Services in Memory of Sydney Monfries


Dear Members of the Fordham Community – 

As we grieve the loss of Sydney Monfries, we recognize how important it is for us to be together. We gather to console each other, to remember Sydney, and to celebrate her life.

In consultation with various members of the community, including United Student Government, we will be holding two services in her honor.

The first, on Tuesday, April 16, at 8:00 PM, will be held in the University Church and Terrace. It will be planned and led by members of the student body. We invite everyone, of all faiths and commitments, to join us. For those based at Lincoln Center who are interested in attending, free Ram Van service will be provided. Please reach out to Conor O’Kane at cokane3@fordham.edu to reserve a seat.

Because some students will have already left for Easter Break, however, we will also be holding a second, more formal service next week. It will most likely take place on Tuesday, April 23, but we are still in the process of coordinating details with important parties. So please look for an announcement coming soon about a service after the break.

Of course, in times such as these, it’s natural to have a wide range of feelings, thoughts, and concerns.  It’s important for us to be patient with ourselves and to take care of each other. Members of Campus Ministry, Counseling and Psychological Services, Members of the Faculty and Student Affairs are available to support you in any way they can. So please reach out to us!

In the meantime, please be assured of our care and commitment to you, as well as our continued prayers.

Michael C. McCarthy, S.J.
