Alumni & Parent Relations
For many centuries, the Catholic Church has dedicated November as a month of prayer for the deceased. Since its founding in 1901, the University of Portland has observed this ancient custom. On behalf of the University and Holy Cross community on The Bluff, we invite faculty, staff, alumni, families and friends to join with us in prayer again this year for those who have gone before us.
Please click this button to share with us the names of your beloved departed and we will remember them in our Masses and prayers throughout November.
For more information contact Sarah Kuenzi, alumni and parent relations, at firstname.lastname@example.org or x8696.
Alumni & parent relations moderates a community platform called Switchboard, which serves as a closed community space for faculty, staff, parents, students, and alumni to ask for what they need and offer what they have. Craig Swinyard, director, encouraged current Switchboard users to lean in to the power of connection. In these times of uncertainty, now more than ever, members of the UP community are here to support you. If you need help – or can offer help to your fellow Pilots – please reach out to your community here.
