Commuter and Residential Ministry

Heighten your commuter and residential experience!

Campus Ministry supports your commuter and residential experience through Presence, Partnership, and Liturgy in order to help you navigate the joys and challenges of college life; provide programs and opportunities for you to learn, serve, grow, and build community with one another; and offer opportunities for communal worship and prayer.

Presence

Our Residential Ministry programs connect live-in campus ministers, chaplains, and student volunteer leaders with residential students to support you and connect you with one another.

Partnership

Campus Ministers work closely with Residential Life professional and student staff and leadership to provide programs that help enhance your Fordham experience and create communities of responsibility open to spiritual growth and social action.

Liturgy

Many of the residence halls have Catholic Mass offered weekly, biweekly, or monthly. The schedule will vary so check with your Priest-in-Residence. We also welcome the opportunity to offer prayer services and interfaith worship. Contact your resident minister or liaison to discuss these opportunities further.

Resources

Campus Ministers and Chaplains live in residence halls to support students, partner with the residential life staff, foster spiritual growth, provide counsel and conversation, and build community. We also have Campus Ministers who serve as liaisons to communities who do not have a live-in minister. Meet our Resident Ministers, Chaplains, Campus Ministry liaisons, and our past programs through the drop-down tabs below.
