Uncommon Warmth. Intellectual Curiosity.
Holy Compassion. Deep Beauty.

We are a progressive & affirming urban Episcopal congregation in downtown Portland aspiring to radical hospitality: this altar is open to everyone, and our cathedral doors swing wide to embrace people of many faiths and no faith at all.

 

Whoever you are and whatever you believe, you are welcome here!
