Save the dates:
On Saturday, May 23, 2009, at 11:00 AM, at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Portland, one of our seminarian at Mt. Angel Abbey/Seminary, Rally Bien will be ordained as a deacon . We plan to have a Thanksgiving Potluck Reception for him on Sunday, May 24th, 2009 at Holy Trinity Parish after the 11:15 AM mass in the Fireside Room. Fr. Dave Gutmann will celebrate the 11:15 mass and Rally will serve as a deacon for the first time. God's willing, Rally's brother priest from the Philippines might come and will concelebrate.
Everyone are coordially invited to these wonderful events and kindly keep Rally in our prayers.
