Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice

Support the 2019 Fordham delegation: the largest delegation at IFTJ!

Students will work to become contemplatives in action as they advocate for justice in migration and the environment in our nation’s capital.

The Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice is an annual gathering of close to 2,000 people from Jesuit institutions around the country who come together in the context of social justice and solidarity to learn, reflect, network, and advocate for a more just and loving world.  This year’s advocacy themes are environmental justice & humane migration reform.

All funds raised will support Fordham’s delegation by providing transportation, accommodations, food, and conference costs. These funds will support Fordham students in engaging in a weekend full of education and advocacy where they will develop knowledge and skills they can bring back to enhance the Fordham community and utilize throughout their lives.

Donate to support IFTJ!

Order T-shirts and Fordham Supreme stickers online, or stop by our offices (McGinley 102, Lowenstein 217).

We accept cash, checks payable to Fordham University, Venmo @FORDHAM-IFTJ, and credit card via our website.

Also, if 20 donors contribute to the campaign—with gifts of any size—we will unlock an additional $200 in support! Your gift can have a big impact on our efforts. 
Thank you, and please contact Erin Hoffman at ehoffman12@fordham.edu with any questions!

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.
