Colorful eggs were the prey recently during a hunt that followed the annual Indonesian Mass at St. Michael Church in Southwest Portland. The Mass and Easter egg hunt that follows is coordinated by members of the Indonesian Catholic Community of Oregon, a group of people with Indonesian heritage who share the cultural values of Indonesia.
Celebrated by Jesuit Father Wardi Saputra, Mass took place in Balestra Hall, and then the crowd headed outside, where the children were unleashed with their baskets to hunt eggs filled and donated by parents.
