A.- We are hosting another “vaccine clinic” here in the parish on Sunday (9/12)! From 10am to 4pm, people may receive either a second shot/dose or a first shot/dose. The great news to report from our most recent clinic is that over 100 people were vaccinated that day! We thank the Oregon Department of Health and FEMA for assisting us, especially their team of nurses who served our community so generously. Don’t forget: a $100 gift card (which spends like cash, anywhere) will be given to everyone who receives a first dose!
B.- If you are unable to join us in person for Mass, please continue to celebrate virtual Parish Masses with us each weekend! These Masses will continue to be livestreamed on our YouTube channel. If you are able to join us, please continue to respect others around you by wearing a mask in church, maintaining a safe distance, and washing your hands.
C.- We are offering three Masses on the weekend: 5pm Saturday, 9am Sunday, and 12pm Sunday in Spanish. We will continue to livestream the 5pm Saturday and 12pm Sunday Masses (until further notice). There will be no need to sign up in advance for Mass.
D.- Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament has returned. We still have a few hours that need to be filled (between 8:30am and 8:30pm): please sign up after Mass or on-line or check out the “treasure box” at the front door of the office (a form is there for you to fill out). Thank you.
E.- For the rest of the summer, we will be receiving contributions for the newest features in our “cutting garden” – which is graced now by a beautiful statue of St. Joseph. On Father’s Day weekend we blessed the statue. We are gladly receiving funds to install flower boxes, lattices, shrubs, and plants. Thank you for your support.
