called the Church and Social Justice Committee, the group focuses on issues they say affect parishioners, such as minimum wage laws, wage theft and the right of workers to organize.

Archbishop Sample's Column
An experience of the local church
The local church in western Oregon recently had a marvelous experience of what it means to be the Body of Christ in mission for the sake of the Gospel. When we use the term “local church,” we are speaking of the diocesan church under the leadership of the bishop, including all members united as one (priests, deacons, laity and consecrated religious). The experience to which I am referring was our Archdiocesan Pastoral Assembly.

A True and Living Icon
The Church must be ready and willing, as Pope Francis has exhorted us, to accompany people on their spiritual journey. But the Church must always remain faithful to her mission and to her Savior in proposing the path that leads to true happiness, holiness, peace and joy.

If only . . .
We need to see these “if onlys” as the particular cross that we are called to bear at this time in our life. It is precisely these crosses that help mold and strengthen us in our Christian lives and witness. These crosses are the path to true holiness.

Welcome one another

Lessons from the Woman at the Well
As soon as she realizes who Jesus is and what he means, the woman puts down the jar and goes into town to proclaim the Lord.

Let peace control your hearts
Our celebration is a pledge to unite men and women. It is a pledge to acknowledge our unity in the Risen Lord even at a time when our disunity is manifest whenever we read the daily newspaper or tune in the evening news.
