Education & Formation

Our common worship and service among the marginalized challenges us to teach other people about the issues of urban poverty, homelessness, mental illness, and social isolation. Our programs connect the Gospel to social justice for visitors, students, and parishioners. We educate people not only about the issues of justice but we also witness firsthand the consequences of suffering for real people in urban poverty. We attempt to remove the harmful labels our society attaches to others who live with the heartaches of poverty and loss. Our formation in Catholic values and faith leads us all to the love God has for every human person.


Red Doors Retreat

A retreat program for adults to spend a day asking questions and coming to terms with how we can begin to break down barriers which separate us from the “other,” to become mindful of the poverty in our own lives, and to grow in awareness of ways to volunteer in Old Town Portland.
