Upcoming At Fordham


A Remembrance of
Those Who Have Fallen

Fordham University will dedicate a Vietnam War memorial created last fall, in loving memory of 23 Fordham alumni who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in the Vietnam War. The memorial has been engraved with their names.

The recognition ceremonies will take place on Sunday, April 21 at 10:30 a.m. in “A Mass of Celebration and Dedication,” inside the University Church on the Rose Hill campus. Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham, will be the Mass celebrant.

Prior to the dedication of the Vietnam memorial, the Fordham ROTC Color Guard will do a presentation of the colors. The memorial, which was installed last November coinciding with Veterans Day, accompanies the current memorial in the church’s vestibule that honors alumni veterans of World War II.

Archbishop Martin has frequently addressed the problem of people losing faith and leaving the Catholic church, and will explore how the Irish faithful might build a new model for Church renewal. The event is co-sponsored by Fordham’s Center on Religion and Culture. To register, visit
