The University of Portland was founded in September, 1901 by Portland Archbishop Alexander Christie, who purchased the property atop Waud’s Bluff with financial assistance from the Congregation of Holy Cross. Proud of our Catholic heritage, we continue to offer opportunities to our alumni, friends, and benefactors to nourish their souls.
On the First Friday of each month, we pray for our deceased alumni and benefactors at the 12:05 Mass in the Chapel of Christ the Teacher. This Mass is open to the public and no RSVP is required.
The annual Alumni Reunion on the last weekend of each June includes opportunites to pray together at the 50-Year Club Mass on Saturday and the All-Alumni Mass on Sunday. Please visit the Reunion Schedule to learn more about these events.
During the holy season of Lent, Alumni Relations partnered with Campus Ministry to offer a web-based presentation of the Stations of the Cross. This online gallery features images from the 10 chapels on campus, including each of the Residence Halls and the Chapel of Christ the Teacher.
