Recent Happenings

Parish Picnic and Fair - Our annual Parish Picnic was held at the church on Saturday, August 13th after the 5:00pm Mass. Various parish groups had vendor tables available to give the picnic a Saturday Market type feel, with face painters, clowns, etc. Approximately 300 people attended, with beautiful weather.  A great time was had by all!

Father Charles Borho, Former St. Cecilia Pastor, Dies - Father Charles Borho died on July 9 at the age of 85 years after a fruitful ministry as a priest of the Archdiocese of Portland. Father Borho served as pastor of St. Cecilia from 1979-1989. The Office of the Dead was prayed here at St. Cecilia on Wednesday and he was buried from the Cathedral, Thursday, July 14 with burial at Mt. Calvary. Father was born in North Dakota in 1926, entered the Marines and World War II, and served in Okinawa and Northern China until 1946. He attended University of Portland, Mt. Angel and St. Edward Seminaries, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1957. Father Borho was a great priest. He affected countless number of lives with hope, reconciled thousands through confession, prayed over hundreds of dead as they left this world, and celebrated the Divine Liturgy for the people of God. May he Rest in Peace. Father Pat McNamee, Pastor.
