For Thanksgiving this year, reach out to the Healthcare workers you know with a card, email or text, and thank them for caring for your community everyday, but especially during COVID-19. Here is a card we created you can print and fill out to show your appreciation! Below is a prayer for all Healthcare Workers:
Blessings for all of the healthcare workers.
We ask for blessings for all of the healthcare workers around the world. Please bless them with the rest they need, time for nutritious meals and good ways to relax and de-stress. Lift their spirits. Help them remember that they are not only saving lives but also saving our spirits by displaying selfless compassion and courage.
We pray for blessings on the families of all of our healthcare workers. Bless them with good health and protection from disease. Provide for all their needs. Comfort them in their times of worry. Be present with them when they feel lonely, isolated and scared. Encourage and hold them up with faith and hope.
We bless every employee with gratefulness and thanksgiving for their service to our community. We ask for blessings on each employee that they may be given the grace to cure sometimes, heal often and comfort and be comforted always.
“Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well”

Thank you!
On Friday, November 6th on the Keating Steps at Rose Hill and Thursday, November 12th on the Outdoor Plaza at Lincoln Center the Fordham community joined together for an interfaith candle lighting & prayer service to honor and recognize those adversely impacted by COVID-19. At Lincoln Center, Campus Ministry partnered with United Student Government (USG), Muslim Student Association (MSA), and Christian Lighthouse Fellowship (CLF). We give thanks to them in aiding our efforts to commemorate those affected by the pandemic.
Our community remembers all members of the Fordham Family lost this year, particularly during the COVID-19 Pandemic, and prays for healing of body, mind, and spirit for all of the sick and grieving. We as well reflect on the deep impact the pandemic has had on our New York City community, and more specifically our Bronx community. We keep them in our prayers to heal as a community and become stronger together through the process.
Join our Fordham community to pray for remembrance and healing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Recordings of our Interfaith Prayer Services can be found here: Rose Hill and Lincoln Center.
Fordham’s Ignatian identity calls us to be contemplatives in action. The Magis Minute series invites students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and community partners to discuss Jesuit mission and education at Fordham through brief video reflections.
How does Fordham’s mission invite you to engage with the issues of our time? How does being part of a Jesuit university inform who you are? How do you hope to set the world on fire? Join members of the University community as they reflect on these questions and more.
The Magis Minute series is a joint project between Campus Ministry and Development and University Relations.
Congratulations to the Class of 2020! Baccalaureate Mass will be available to stream on demand anytime starting and 6:00 PM today, May 15, 2020. Please visit the Baccalaureate Mass Webpage for more information.
