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.

Attending Mass on Campus

Anyone interested in attending Sunday Mass must sign up via this survey and receive an email notifying them of their acceptance before being permitted to attend.

Those who are interested in attending daily Mass (Monday through Friday at 12:05 p.m.) do not need to submit the survey but are required to check in with the hospitality minister at the front of the Chapel of Christ the Teacher prior to Mass.

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.

The One Body Initiative

The One Body Initiative provides weekly materials for reflection, connection to peers through small groups, 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. 

Thank you to all who participated in the One Body Initiative this semester. Registration for spring small groups will open in January. Check back soon!
