We Welcome all our new students to Campus Ministry!

A very warm Welcome to all of you! Let us be one of the many hello's you will hear from everyone here at Fordham. We are so excited to have you with us these next few years and we hope to make many good memories with you. Campus Ministry is a multifaith, student led ministry that is here to support you during your time here at Fordham.  

Together with you, it is our mission to build a community where you belong, where you are known, and where you feel connected to others. We will do this by walking with you and sharing the spiritual riches of different faith traditions, learning from one another and coming together in common cause to address urgent human problems such as climate change, racism, immigration, and economic disparity. 

Campus Ministry cultivates this solidarity in mission to help you discover and explore the deeper meaning and purpose of your life through programs such as retreats (in our retreat house!), Ignatian yoga, mass and liturgical ministries, choirs, interfaith programs, spirituality groups, service and justice opportunities, and so much more!

Hear from our Director of Campus Ministry, Fr. Lito in his letter to you about this remarkable journey we are embarking on together.

    Welcome to Fordham, members of the Class of 2027!

    All of us in Campus Ministry look forward to your arrival on campus. Your joys and hopes, your fears and anxieties about everything in college are ours, too.

    The Ignatian spirituality that imbues us in Fordham will teach you to listen attentively to the deeper rhythms of your heart so you may come to know the truth, act justly, and love tenderly as you engage with the realities of the world. You become ever more your true self when your life is experienced by others as valuable, worthwhile, and needed. You grow into a "being-in-love."

    You can be assured that in our Catholic and Jesuit institution, we celebrate diversity and accept differences in self-identity and description as much as in culture and religion, family origins, and aspirations. Through encounters in conversation and service, we begin to recognize ourselves in the 'other' to create a new space where our "begin-in-love' can flourish.  

    We invite you to take advantage of the presence, services, and programs of Campus Ministry. You can also visit our website,, and follow us on social media @fordhamcm!

    Again we are delighted to welcome you to Fordham!

    In God’s grace and peace,

    José Luis (Lito) Salazar, S.J.
    Executive Director of Campus Ministry
