Dear Friends,

     What makes Fordham special? Its faculty and students? Its attention to individuals? Its international reputation and network? Its location here in New York at the world’s crossroads? It may intrigue you to know that Fordham University has long understood its primary distinctive mark to be its Catholic and Jesuit identity. To help the members of the Fordham family to continue to live out that identity is the essential work of Fordham’s Office of University Mission and Ministry, which is comprised of four main offices:

• Campus Ministry

• The Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice

• The Global Outreach program

• The Fordham Center on Religion and Culture.

     Our ardent desire is that through our common worship, outreach to others, service-learning programs, and ongoing conversations we will advance together with a deeper sense of vision and purpose as men and women for others!


Msgr. Quinn

The Daily examen


  • Become aware of God’s presence. Look back on the events of the day in the company of the Holy Spirit.
  • Review the day with gratitude. Walk through your day in the presence of God and note its joys and delights. Focus on the day’s gifts. God is in the details.
  • Pay attention to your emotions. Reflect on the feelings you experienced during the day. What is God saying through these feelings?
  • Look towards tomorrow. Ask God to give you light for tomorrow's challenges. Seek God's guidance. Ask him for help and understanding. Pray for hope.
  • Choose one feature of the day and pray from it. Ask the Holy Spirit to direct you to something during the day that God thinks is particularly important. Allow the prayer to arise spontaneously, from your heart- whether intercession, praise, repentance, or gratitude.
