Campus Ministry New Student Welcome Message

Welcome New Students!

Welcome new students! We in Campus Ministry are excited that you will be joining us this week. We invite you to GO F.A.R. with Campus Ministry by participating in our programs and ministries surrounding Faith, Action, and Reflection. Rooted in the Fordham University Catholic, Jesuit identity, Campus Ministry accompanies students of all spiritual backgrounds in their own personal growth. Our initiatives will engage your heart and mind as you explore what you believe and discover how that informs who you hope to become.

Our thriving student-led programs include liturgical and music ministries, spiritual retreats, and service projects with the Pedro Arrupe Volunteers. Join a Christian Life Community or Praise and Worship to nourish your faith and explore Ignatian spirituality, or take advantage of our multifaith ministries, which include Muslim, Jewish, Orthodox Christian, and other Christian student organizations. Campus Ministry is committed to enriching the spiritual and religious lives of all students, of any faith or background.

You will be receiving a letter and our updated brochure in the mail in early August, but mark your calendars now for a few of our upcoming events!
