We decided to spend our Easter on a long journey to visit The Grotto in Portland, Oregon.
We attended the Good Friday liturgy. It was an experience and you would have thought that you were in the Philippines with all the Filipinos from British Columbia that attended that particular mass. It was a standing room for us even if we were a good 20 minutes early entering the church.
I especially loved the lifelike sculpture near the church's gift shop. It was eerie how real it looks despite the glass enclosure.
