Rose Hill Campus Celebrates Ignatian Heritage Week, Nov. 16 – 22


NEW YORK – Fordham will host the fourth annual Ignatian Heritage Week to promote the University’s Jesuit and Catholic identity and celebrate its distinct tradition of education, from Nov. 16 through 22, on the Rose Hill campus in the Bronx.

Initiated in 2000, Ignatian Heritage Week consists of a series of programs, discussions and activities intended to help Fordham students examine the life and work of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus. In addition to this month’s celebration, the Lincoln Center campus will sponsor a week’s worth of Ig-natian-themed events during the spring semester, January 25 through 31.

Throughout the week, there will be discussions on topics such as “Jesuits and Art in Asia” and “The Transforming Value of Service.” In addition, an open-mic night, a Jesuits vs. students kickball game and other activities will help Ford-ham students become better acquainted with members of the University’s Jesuit community.
