My name is Deacon Jose Gonzalez, I am the Pastoral Assistant for Pastoral care here at St. Joseph Catholic Church. I was ordinated in the Archdioseces of Portland on October 29th, 2011, by Archbishop John G. Vlazny. I serve as a volunteer in some parishes in the Portland area and the Diocese of Baker but mainly at Saint Anne Parish in Portland OR since 1999 until 2011 when I become an employee.
I have been at St. Joseph since July 2021.
Please feel free to contact me any time.
