Mission Statement

Campus Ministry anchors the life of the University of Portland community in the knowledge of God's presence. Our concern for the dignity of every human being as God's cherished child directs us to assist all members of the University community to discover the deepest longing in their lives. Formed in the tradition of the Congregation of Holy Cross, we share in the University's central goal of educating the heart and mind. Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, we respect and seek to nurture the faith development of Catholics, other Christians and all who seek God with a sincere heart. 

About the Congregation of Holy Cross:

The brothers and priests of the Congregation of Holy Cross have served and lived at the University of Portland since 1902. This community of Catholic, apostolic men work to make God known, loved and served in education, parish and mission ministries around the world. Their presence at the University in classrooms, residence halls, chapels and administrative offices, as well as the presence of many women and men who also serve the University’s mission, provides ready access to opportunities for students, faculty and staff to grow in faith and service.
