First Presbyterian Church was formed by a group of 10 immigrants in the mid-1850s and the current building was erected in 1887. The church is devoted to reaching out to and bettering the community through volunteering, providing child care and helping the homeless. This is just part of its extensive mission statement, which also includes fellowship in God's name. The magnificent church is also memorable because of its enormous steeple and historical appeal.
Tucked smack in the middle of Portland's downtown area, this 19th-century church is a wonderful example of Venetian Gothic architecture. Speakers, concerts and of course, church services are all offered here, but the grounds and interior can be viewed weekdays. The stonework is something to see, especially the magnificent tower and checkerboard-patterned walls. First Congregational Church is located near the Pioneer Courthouse Square and the Portland Art Museum.
This historical Lutheran church has graced the downtown area since 1891. St.James Lutheran Church boasts exquisite architectural detailing with windows of nearly every shape and size. Rather than just the one steeple that adorns most churches, here you will find several surrounding the large structure. The immaculate interior features a beautifully ornate sanctuary that needs to be seen to be believed.
Established in 1926, St. Mary's Cathedral has beautiful stained glass windows and murals dating back to the 1930s, giving it a grand decor. The nine panels depicting Mary's life add to that ambiance. The church also houses an action pipe organ built in 1904. Every Sunday after the 9a mass people gather at the Cathedral Center for donuts and coffee. Liturgies and masses are a regular hallmark at this cathedral. The parish also rents out the church grounds for wedding receptions and concerts.
