Signifies Honors, Advanced, or AP Course offering
Theology Department faculty strive to transmit, faithfully, the genuine message of Christ and the authentic teaching of the Church.
Students are introduced to the school’s Felician Core Values with a course in the freshman year. These values are put into action throughout a student’s four years at OLSH. As seniors, students demonstrate a deeper understanding of the values through the Senior Seminar: Felician Values Fulfilled.
OLSH traditionally holds a Eucharistic Procession on the school grounds each year, beginning with Eucharistic adoration and concluding with Benediction.
Students develop their faith through attendance at Mass with the Felician Sisters monthly and through class retreats.
The entire school community celebrates Mass together at least once a month and participates in various prayer services, penance services and Stations of the Cross seasonally.
Students study theology with supplemental texts including papal encyclicals and other church documents, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, writings of the Saints, and current events articles.
Students are provided the opportunity for weekly confession and adoration in the OLSH Chapel.
