Welcome to Campus Ministry!

A very warm Welcome!  Let us be one of the many hello's you will hear from everyone here at Fordham. We are so excited to have you with us these next few years and we hope to make many good memories with you. Campus Ministry is a multifaith, student led ministry that is here to support you during your time here at Fordham.  

Together with you, it is our mission to build a community where you belong, where you are known, and where you feel connected to others.  We will do this by walking with you and sharing the spiritual riches of different faith traditions, coming together in common cause to address urgent human problems such as climate change, racism, immigration, and economic disparity. 

Campus Mininstry cultivates this solidarity in mission to help you discover and explore the deeper meaning and purpose of your life through programs such as Ignatian yoga, retreats (in our retreat house!), mass and liturgical ministries, choirs, interfaith programs, spirituality groups, service and justice opportunities, and so much more!

Hear from our Director of Campus Ministry, Fr. Lito in his letter to you about this remarkable journey we are embarking on together.
