PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Portland Archbishop John Vlazny is warning Catholics throughout Western Oregon that the Archdiocese is facing "serious cash flow problems," and needs to cut $1 million from its budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

Parishes and schools throughout the western half of the state could be affected by the cutbacks coming from the Portland-based Archdiocesan Pastoral Center.

Vlazny wrote about the cutbacks in a letter distributed throughout parish churches on Sunday, which also updated congregants about property and insurance litigation in the Archdiocese's ongoing bankruptcy case.
