You are the light of the world.  A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.  Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.  Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father. Matthew 5-14,15,16



Acknowledging within the Church, the couples who have chosen to live a holy life committed to love, as modeled by  the newly canonized Saints Louis and Zelie Martin, the parents of Saint Therese of the Child Jesus. The purpose of this recognition is to honor these couples for alllowing their light to shine brightly. It is their time to be fed spiritually, to refuel their lamps, and nourish their souls; allowing them to return to their parishes with a renewed sense of vitality and joy.

We invite all parishioners within the Archdiocese of Portland  to write a recommendation letter recognizing couples who model similar virtues of the Saints Louis and Zelie Martin.

All recommended couples will be acknowledged formally in October 2016, at a Mass coinciding with the Feast of Saint Therese and the Anniversary of the Canonization of Saints Louis and Zelie Martin.
