Welcome to Campus Ministry!

Campus Ministry at the University of Portland provides opportunities for all members of the community to grow in awareness of God’s presence and God’s invitation to communion. For Christians this includes growing in the capacity to know, believe and live out the Good News of Jesus Christ. This flows from our grounding in the Catholic tradition inspired by the charism and spirituality of the Congregation of Holy Cross.

In this time of uncertainty, Campus Ministry hopes to continue accompanying you in your walk of faith.

This page of faith resources will be updated regularly.

Need prayer? Visit our prayer request page! Our Campus Ministry team would love to pray for you.

See below for information about Masses and connecting with a Campus Minister.

Resuming Public Masses

The Archdiocese of Portland has permitted the resumption of public Masses on a limited basis for parishes and churches within its confines. Campus Ministry will offer the opportunity for members of the community to attend Mass beginning May 17th. No more than 25 people will be permitted in the Chapel at any time. 

Anyone who would like to attend a Mass must submit this survey to Campus Ministry. We will then contact you with information about the Mass you are invited to attend.

We also ask that you read the guidelines for signing up and attending Mass

Please note that the dispensation from the Mass obligation remains in effect and that Campus Ministry will also continue to stream Mass online. You may find the live stream link and worship aid below. You are welcome to contact ministry@up.edu or 503.943.7131 with any questions.
