Fr. Barita will celebrate Mass with Fr. Nick at the Masses listed below. These Masses will also be Fr. Nick’s last Masses at SPF & OLV.
AT ST. PETER THE FISHERMAN October 29th at the 5:30 pm Mass, October 30th at the 9:30 am Mass
AT OUR LADY OF VICTORY November 5th at the 4pm & 7 pm Masses, November 6th at the 11 am Masses
After those Sunday morning Masses, in the parish hall, you can greet Fr. Joseph and say farewell to Fr. Nick.
Fr. Joseph Barita, ALCP was born on April 7, 1957 in Moshi, Tanzania. He was ordained for the Apostolic Life Community of Priests Holy Spirit Fathers in Moshi, Tanzania in 1988. He first served in the United States in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, coming to the country in 2000. Then he was assigned in the Archdiocese of Portland as parochial vicar at St. Pius X in 2004. The following year he was assigned pastor of St. Birgitta in Portland and from 2010 until 2014 he served as pastor at St. Frederic in St. Helens. He enjoyed working in community parish life. “While in Africa, I was used to handling bigger parishes with large number of parishioners, same with Los Angeles,” said Father Barita. “Since St. Birgitta is a small church, with fewer parishioners and people, it is more like a family with wonderful loving people.” He returned to his home of Moshi, Tanzania in 2014 and will be back to the Archdiocese of Portland to start his assignment here. Fr. Nick and Fr. Joseph both grew up in the same town in East Africa and played together in the schoolyard as children. They studied together at seminary as young men. They entered the priesthood on the same day — July 3, 1988, in Moshi, a city in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Parishioners at the parishes they have served, love these East African priests not only for their holiness, but also their abiding good humor, warmth and friendliness. “Every day, without fail, Father [Joseph] brings a smile to the office,” said Gail Weiber, office manager at St. Helens. — Articles from CatholicSentinel.org

PLEDGE GOAL FOR OUR FAMILY RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR
We are only at 1/3 of our pledge goal. Help us keep this position for the coming year!
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION COORDINATOR PLEDGE
We were blessed to have started our Religious Education ministry with an experienced and dedicated individual. This position has grown to now include the responsibilities of bulletin editor, Liturgy Committee chairman, Adult Education classes, RCIA, as well as assist in marriage preparation. We committed to this ministry initially for at least 5 years. The first fiscal quarter revenues for the Educational Coordinator, however, fell short of our budgeted goal. To ensure that we meet our commitment, please fill out the pledge card dedicated to the Family Religious Education Program which is available in the pews and can also be printed out here: pledge card available here and return it to the parish office or donate online by entering an amount in the "Religious Coordinator Fund" box here: Donate Online. We need everyone's commitment to fund this essential part of our parish's Spiritual life.

A FUN AND EASY WAY TO SERVE THE CHURCH
We really need hosting families/individuals to set up and clean up our coffee and doughnuts after 11am Mass. It is NOT difficult or time consuming and we will train and give easy directions! Please call the parish office at 503-738-6161
We want to keep you fully informed of our financial needs in managing the Parish and its ministries. Thank you for your generosity! We ended the first fiscal quarter with weekly offertory collections ahead of budget. However, in the Stewardship pledge campaign we have only received a very small percentage of pledges. We need our parish to respond to this important need.
WHY THE STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE IS SO IMPORTANT
Consider the following example. Your employer tells you that he is going to pay you, but he doesn?t tell you how much. So you work each week and at the end of the week he hands you a pay check. There was no way you could budget for your family needs. Well, that is how a parish operates when it doesn't know what it might receive from week to week. By making an annual Stewardship pledge, it enables the parish to have a better idea of the expected revenues for the coming year. Without a pledge, we only guess!
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS
LOOKING FOR ADULTS TO SERVE AS SACRISTANS, EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS, LECTORS AND ALTAR SERVERS. PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE 503-738-6161 OR CHRIS ROSE 503-738-3221
