(6/23) Summerfest Update

In light of the recent tornado damage to the 4 churches (Methodist, Congregational, Baptist, Epic), St. Patrick Church will be donating 25% of the proceeds from Summerfest to the Portland Area Ministerial Association for repairs to the churches. Donations will also be taken at the festival, as well as the Parish Office and the other churches in town. All Summerfest activities will happen as originally scheduled. We are also in need of volunteers. If you have 2-3 hours you are willing to donate this weekend, we would be ever so grateful. The festival runs Saturday 8am-Midnight, and Sunday 10:30am-3:30pm.

We would also like to stress that raffle ticket sales will be part of the donation to the churches, so please turn in your tickets. You can turn in your tickets at the festival, along with purchasing them onsite.

St. Patrick Church will be taking a collection for parishioners with damaged homes during all Masses this weekend (June 27/28), and a collection for the other churches during all Masses the following weekend (July 4/5). We have offered our facilities to the other churches, and the other undamaged churches have offered their facilities as well.

St. Patrick Administration would like to thank EVERYONE that volunteered their time and talents to help clean up Father Flohe Field for Summerfest. Many hands make light work. #PortlandStrong
