Our celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe on Dec 11 was outstanding. Many thanks to Melecia Torres and the Aztec Dancers for making it truly special. Also, a great deal of thanks to all those who serve on the Multicultural Committee for all their careful planning and execution. The liturgy was moving, the music was terrific, the food was outstanding, and then, of course, the dancing . . . WOW! Enjoy the pictures and video below.
We mourn the sudden passing of our beloved friend and parishioner, Evelyn Duran, who died on Saturday, December 3, 2016. And we pray for Evelyn's immediate family: husband Dado, and children John, Joanna, and JD.
Evelyn Pacubat Duran
November 9, 1959 to December 3, 2016
Arrangements are as follows:
Friday, December 9 at St. Charles Catholic Church, 5310 NE 42nd, Portland 97213
5:00 pm Viewing
6:30 pm Rosary
7:00 pm Mass followed by Reception
If you will be attending the funeral please know that, in the Filipino tradition, there will be a gift basket placed near the casket during viewing. If you would like to make a cash gift to the family, simply place it in the basket. The basket will also be available during the reception.
You can give them a card as well (or instead), but give the cash separately so that your gift is anonymous and the family will not feel beholden.
If you won't be at the funeral, but would like to make a gift, you can send a check to St. Charles Church and be sure to indicate "Duran Family Gift." The address is 5310 NE 42nd Ave., Portland, OR 97218.
As more details become available, they will be posted here. Or, call St. Charles Church at 503-281-6461.
