Bishop Feehan High School, also known as Bishop lodge High School, is a Catholic co-ed high school located in Attleborough, Massachusetts. It is situated in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fall River. The school was established in 1961 and is staffed by the Sisters of Mercy. The school has developed into a well-respected high school. Many colleges and universities recruit students who attend Bishop Feehan.
Bishop Feehan High School serves as the primary and secondary school for several families in the Attleboro area. The Roman Catholic Dioceses of the Diarchy of Hampshire, England, sends their students to this prestigious school. Students of this high school graduate to become full-fledged citizens of the United States of America. Several of these graduates find employment in the U.S. military.
Many of those who graduate from the Attleboro Catholic high school continue to remain in touch with their older family members. The high school is also connected with several other religious and community associations. Those attending the Catholic secondary school will sometimes go on to study overseas while attending classes. Students of this denomination may often travel to serve in the armed forces.
Those who attend the Catholic secondary school in Attleboro may well be aware that their community and church participate in several charitable activities. Students often get involved with such things as the St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church, the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, the St. Augustine Catholic Church, and the St. Lawrence Catholic Church. Several events are regularly held at these locations. These events celebrate the life of St. Ignatius Loyola, the patron saint of the Roman Catholic Church. Other events include praying over the graves of St. Lawrence, as well as St. Ignatius.
All the students living in Attleboro and the Attleboro area are encouraged to participate in activities that promote spiritual growth. Several local priests and religious groups offer spiritual services to children and young adults in these communities. There are numerous spiritual institutions in and around Attleboro. They include:
In addition to the many physical institutions, several Attleboro area schools have established student ministry. A few examples include The Bethel Ministries, the St. John’s Catholic Church, and the St. Lawrence Catholic Church. The students living in the Bishop Feehan High School community may engage in various types of spiritual and volunteer work. Among these activities include debating abortion, euthanasia, and same-sex marriages, participating in campus events such as debate clubs and musical nights, and working in the church offices. Several students have taken part in public speaking events, making speeches for political or other civic groups. Several have even gone on to become politicians.
One of the most notable former students of Bishop Feehan High School who became a Catholic priest is Blessed Philip folks. He served four terms as a provincial delegate to the Holy Office from 1977 until 1983. He later became a canon lawyer and priest and was known for his writing, teaching, and political activity.
The current Bishop of Bath and Wells, George Pell, was an Attleboro native. He earned a bachelor’s degree at Bishop’s College, a small college in Attleboro that is now defunct. Other former pupils of Bishop’s College include Jim Rogers, John Elworthy, Thomas Parry, and Edward Said. Among several recent Attleboro alumni who have become prominent politicians are Governor Thomas Weld and Mr. Weld’s brother, John Weld MP.
The school is also affiliated with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York and is located on the border between Westchester County and Connecticut. The archdiocese was forced to close its school because of a lack of pupils. It is the only Roman Catholic school in New England that has been shut down in such an extended period. Bishop’s College closed its doors on August 1st, but hundreds of students remained to finish their last study course. One of the reasons for the sudden closure was the news’s reaction by some students of the Rev. Bernard Sheen.
The reaction came after the Irish Cardinal took over the Holy Cross’s Congregation and the adjacent Diocesan School. He removed the priests and all other adult male teachers. Several days later, two priests were found guilty of child molestation involving many boys. Seven others were accused of sex crimes against boys. The charges relate to the incidents which occurred over five years.
When the charges were announced, the students took immediate action. Many offered to resign rather than face the possible conviction. Many were relieved when the case collapsed in court. There were several commendations given to the students and the entire faculty. Unfortunately, this is one more instance in which Catholic leaders have failed the diocesan school students.
