Welcome to Campus Ministry!

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.
