Bishop Feehan exists to help students know and love the God who made them, and to respond to their Creator with a heart full of love, and a desire to serve God and our neighbor. To accomplish this, Feehan orients each student in the fullness of the Catholic Tradition through studies and service.
The Bishop Feehan student is required to take and pass eight semesters of Theology. Each course is sequentially built upon the previous course.
Beyond this academic goal, Bishop Feehan also seeks to concurrently build a culture which supports and clearly expresses Gospel values, and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Therefore, students are invited to take part in a wide range of Campus Ministry activities, from peer ministry, to service opportunities, to a variety of prayer experiences such as retreats, Eucharistic Adoration, and daily Mass.
Prayer is central to the Bishop Feehan experience and for this reason, each day and class begins with prayer. This commitment to prayer gives weight to the truth that God is the reason why we exist and that without Christ we can do nothing.
At the core of Catholic experience is the affirmation of the dignity of each human person. This affirmation permeates the school. It is expressed in our mission statement which holds that each person is made in the image and likeness of God. Therefore we strive in all our decisions to treat each other with compassion, justice, and love. The Feehan family is a lived reality, a genuine circle of caring and concern for each other. To this end, Feehan is a school dedicated to reaching out to those in need. Service at Feehan is not only a graduation requirement, it is a commitment that begins here and, hopefully, will continue on for a lifetime, after students graduate.
Faculty and staff are integral in promoting the school’s Catholic identity. Each teacher at Feehan is hired with the understanding that teaching is a vocation and a ministry. We believe that if our teachers have and value an active faith life, they will be better able to help our students develop one.
Academics, community building, service to others, participation in athletics and extra curricular activities are all part of the Feehan experience. To be Catholic is to understand in a very profound way that we encounter God through each other, through the Sacraments, through Scripture, through prayer, through created reality and through the ordinary experiences of daily living.
