People of faith, in service with others.


 
WHO WE ARE


The Pedro Arrupe Faith & Justice Community combines direct volunteer work in
the local Bronx community with reflection, in order to discover the deeper implications of
community service and its connection to the student’s individual faith. As a Catholic and Jesuit
institution for higher education, we believe that all human beings are born with dignity, and
through the Pedro Arrupe Community, we work alongside our neighbors in solidarity. In the
words of Pedro Arrupe, S.J., “our prime educational objective must be to form men-and-women-
for-others; men and women who will live not for themselves but for God and his Christ.”

Campus Ministry invites students of ALL faith backgrounds to join us as we enter into
the struggle for justice with our neighbors in local parishes through a variety of service
opportunities. These include community cleanup projects, senior luncheons, conversational
English tutoring, soup kitchens, and much more. In addition to service, students will meet in
groups to explore the connection of service to faith and justice in their lives.

Our ultimate goal is to build community, opening the door for greater connections and
relationships between Fordham University and its neighbors here in the Bronx. Students will
flourish in the knowledge that not only did they give back to the community, but the community
gave back to them as well.


“To form men-and–women- for-others; men and women who will live not for themselves but for God and God’s Christ – for the God-Man who lived and died for all the world; men and woman who cannoteven conceive of the love of God which does not include love for the least of their neighbors; men and women completely convinced that love of God, which does not issue in justice for others, is a farce.”

Pedro Arrupe S.J. (Twenty Eighth Superior General of the Society of Jesus)
