Special Programs

Service is an integral part of the Bishop Connolly experience. It is the core of who we are as a community and why we exist as a school. From the beginning, students have been introduced to the needs of the Greater Fall River area. The goal of the program is not merely to convey information; it is to create a culture of service and awareness of social needs, develop an ability to work effectively and sympathetically with others, and to foster knowledge of one's own character and behavior through working with and serving others.
