About Us

Catholic Pacific College (formerly Redeemer Pacific College) enjoys a unique partnership with Trinity Western University, providing students with a solid foundation in the liberal arts, taught from a Catholic perspective, as they work their way towards an undergraduate degree in any one of the 45+ undergraduate majors offered by TWU. Students at CPC can concurrently pursue a Catholic Theological Studies Minor while undertaking their course of studies at TWU.

CPC's sections of TWU courses are taught at our building, nestled next to the Salmon River creek near historic Fort Langley. Over a hundred students currently call Catholic Pacific College home as they pursue their choice of degree programs at TWU. The CPC building has been affectionately nicknamed by students as the Catholic Pacific “cottage”, because of the cosy old house where we come together as a community.

Understanding the Relationship Between CPC and TWU

How does CPC work with TWU?

How does CPC work with TWU?

Catholic Pacific College is a teaching institute for Trinity Western University and is located right at the entrance to the university. CPC provides Catholic courses for the core curriculum, various concentrations, and a Catholic Studies Minor at Trinity Western University. However, at CPC, we offer more than just academics. We have an amazing community of Catholic students who are centred on Christ, and nurtured by the Sacraments on campus. Our Chaplaincy, under Fr. Lawrence Donnelly, provides Mass on Campus from Monday to Thursday at 11am, as well as Confession, spiritual direction, adoration, and catechesis. The student association provides activities and events to foster community and encouragement in individual growth in faith.
