Good Shepherd in Portland to observe its fifth anniversary

Good Shepherd Church, 3511 Rudd Avenue, will celebrate its fifth anniversary on May 11 at the 11 a.m. Mass. Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz will preside.

A light reception of coffee and pastries will follow the liturgical celebration. The parish’s pastor, Father John Burke, said the celebration will provide an opportunity to consider “where we’ve come in the last five years.”

Good Shepherd was formed by the closing of three Portland-area parishes — St. Anthony Church on West Market Street, St. Cecilia Church on North 25th Street (where the Good Shepherd offices now are located) and Church of Our Lady (site of the new parish).

Good Shepherd also is celebrating the 175th anniversary of Catholicism in Portland this year.
