Welcome to the St. Agatha Parish and School Websites! I hope you enjoy what you see and read.
At this time of year, many of us are thinking ahead to the opening day of St. Agatha School. There is always a great transformation in the parish when the children and teachers return to their classrooms. I’m very happy to say that enrollment continues to be high. Our school keeps improving its curriculum despite the usual challenges. This year we are proud to be in partnership with the University of Portland in our Learning Center. The School of Education has placed an intern at St. Agatha, the first elementary school to receive this support in the Archdiocese!
As a parish we have a great deal to thank God for! Not only is our school thriving, but so are our outreach programs to those in need, our St. Vincent de Paul chapter and the Thrifty Cottage. The Adoration Chapel (open 24/7) is a mainstay ministry of prayer for our parish and beyond. Our devoted Altar Society, Respect Life Committee, Knights of Columbus, and new St. Agatha Men’s Group all demonstrate the spiritual vitality and good spirit of the parish. My hope is that every parishioner will think of him/herself as an ambassador for our parish, bringing the new evangelization – the good news of Jesus Christ – to all we meet.
If you are moving to our parish, or just thinking about it, we invite you to join us for one or more of our Sunday Masses. Experience St. Agatha’s warm hospitality!
May the Lord bless you!
