St. Mary’s Cathedral is an active, diverse parish. We worship, work, and play together, and we welcome visitors with open hearts. Cathedral School plays an integral part in parish life. Various organizations and committees gather to enrich the parish community and to encourage many forms of outreach. If you are interested in joining our parish community, please come to any of our liturgies and experience our spirit for yourself.
Council members are selected by a discernment process. The council meets regularly to advise the pastor and staff about parish ministries and activities.
Parish members chosen for their expertise in accounting,law, finances, and maintenance regularly advise the pastor concerning the temporal administration of the parish.

St. Mary's Cathedral developed its first Knights of Columbus Council in 2011. By 2015, the Cathedral Council counted 60 dedicated members.
Following the founding principles of the Knights of Columbus - charity, unity, and fraternity - the Cathedral Knights meet regularly to support one another, and to plan various parish events and service projects. While all the members have busy schedules, they find that, with the support of fellow Knights, they can do much good in the parish and in the community. Knights can be found serving as lectors, greeters, security, and ushers at Mass; giving special attention to children's programs in the parish and beyond; and faithfully organizing paid parking for fans of the Timbers and the Thorns. (The funds from this service support many of the Knights' charitable works.)
