The Last Supper Chapel

Absolutely guaranteed to be unlike any other space in Portland, this awe-inspiring chapel is nestled within the famous Portland Memorial Mausoleum. Admire the hand carved wood altar surrounding a marble relief of The Last Supper and an exact marble recreation of Michelangelo’s Pieta and David (one of only three in the country). Honor and celebrate in a space as unique as your loved one. Many other areas can also be reserved. There are a total of seven chapel areas within the Mausoleum. With all of the available options, we can accommodate any number of guests.


For all Funeral events in any of our unique spaces, we can set up for a casket, table with urn, or a display of personal memorial items. All tables include white linens. Décor packages are available to personalize the space even further. The Sunrise and Sunset Chapel and the Reception Area are all equipped with large televisions to display slideshows of your loved one, family, and memories.
