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.
We are a vibrant community of Roman Catholic believers who are animated by the Holy Spirit. We see the presence of Christ and to welcome and serve one another as we would Christ himself.

Gratefully,
Philip Waibel, OSB

January Feature:
Become a New Creation in 2017!

The Church teaches that faith is “to entrust oneself wholly to God and to believe absolutely what he says” [CCC 150]. This is to make an act of the will to repent and give your life to Jesus Christ. Many refer to the joy, peace, and conviction from this decision as becoming a “new creation” or being “born again”. In reality, it is the fulfillment of the effects of our baptismal graces where we were “born of water and the Spirit” [John 3:5].

God has no grandchildren, only children! He will not force us to entrust ourselves wholly to him and believe absolutely what he says. That is our choice. There is no greater New Year’s Resolution than to make that decision each and every day of 2017!
