St. Stephen Elementary School, Portland, OR

The Sisters had left their ministries in Oregon City and St. Paul, Oregon, in 1851 when they moved to California. It was with great excitement that they returned to Oregon in 1955 to open St. Stephen’s Elementary in Portland. With Sr. Catherine Arnoldy as superior, principal and eighth grade teacher, you can be sure this school was off to a great start. The school closed recently.
