If you think church is a place to visit on Sunday only, be prepared to have that idea challenged. At St. Henry one of the first things you will notice when you drop by the parish office during the week is how busy it is! Learn more >
St. Henry Catholic Church’s attention to religious education is an exception to the rule. Not only is our focus on children’s faith formation via classes and vacation bible school but we continue our faith journey with an outstanding youth ministry and confirmation program. Learn more >
St. Henry aims to share the Body of Christ in both our celebration of the sacraments and in the work we do in our community. Volunteers and prayer partners are the engines that drive the work of our community. Learn more >
A special thanks to everybody who made Youth Ministry's fall kickoff super fun! It was great to have everybody back again for the start of our year together. St. Henry offers a comprehensive Youth Ministry program for all students in grades 7-12. If you have a Jr. or Sr. High aged student in your home, get them involved in Youth Ministry today! We can't wait to meet you! We gather on Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30pm. In addition to our weekly gatherings, we also offer monthly social, recreational and community service opportunities. Register for Youth Ministry today!
Also... Confirmation Families - Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 18. This is our Fall Confirmation Adventure Day. It's an all day action-retreat activity on the ropes course at the Oregon Episcopal School. Paperwork is available in the back of the church. It's going to be an awesome day!
Saturday, October 25 - right after the 5:00 mass. Join us for bonfires, music, food, games, costumes, a jack-o-lantern decorating contest and great times with your faith community at St. Henry. Dress up and get ready for some fun!
We are now taking sign-ups for individuals, families and groups who want to decorate a car for the annual Trunk-or-Treat. Call Dave in the office to reserve your spot in the Trunk-or-Treat lot!
Does your faith community have a position on this year's elections? Yes! But, it's not quite as easy as picking a party or a candidate. Rather, we rely on the power of our own well-formed and educated consciences working in concert with a set of particular guidelines to look at the whole picture of our social, political and economic landscape. We seek the highest available good, rather than the cynical "lesser of two evils."
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops offers us a summary of these guidelines in their document "The Challenge of Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship."
