Welcome, Fr. Jeff Eirvin! More photos to come later!
Apologies for an informal photo of Fr. Jeff but it was a special one. It was taken last Friday when he visited with us and toured the facilities. Along the way he met Joan and Sue. It was Joan's birthday, so Father gave Joan a blessing, and we had this photo taken afterwards. What a blessing! Below is a brief bio about Fr. Jeff, taken from the Archdiocese website when he was the Vocations Director:
Fr. Jeff Eirvin graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) in graphic design and worked in the field of advertising prior to entering Mount Angel seminary in 2005. In 2007 he began his theological studies at the Pontifical North American College in Rome where he received a Bachelors of Sacred Theology (STB) from the Angelicum and a License of Sacred Theology (STL) from the Gregorianum. He was ordained a priest by Archbishop John Vlazny on June 9, 2012. Fr. Eirvin has been the Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Portland since 2014. He is Vice-President of the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors (NCDVD), Director of the House of Discernment in Portland and regularly visits parishes and schools to promote vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.
We also welcome Mr. Chris Schoning, our School Principal!
This photo was also taken on the same day as Fr. Jeff's tour. Principal Schoning was also on site that day, meeting with Marlene, one of our teachers. Welcome, again, Mr. Chris!
We Miss You!
NO masks required. You may wear one or not wear one, it is all up to you. We still have masks available if you suddenly change your mind. In other words, we miss you so please come and worship with us. We miss you!
We all wish the best for our children, right? If we do, make sure you make them aware of ALL options. It is our responsibility to let them know that exploring religious vocations is a very viable option that will lead them to a fulfilling life.
