Holy Cross in Oregon

Priests talking before MassThe reach of the Congregation of Holy Cross in Oregon isn't limited to the University of Portland. Independently, and through partnerships with student services at the University of Portland, the Congregation of Holy Cross works to address some of Oregon's most pressing social concerns: education, hunger, and urban-rural connections. 

Holy Redeemer Parish
Holy Cross priests staff this parish.  University of Portland School of Education students provide tutoring to K-8 students at this local Catholic elementary school and members of the Holy Cross community work with parishioners in the parish's confirmation program.

St. Andre Bessette Parish
Located in the heart of downtown Portland, Oregon, St Andre Bessette Parish has been serving Portlanders since 1919. Members of the Congregation of Holy Cross serve the parish. Downtown Chapel's ministries include several programs for the hungry and homeless including Brother Andre Café, St. Mary's Food Pantry, and the Maybelle Center for Community which provides emergency services, hospitality, and referrals to Portland's homeless.
