2. Stained Glass Windows of the University Church Were Donated by the King of France
Originally constructed in 1845, Fordham University’s Roman Catholic Church is located on the Rose Hill Campus. The University Church is the central place of worship for Fordham’s Campus Ministry.
The beautiful stained glass windows that are implemented all around the sides of the Church were actually donated by King Louis Philippe I of France. The University Church’s current altar is actually the previous altar from the Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Nolita.
