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 Portland this summer? Be a part of Alpha!

Have you ever wanted the space to slow down and consider what you believe and why you believe it? That is what Alpha is about: gathering with others in a space for exploring questions about faith and belief. We are offering Alpha in-person throughout the summer on Wednesday nights, beginning May 19th. We'll begin with the Student Mass at 6:00 p.m. in the St. André Chapel in Tyson Hall or you can join up at 6:30 p.m. for dinner in the Lund Family patio. The conversation follows dinner. Open to all current students. Sign up here!

The One Body Initiative

The One Body Initiative invites students to: connect with peers through small groups, engage with regular reflection materials, and root 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. 

You can find an archive of our One Body material at the link below.
