Weddings at Fordham

Congratulations on your engagement!


We are happy that you have chosen to celebrate your Catholic wedding at our landmark Fordham University Church. Since the University Church is not a parish church, wedding preparations are somewhat different from those in a traditional parish.

The Rose Hill campus is located within the boundaries of the parish of Our Lady of Mercy on Marion Avenue, where your sacramental marriage will be registered.

Choosing to have your wedding at the University Church signifies that Fordham holds a special place in your heart. We want to help you in your plans to make your wedding as beautiful, memorable, and uncomplicated a celebration as possible. This will require your assurance to adhere to the guidelines in the booklet. We ask that you cooperate with us so that your family and friends may happily witness your deeply personal commitment to each other.

The Office of Campus Ministry at Rose Hill is the department at Fordham University that handles marriage arrangements for the University Church. For reservations and all other matters concerning marriages here, please contact us at 718-817-1272 or by email at

Our best wishes and prayers as you begin preparations for your Catholic marriage at the Fordham University Church, and may God bless you both at this important time in your life.

In the Lord,

Rev. José Luis Salazar, SJ
Executive Director, Campus Ministry

The Lord bless you and keep you!
The Lord let his face shine upon you and be gracious to you!
The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!

-The Book of Numbers Chapter 6, Verses 24-26
