2017 ROE V WADE MEMORIAL RALLY AND WALK

January 15, 2017 at 2:30pm

New Venue - Oregon Convention Center, Portland - Walk immediately following the Rally

All parishioners are encouraged to attend. This year the rally will be indoors. Our children & youth will attend with their families as a strong unified witness for life. At the OLV 11am Mass that day there will be a special blessing given for those who are going. Those interested in carpooling can meet after Mass by the OLV bell tower. For those who would be interested in going on a bus (loading at OLV) please put your name on the sign-up sheet located on the vestibule table, or contact Jim Welsh, 503-440-7899. This will help determine whether we have enough people to get a bus. We will meet together inside the Convention Center. Just look for the 6 foot banner of Our Lady of Victory/St. Peter the Fisherman. For more information contact Joseph Salazar in the Parish Office.

MOTHER THERESA BOOKS AVAILABLE

Pick up your copy of this outstanding book at the vestibule table.  It would make a nice inspirational gift. Your free will offering can be left on the donation container.

Review from Publishers Weekly: "With her 'ammunition'        ( Miraculous Medals of the Blessed Virgin Mary she handed out) and determination to change the world one person at a time, Mother Teresa became an icon for charitable work in the latter part of the 20th century. Maasburg, an Austrian priest, came along for the ride as Mother Teresa's confessor and translator. His 50 stories ramble across several continents and through the decades, when this woman truly seemed to perform one miracle after another to get what she wanted and to build the Sisters of Charity into a worldwide organization. The stories of her ministry in the Soviet Union during the 1988 earthquakes in Armenia will be new to readers of the history of this amazing nun. 'Mother Teresa was a missionary through and through who saw God's omnipotence and love of Jesus at work in everything and everyone,' Maasburg writes. She stood down the popes of the church and even the Sandinista rebel leaders in Nicaragua as she built a religious family that consisted of five congregations and 592 houses. This is a book for readers who want an intimate portrait of a saint in the Catholic Church."

PLEDGE GOAL FOR OUR FAMILY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR

We are only at 1/3 of our pledge goal. Help us keep this position for the coming year!

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR PLEDGE

We were blessed to have started our Religious Education ministry with an experienced and dedicated individual. This position has grown to now include the responsibilities of bulletin editor, Liturgy Committee chairman, Adult Education classes, RCIA, as well as assist in marriage preparation. We committed to this ministry initially for at least 5 years. The first fiscal quarter revenues for the Educational Coordinator, however, fell short of our budgeted goal. To ensure that we meet our commitment, please fill out the pledge card dedicated to the Family Religious Education Program which is available in the pews and can also be printed out here: pledge card available here and return it to the parish office or donate online by entering an amount in the "Religious Coordinator Fund" box here: Donate Online. We need everyone's commitment to fund this essential part of our parish's Spiritual life.

A FUN AND EASY WAY TO SERVE THE CHURCH

We really need hosting families/individuals to set up and clean up our coffee and doughnuts after 11am Mass. It is NOT difficult or time consuming and we will train and give easy directions! Please call the parish office at 503-738-6161

PARISH UPDATE

We want to keep you fully informed of our financial needs in managing the Parish and its ministries. Thank you for your generosity! We ended the first fiscal quarter with weekly offertory collections ahead of budget. However, in the Stewardship pledge campaign we have only received a very small percentage of pledges. We need our parish to respond to this important need.

WHY THE STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE IS SO IMPORTANT

Consider the following example. Your employer tells you that he is going to pay you, but he doesn?t tell you how much. So you work each week and at the end of the week he hands you a pay check. There was no way you could budget for your family needs. Well, that is how a parish operates when it doesn't know what it might receive from week to week. By making an annual Stewardship pledge, it enables the parish to have a better idea of the expected revenues for the coming year. Without a pledge, we only guess!

LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS

LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS, EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, LECTORS AND ALTAR SERVERS. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE 503-738-6161 OR CHRIS ROSE 503-738-3221
