The first stop on my trip to the Pacific Northwest was in Portland and St. Peter. I was there to experience the Mass in American Sign Language and learn of the experiences of the deaf community.
I can’t link video here, but there’s a shot of Father Raul signing on my Facebook page, which you can find by searching for 52 Masses (I hope). As you can imagine, this is highly appreciated by the members of the deaf community there.
Portland kicked off a whirlwind trek around the top left corner of the country, a beautiful area I had never visited before. Now, the only state remaining on my lifetime U.S. checklist is Alaska, which I’ll hit in a few months’ time.
I’m down to just 16 Mass visits remaining. Thanks for following along.
