The Catholic Studies Department makes a unique contribution to Kearney's identity as a Catholic school. It offers a value system and an atmosphere of religious inquiry which grows from the foundation established by the families of our students. We begin by looking at God's self-revelation through the Patriarchs, the Sinai Covenant, the prophets and ultimately the Christ. The Scriptural roots of these truths are examined, which lead to the individual's response in a moral life, the result of God's call to love. Finally, we enter into the questions of the demands of a Christian life: marriage, Christian justice, Christian womanhood and faith.
