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.

The One Body Initiative

The One Body Initiative is back for its second semester!

Through this program, you'll find connection to peers through small groups, regular reflection materials, and resources for rooting one’s life in prayer. Framing this journey is a look into the call offered by the Gospels to remove the barriers that hold us back from experiencing God’s love and from loving our neighbor. 

Online registration for the One Body Initiative is now closed. However, you can still connect with a group by emailing ministry@up.edu
