We give our students the opportunity to become Christ-Centered, in the One who centers their being now and in the future.
Although Catholic tradition and faith are important aspects of the Ladywood experience, students of all religious backgrounds are welcome to attend, encouraging a diverse environment. Through daily prayer, school Masses, religious retreats, Eucharistic Adoration, and a variety of Theology courses, our students develop understanding, wisdom, and an appreciation for spirituality in their lives.
Sr. Felicity serves as Ladywood's Dean of Ministry and Mission and is responsible for empowering students to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, drawing them to participate in the life, mission, and work of the faith community, and fostering the personal and spiritual growth of each student. She is also available to provide pastoral care to Ladywood's students and families as needed.
At Ladywood, we create young women that immerse themselves in their surroundings. Our students are proactive members of society and they put our Felician Core Values into action; not only now, but also well beyond their time in high school.
