Welcome! It is a real joy to begin my 18th year as pastor St. Mary’s, a great community of faith which has such a long and rich history and is filled with such warm and wonderful people...
I received word today that some folks in the parish have been receiving e-mails and texts asking you to send a gift card or other donation because someone is in the hospital or other situation. PLEASE IGNORE ALL MESSAGES asking you to send gift cards or money to me for ANY reason. IT IS A SCAM. If you want to make a donation to St. Mary’s, please use your regular envelopes. THANK YOU—Fr. Philip Waibel, OSB, Pastor.
Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Based on a Prayer by St. Alphonsus Ligouri

Message from the Pastor
Welcome! It is a real joy to begin my 19th year as pastor St. Mary’s, a great community of faith which has such a long and rich history and is filled with such warm and wonderful people. Our parish includes the descendants of the German and Swiss Catholic families who moved or immigrated into the area beginning in 1867, the descendants of Mexican-American / Latino Catholic families who have moved or immigrated here over many years, as well as many individuals and families from other places who now call St. Mary’s their home.
Our Benedictine heritage of over 135 years comes from both the Monks of Mount Angel Abbey (from Engelberg Abbey, Switzerland), who were and continue to serve as priests; as well as the Sisters of Queen of Angels Monastery (from Maria Richenbach Monastery, Switzerland) who have served as teachers in religious education and in other ministries. Both of these Benedictine communities have operated schools which educated generations of parishioners. The parish was founded in 1881 with Frs. Adelhelm Odermatt, pastor, and Nicholas Frei, assistant.
We are a vibrant community of committed and active Roman Catholics. We have 1182 households and 3871 individuals coming from 26 zip codes around the Willamette Valley. The Sacraments are celebrated in both English and Spanish. You can see in the faces of the individuals and families of this parish the diversity and beauty of our community often referred to as “Catholic Central” by others in the Archdiocese of Portland. We got that name because of the parish, two Benedictine religious communities, as well as the Carmelite and Missionaries of the Holy Spirit formation houses nearby in a town of about 3000!
We welcome all as Christ (Rule of St. Benedict, Ch. 53,1) to St. Mary’ Parish and invite all for the celebration of the Sacraments, prayer, on-going faith education opportunities at all age levels and community involvement. Please contact for any needs and if you wish to register as parishioners.
