Fordham University Church: Altarpiece

Main Altarpiece, Fordham University Church

During the restoration of the Fordham University Church in 1942, Hildreth Meière painted this main altarpiece. Every figure in the work pertains to a specific aspect of the university, including Fordham’s motto Sapientia et Doctrina, for which Meière presented “holy men and women from East and West who are role models for students in the pursuit of wisdom and learning.”

In the center of the piece, is Our Lady Mediatrix of All Graces, patroness of the University Church.

Magis Minute

To help us celebrate Jubilee weekend, this week’s Magis Minute features John Reddy, FCRH ’76, who is celebrating his 45th reunion year. John reflects on a lesson he learned from John Edgar, FCRH ’36, about the value of a Fordham education—and calls on our most recent graduates to do the same.
