Message from the Pastor

Welcome! It is an honor and privilege to be in my fourteenth year as pastor of this parish. Over these years it has been such a joy to watch as people grow in their lives and faith and share it in prayer and worship.

Since the founding of the parish in 1881, Benedictine priests from Mount Angel Abbey, and sisters from Queen of Angels Monastery have ministered to the parish. Initially German Catholic settlers were served, and over the years, many others have come to call Mt. Angel home, especially our Hispanic / Latino members.

Our current records list over 1350 households and over 4200 individuals from 20 zip codes around the Valley. The Sacraments are celebrated in both English and Spanish. We have over 400 children in religious education; regularly we have 85 or more children preparing for First Reconciliation and First Communion; typically 45 youth are preparing to receive Confirmation; usually we have 25 weddings in a given year; and there are 35 Funerals. It is not unusual to have 150 Baptisms.

Clearly we are a vibrant community of Roman Catholic believers who are animated by the Holy Spirit. As St. Benedict reminds us, may we see the presence of Christ, and welcome and serve one another as we would Christ himself.

Gratefully, Fr. Philip Waibel, OSB, Pastor
