opportunities for ministry

In June 2007, we held a large St. Bede's Day celebration.  We had much to be thankful for – we paid off our mortgage, and it was nearly 50 years since the first Episcopal service was held in our community. 

In 1959, Fr. Wallace Bradley of All Saints Church in Hillsboro received a phone call from a group of Forest Grove residents who were seeking help in organizing a mission.  In early November of 1959, a parochial mission was organized.  St. Patrick was the original name selected by the group.  However, when informed of the name, Bishop Carmen vetoed the idea.  Shortly after, Dr. Russell Roberts, recognizing the location in a college town, suggested that the mission be named in honor of the great 8th century scholar, the Venerable Bede.

On the first Sunday in Advent, November 27, 1959, the first service was held in Price Chapel on the Pacific University campus.  Twenty-two people attended. 

We came to our present location in 1981 with a move from a small chapel mid block on Cedar between 17th and 18th.
