Stella Coeli Extirpavit/Star of Heaven As you have probably noticed, at the end of Mass we have been chanting the "Stella Coeli Extirpavit." This centuries old prayer asks Our Lord and Our Lady to intercede for us that the pandemic may be ended. There is a copy of this prayer and its translation in the Sunday bulletin. Included here is the music for this prayer both in Latin and in English (translated by our very own Ambrose Robinson). Click the links below to download and feel free to chant this prayer alone or as a family!

Further Information- updated For information about public Masses, please see the link at the top of the page. We do not have the equipment or internet speed necessary to livestream Masses. If you are not able or not scheduled to come to Mass, you are encouraged to pray along with the Mass on television (such as on EWTN) or to livestream the Mass from the internet. Masses in the Archdiocese of Portland can be viewed at archdpdx.org/live-masses and traditional Latin Masses can be livestreamed at www.livemass.net.
Please continue to treat Sunday as a special day dedicated to the Lord. Other possible activities besides praying with the Mass on television or an internet livestream include praying a family Rosary, reading Sacred Scripture or reading the readings for Mass.
If you are not scheduled or are not able to come to Mass, you are encouraged to make an act of Spiritual Communion. Here is an example:
My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love thee above all things, and I desire Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou wert already here, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee. Amen.
In case of a sacramental emergency where the Anointing of the Sick/Extreme Unction is required, please call the office and press "1" when the announcement begins. If there is no answer, call the office back and press "5." Please only press "5" if this is a sacramental emergency. If you are taken to voicemail, make sure to leave your name and number and Fr.
