Lent at Fordham

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowl
Campus Ministry is always planning different programs and events, especially now that Lent is upon us!  Last week they hosted a Mardi Gras party for Fat Tuesday, where everyone was invited to gather together.  This annual celebration included food, music, and even king cakes from New Orleans.  The next day, there were a variety of Ash Wednesday services available at the Rose Hill, Lincoln Center, and Westchester campuses, making it convenient for all Fordham students to participate.  They also distributed Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowls, used to collect monetary donations for the organization throughout the Lenten season.

Fordham University Church
Next week there will be Ignatian Lenten Candlelight Yoga in Our Lady’s Chapel, located in the lower level of the University Church.  This prayerful yoga session will give students the opportunity to pray with body, mind, and spirit in the Ignatian tradition.  As for service, the Pedro Arrupe Faith and Justice Community has plenty of opportunities to help throughout the season of Lent.  They just hosted Soup Kitchen Saturday this past weekend, and will have another one this week.  Students can also help prepare the meals to be distributed on Midnight Runs.  There are countless ways to get involved and help out during Lent at Fordham!
