Archbishops and bishops worldwide are encouraged to appoint a liaison with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR). In 2013, Portland Archbishop Sample appointed Fr. Charles (Chuck) Wood, currently Pastor at St. Wenceslaus Catholic Church, Scappoose, OR, as liaison for the English-speaking CCR. Father Wood was born in 1960 in Washington, D.C. He graduated from St. Anselm’s Abbey School in Washington, D.C., and attended the University of Notre Dame, IN. He worked as a reporter before attending Mount Angel Seminary, OR. He was ordained at St. Mary’s Cathedral in 2000 by Archbishop John Vlazny. He is a member of the Brotherhood of the People of Praise; part of a lay ecumenical community whose members share community life and resources. His previous ministry in Oregon includes work at these parishes: Holy Redeemer, Portland; Sacred Heart, Portland; St. Henry, Gresham; St. Clare, Portland; and Our Lady of the Lake, Lake Oswego.
