Welcome to Campus Ministry!


Firmly rooted in the Christian Gospel, the Catholic faith and its Jesuit identity, Campus Ministry at Fordham University seeks to provide opportunities and resources for spiritual growth to members of our community of all faith traditions.  Fordham Campus Ministry realizes its mission by attending to the pastoral needs of the University through the celebration of Masses, spiritual retreats, devotional services, Christian life communities, ecumenical and inter-faith activities, faith formation, residence hall programs, liturgical ministries, spiritual direction, pastoral counseling and liturgical music.  Additionally, in cooperation with the Dorothy Day Center for Service and Justice and GO!- Global Outreach, Campus Ministry collaborates on a number of service activities especially on behalf of the poor and those in need.


We warmly invite you to stop by and see what may be right for you. ALL ARE WELCOME, RESPECTED AND VALUED


As a Catholic and Jesuit school, Campus Ministry provides numerous opportunities for celebrating Mass on Sundays and during the week. We fully support student participation in the liturgy and encourage any members of the Fordham community who are interested to become lectors, musicians, Eucharistic ministers, altar services, and ministers of hospitality. We also provide opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation on our campuses. A Greek Orthodox Chaplain, Father Elias,  is also available to provide programming and services to our Orthodox Christians.. Campus Ministry works closely with student clubs such as the Muslim Student Association, the Jewish Student Organization, United Christian Fellowship. and the Orthodox Christian Fellowship to support students of many faith traditions.

The music for worship at the University Church is vibrant and rich, and our choirs are always interested in receiving new talent. The Schola Cantorum provides traditional  music at the 11am Sunday morning Mass at Rose Hill, as well as on special oc­casions throughout the academic year. The Gloria Dei student choir provides music at the  8pm Sunday evening Mass at Rose Hill, while its counterpart at Lincoln Center leads musical worship at the 7:30pm Mass at St. Paul the Apostle Church. These groups utilize the talents of student singers and instrumentalists who provide a more contemporary liturgical sound.  All members of the Fordham community are encouraged to share their talents and are invited to join our music ministries.
