We meet monthly on the first Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm every month September through May (unless there is a schedule conflict with the parish). Please check our calendar or email us to confirm the meeting time. We meet at Holy Rosary Parish located at 375 NE Clackamas St Portland, OR 9723 in Siena Hall. Siena Hall is on the North side of the church proper. Once you are in the parking lot you can’t miss it. Please note that the parking lot is accessed from 3rd Street.
Please arrive a little bit before 7:00 and introduce yourself. Also we do lock the doors once the meeting starts – so if you are late don’t be afraid to bang a bit. We meet in the room directly across from the front doors. You will see a statue of St Therese the Little Flower take the door to the right of her.
Most meetings are centered around a theme. We often ask one of our members or a member of the community to speak on a specific topic. Sometimes we have panel discussions, sometimes the meeting is open floor discussion. Very rarely there are disagreements. We are people of passion and conviction – if you happen to stumble on one of these meetings please don’t take that as our normal temperature. If you are super brave you can even venture into the debate. We have families who have homeschooled over a decade, some who are second generation homeschoolers and others who are relatively new all sharing our collective wisdom with each other.
We do not have childcare at the moment for these meetings (but we are looking into providing it in the future). Babies are always welcome and we are a nursing friendly community. We normally have light refreshments, tea, decaff coffee and the like. Introduce yourself to anyone and we will be happy to get you pointed in the right direction.
