Travel brings gratitude for home
When Lindy McDonald, pastoral council president at St. Philip Benizi Parish in Oregon City, visited Australia last summer she was excited, thinking she’d find even stronger faith communities than she was familiar with here in Oregon. That’s because she had left a strong Catholic Australian culture as a 19-year-old to come to the United States.

New year, new name

Historic St. Patrick's: weddings and prayer tips
Summers bring weddings every week to Portland’s oldest church, photogenic St. Patrick’s. The staff still thinks about already or not-yet-married parishioners, though. They offered some tips for staying in spiritual shape this summer in the bulletin, beginning with a quote from Pope John Paul II: “… only in silence does man succeed in hearing in the depth of his conscience the voice of God, which really makes him free. And vacations can help us rediscover and cultivate this indispensable interior dimension of human life.”
Tips included the importance of continuing to go to Confession at least once a month, wherever you are.

Archbishop Howard School to change name

Holy Name welcomes visitors
Coquille, although only four miles from the coast as the crow flies, is 18 miles from the sea by road and probably 25 miles by way of the Coquille River. That means that summer doesn’t pack the town with tourists. In fact, says Lori Gunther, parish secretary, the town empties out in the summer, since it’s a retirement community. That means there are always plenty of places in the pews for the 6 p.m. Sunday Mass at Holy Name Church. “We welcome visitors,” says Gunther.
