  • Abuse allegation against Cardinal McCarrick found credible

    WASHINGTON — Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, retired archbishop of Washington, said he will no longer exercise any public ministry "in obedience" to the Vatican after an allegation he abused a teenager almost 50 years ago has been found credible.

  • Catholics rally at the Washington County Court House
    More than 40 people gathered at the Washington County Court House Monday morning to express their concern about children being separated from their families by immigration agents at the U.S. border. The court house was chosen as a site because ICE agents have been active there targeting Latino-appearing people. The vigil coincided with a weekly Monday 9 a.m. vigil that originated because of that ICE activity.
  • Bishops across U.S. condemn separation, detention of migrant children

    WASHINGTON — From Portland to New York City, the country's Catholic bishops have joined a chorus of organizations, institutions and high-profile individuals urging the Trump administration to stop separating children from their parents as they seek respite in the U.S. from dire conditions in their home countries, largely in Central America.

  • St. Vincent de Paul of Salem fueled by self-giving
    SALEM — On a damp winter morning, a white-haired homeless man stumbled into the offices of St. Vincent de Paul Society. He was soaked to his skinny core. Staff and volunteers quickly handed the shivering elder hot coffee and a plate of food. Everyone hustled to replace his dank garments with clean, dry clothes. Soon, he was outfitted, except for dry shoes. They did not have his size.
  • Graduation
    For four years, students at western Oregon’s Catholic high schools spend five days together every week. They study together, they play sports together, they perform together. They become a community. Then comes graduation — the last time many of them may ever see each other. This is part of the reason that graduation night parties thrive at the schools.

  • Catholic Youth Organization chaperones, DJ make annual dance great

    A Friday last month marked the start of a great migration. Centered on the banks of the Willamette River at historic Oaks Park, hundreds could be seen moving in formation to musical rhythm.

    Many Portland area residents, like MaryAnn and Bryan Stewart, have been gathering in this same spot for more than a decade to witness the event.

    Salmon? Canadian geese?

    Nope. Catholic Youth Organization dancers.

  • Weapons of mass distraction
    VATICAN CITY (CNS) — From the moment of his election, Pope Francis' down-to-earth take on communicating the Gospel has led to countless front-page headlines either praising or criticizing him. But his disarming and sometimes even blunt style also has meant he has become a popular target of "fake news."

Memorial Day Mass
“This is hallowed ground upon which we stand and upon which we celebrate the holy sacrifice of the Mass,” Archbishop Alexander Sample told the crowd. “It is our duty, truly our duty, to honor those who made that supreme sacrifice, to honor those who served our country in the armed forces, and to commend to the mercy of God all of our beloved dead.”
  • Reverence for our Eucharistic Lord
    Most Rev. Alexander Sample
    My sister who lives here in Portland watched on EWTN the Mass I celebrated at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on April 28. One of her comments (after she finished making fun of her younger brother!) was about how Holy Communion was received. She remembered with some real fondness how, when we were children, we always received Holy Communion at the Communion rail and on the tongue. No one dared touch the Holy Eucharist, except the priest.
