Recent Happenings

40 Days for Life Kick-Off - With over 450 people in attendance at St. Cecilia’s on Saturday, March 1, Archbishop Alexander Sample honored us by starting our 40 Days for Life campaign with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. He reminded us that “it’s about all of you, those who do all the planning and those who come out to the Abortion Clinics for this vigil during the next 40 days!” The Archbishop also stated that “This effort of standing up for life is the number one issue that faces Catholics today.” He concluded with “even though I can’t be with you out at the abortion clinic, I will be with you in spirit and prayer.” Over 150 people then followed Archbishop Sample to Planned Parenthood for our kick-off. Marie Barzen, Beaverton Campaign Director, reminded people of the quote from Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director, now Pro-life Activist who observed that “when Pro-lifers were praying outside our clinic, there was an up to 75% no show rate!” This should give us all renewed resolve that all our efforts are not in vain. The Archbishop then led us in a meditative pro-life rosary, and after being led in song blessed all present. For more information, see the Catholic Sentinel article.

Crab Feed - Thanks to all who attended the 12th Annual Men’s Club Crab Feed on Saturday, January 18. Attendance of 383 was a record high! A good time was had by all! Thanks to volunteers from the Men’s Club, St. Cecilia School students and parents, and the Knights of Columbus. A big thank you to event Chair Bill Johnson, who plans, cooks and has been involved in everything else for all twelve years.
