Faith & Spirit
At the heart of Bishop Kelly High School’s community is our spiritual atmosphere, which sets us apart from other area high schools. You will have the opportunity to explore, challenge, develop, and live out your faith through our theology curriculum, campus ministry, liturgy, retreats, and service.
Lead by our Catholic tradition, we recognize Jesus Christ as the model of the total person we are seeking to become. At Bishop Kelly, we develop students to their fullest potential as leaders and as responsible citizens of the world. We are guided by a strong set of moral values, a sense of service and a love of learning.
Our three and a half year theology program encompasses theology, comparative religions, morality, philosophy and social justice issues. You also have the option of taking Bishop Kelly’s Campus Ministry class where you are able to enhance your own spirituality by spreading the love of Christ to others. By taking an active part in the Christian community at BK you can not only live, but also share your faith.
Once a month we celebrate Mass in the Carley Center as a whole student body. Each year, we have the option to attend a retreat with our class. Day Retreats provide a way to develop a deeper relationship with other members of your class, yourself and with God in a holistic atmosphere.
Through service hours, community service projects, and immersion trips, we are able to carry out God’s message and manifest his love here on earth. We believe that Jesus calls us to minister to our neighbors in the everyday passage of life.
Our programs are inclusive of all faith backgrounds and we seek to create a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in our Bishop Kelly community.
