  • I was here for a wedding ceremony. It's a pretty church with gorgeous stained glass windows (the priest doing the ceremony said they were originally built for St. Patrick's Cathedral). A good size, not too big or too small.
  • A HANDSOME STRUCTURE, the church is nestled among other stone-clad buildings that give the Fordham University campus a harmonious unity that is wonderfully old school. The church is a good place to linger or pray or both.
