"...We believe in one holy, Catholic and apostolic church..."

Fordham is proud of its Roman Catholic and Jesuit traditions. These traditions stand at the very center of our mission as a University, calling us to reflect on how our education can be used for the glory of God and the service of our neighbor. We offer many programs that seek to enrich the spiritual lives of Catholic students. Listed on this page is information on how you can get involved.

Respect for Life
Respect for Life is a campus organization dedicated to living out the belief that all human life is sacred and must be protected from attacks upon its dignity. The human person is endangered at all stages by various psychological, political and socio-economic ethical ideas. The pre-born are destroyed in their mother’s womb. The embryo is used for experimentation. The aged and infirm are relegated to a forgotten and useless class. The state freely uses the death penalty, sometimes against the innocent, in the name of all citizens. Our culture is soaked in ideas that promote death and destruction. We must make a choice for life. For more information contact for find them on Facebook.
