Wednesday Rosary Join Archbishop Sample on Wednesday at Noon (April 1) as he leads a bi-lingual (English & Spanish) Rosary LIVE from the Pastoral Center chapel. Find it on the Archdiocesan Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/archdpdx/
**A collection will be taken up before the procession. Please remain in your cars and the basket will come to you. Contributions can also be placed in the basket in the sanctuary when coming to confession.**
FOR ADORATION: Adoration will take place under the canopy of the entrance to the office chapel (the far right of the office). You may adore Our Lord from your car, or if you would like to come closer, simply be sure that there is wide distance between you and anyone else.
FOR CONFESSIONS: Please pull up in your car and, if you are in line for confession, STAY IN YOUR CAR OR NEAR IT. You may walk around if you are not next in line, but maintain SOCIAL DISTANCE. PLEASE DO NOT CONGREGATE WITH OTHERS. Someone will direct you FROM YOUR CAR to come to the church. When it is your turn, come through the front door. Fr. Clifton will be sitting in the sanctuary with his back to you. You may stand or kneel. If you kneel, please disinfect the altar rail (disinfectant will be provided). Use the hand sanitizer provided. Leave through the front door. PLEASE DO NOT STAY IN THE CHURCH TO DO YOUR PENANCE.
FOR THE PROCESSION: Please STAY IN YOUR PARKED CAR unless directed to do otherwise. The procession will go around the parking lot and, if necessary, up along the street. If you would like a copy of the chant in Latin, simply email me or let us know when you arrive. The procession be coming out of the church during the Litany of the Saints. If the weather is bad, the procession will only take place inside the church and only the two chanters, the server and Fr. Clifton will be permitted inside. Let's pray that the weather is good!
Bringing snacks, coffee etc. is recommended since there will be no food or drinks available in the hall, nor will people be permitted in the hall except to use the restroom.
Further Information Masses will not be celebrated publicly and all are currently dispensed from attending Holy Mass. We do not have the equipment or internet speed necessary to livestream Masses. 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. Fr. Clifton has been and will continue to offer the Holy Mass privately.
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.
Unfortunately, we cannot have distribution of Holy Communion at this time. 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.
Confession dates and times will be announced on this page.
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. Clifton will call you back.
Baptisms will be celebrated as needed but with no more than ten people in attendance (Priest, server, parents, godparents and up to four more people for a total of ten). Social distancing must be maintained.
Please email Fr. Clifton if you have any other questions at email@example.com
