Episode 40 – The Fourth Weekend of Lent – Deacon Felix Garcia / Kelly Wetherald / Fr. Martin Grassel


On this edition of the big show, we discover how to give a voice to the voiceless! Deacon Felix Garcia, the new Coordinator of Hispanic Ministry for the Archdiocese of Portland, outlines the unique challenges facing Hispanic Catholics in Oregon and details his journey to the Deaconate. In addition, Kelly Wetherald, Development Manager of the Blanchet House, describes how she is guiding undergraduate students from University of Portland in writing and developing a short play called “HOME, a devised production” to give a voice to the homeless in our communities.


The Brew Crew is still observing its Lenten fast from beverage tastings so Father Martin Grassel of Benedictine Brewery and Mount Angel Abbey is back to explore the fascinating history of Catholic brewing and its growing role in the New Evangelization.
