Restaurant and Lounge
~ Pastor’s Message ~ Learning all about a rosebud, by Fr. Charles Zach, pastor
A young, new priest was walking with an older, more seasoned priest in the garden
one day. Feeling a bit insecure about what God had for him to do, he was asking
the older priest for some advice. The older priest walked up to a rose bush and
handed the young priest a rosebud and told him to open it without tearing any of the
petals. The young priest looked in disbelief at the older priest and was trying to figure out what a rosebud could possibly have to do with his wanting to know the will of
God for his life and ministry. But, because of his great respect for the older priest,
he proceeded to try and unfold the rosebud while keeping every petal intact. It wasn't long before he realized how impossible this was to do. Noticing the young priest's inability to unfold the
rosebud without tearing it, the older priest began to recite the following poem:
It is only a tiny rosebud
A flower of God's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly,
Then, in my hands, they die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
The flower of God's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So, I'll trust in Him for leading
Each moment of my day.
I will look to Him for His guidance
Each step of the Pilgrim's way
The pathway that lies before me
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.
Please join us in the Knights of Columbus Hall for Pastor’s Talks after the 9:45 Mass this weekend.

Quilt Drawing
Catholic Daughters are selling raffle tickets for two handmade quilts after the 8:30 and 11:00 Masses. You have
your choice of a large twin/three-quarter bed size quilt or
a 68” x 68” size quilt. Tickets are $1.00 each or six for
$5.00. The drawing will be held December 7 at the
Knights of Columbus breakfast. Proceeds from the raffle
will be donated to the Mt Angel Special Seminarian Fund
that helps the seminarians in times of financial hardship.
We just got our check back from last month’s Bottles
and Cans weekend. Thanks everybody for your generous donations. This time around, we pulled in a
very respectable $450. Students – thanks for your
hard work! Community – thanks for sharing with us!
Our next Bottles and Cans weekend will be in early
In a group discussion last week, members of our
Youth Ministry team were asked to name the ingredients it takes to make a good community. Here is
what they came up with:
Goals, nice people, being helpful, sugar, relationships, justice, animals, trust, family, diversity, faith,
peace, generosity, spaghetti & spicy meatballs, fairness, happiness, courage, respect, instruments, love,
leadership, tolerance, devotion, energy, emotion,
chocolate, empathy, communication, humility, collaboration, humor, honesty, team work, kindness,
friendship, effort, a wild card, open-mindedness and
I share this list with you, because it reflects the values
that we are instilling as the families, friends and supporters of our young people. Good work so far!
Now… the challenge ahead of all of us is to be and
to share the ingredients that our youth say they need!
(Except for the spicy meatballs. Nobody needs to be
a spicy meatball).
Also: Watch for Christmas Coffee and Wreath
order forms to be out soon.

Meet Sam Solano ~ New Organist for St. Henry
Meet Sam Solano, our organist/pianist. Sam grew up at Trinity Lutheran Church and
he continues to play for their Saturday evening service as well as playing for the
choir at Courtyard Fountains. He is an accomplished musician and known in the local jazz community for his talent on saxophone, flute, clarinet, oboe, piano and violin! Oh and guess what, he sings too.
It was studying Bach in a composition class that led Sam to sacred music. As he
says, “The way he (Bach) interweaves theology and music is remarkable and unprecedented.” The organ is now Sam’s instrument of choice. He hopes to pursue a
degree in organ performance and is also studying French with the hope of auditioning for a school in France.
Sam enjoys playing classical sacred music that might not be heard outside the
church, as well as accompanying the congregation. He likes interacting with parishioners of all different musical levels, because, “we all have a voice and gifts to praise God. This is the one place in the
world where all are welcome and invited to praise God with the voices we have.” Welcome to St. Henry Sam, we are
glad you are here.
Did You Know...
The first public Masses in Gresham took place in a hall above Gresham Rexall Drug Store. This store used to be located
on the corner of Powell and Main Street. We now go there to pick up our “Jazzy Bagels”.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
Care and the love of knitting and crochet
have been combined into a prayerful
ministry that reaches out to those in need
of comfort and solace. Many blessings
are knitted into every shawl. The knitter /
crocheter begins each shawl with prayers
for the recipient. Intentions are continued
throughout the creation of the shawl. If
you are interested in this wonderfully
giving ministry call the parish office at
503-665-9129 and leave your name and
number and a member of the Prayer
Shawl committee will contact you.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry is sponsored
by the St. Henry’s Justice and Peace
Ladies modeling some of
the completed shawls.

Parishioner Profile ~ meet Tense Marie
Hi, Tense Marie is my total first name and not my condition. Tense is pronounced like
the number ten and the letter “c”. I have been a St. Henry parishioner for thirty years and
have reared my five children here, and now they are doing the same. My grandchildren
Christian and Grace Maxey (twins that were born on my birthday) have been Altar servers for several years now. Lysa Morla Maxey (mother of the twins) and my other daughter Tracey Morla and I, have been Catholic Daughters since 2006. I have been teaching
elementary faith formation for 18 years. The last four years I have been home schooling
my grandkids. I have celebrated many religious events ranging from Baptisms to Weddings here at St. Henry throughout my thirty years. Now, I have most recently celebrated
another couple of events that I would like to share with my parish. This year for Halloween my costume was the American flag and my treat was my Citizenship. On October
30th, I became an American Citizen. My mother was born a U.S.A citizen but was living
in Guadalajara, Mexico when I was born. Due to a new law that was enacted from 1946 through 1952, I was not allowed the automatic right to be a citizen through her. Long story short, I have lived here in the states since I was three
months old and after 68 years I am now an American Citizen. Yeah!!! Along with this very joyous event, I have also
retired as of October 1st. I am now ready to begin the second chapter of my life, which was made known to me
through an extraordinary Spiritual Experience that I had 36 years ago; and one that I reverently celebrate each year on
that anniversary. While I have had many wonderful experiences and events in my life, none will ever be as life changing as the Spiritual Experience I had with Our Lord. It is the center of my being and lives in my soul every second of
every day. It is an experience I have shared with many kids, adults and non-believers. It has made me who I am now
and has afforded me the many joys with which I have been blessed. Please come and introduce yourself to me the next
time you see me at Mass. I always sit in the front row and I would love to meet you. May God bless each and every
one of you my sisters and brothers in Christ. ~ Tense Marie
