Our Retreat House: The Rev. Philip H. McGrath, S.J. House of Prayer
Fordham is blessed to have The McGrath House of Prayer situated on a beautiful wooded property in Goshen, NY. Goshen is the home to our many Campus Ministry retreats as well as retreats for other groups, clubs, and classes from Fordham.

If you are part of a Fordham group who would like to consider using the House of Prayer for your upcoming retreat, please contact Erin Hoffman O'Kane (, 718-817-4509).  Unfortunately at this time we are unable to accommodate requests from groups unaffiliated with Fordham University.

We invite you to join us for a retreat. Take some time away from the hustle of "The City" and rest in the quiet presence of God admist the beauty of nature.

Pouring out a thousand grace
s He passes these woods in haste
and having looked at them, with His image alone
clothed them in Beauty.
