Our BK 2020 Strategic Plan is helping us to be thoughtful and intentional about how to invest in people, programs, and facilities at Bishop Kelly in order to support the growth of our student body. BK 2020 is the third, five-year strategic plan at BK. Looking back at the first two plans helps us to realize the impact of our efforts and make projections about our future.

acred SPACES

Sacred Spaces

Sacred spaces play an important role in our lives each day. They are places where people feel as though they can be themselves, where they experience Christ by means of both environment

10 p a ge

and people present there. The Campus Ministry room is a sacred space for me on campus. It’s different from any other room in the school, and students feel comfortable and at home here. This is the epicenter of planning for all Campus Ministry activities and it is holy ground! It is a place that can transform into a quiet and reflective room that encourages prayer, or a work room that gives students the opportunity to reach out to their peers and journey with them in faith. It is a space that helps us step back from the busyness and normalcy of daily life to experience God. — Teresa Nadareski, BK Campus Minister

Some sacred spaces for me are St. John’s Cathedral, St. Paul’s at BSU, and a small grass space outside the Comm Building at BSU. I also really like the chapel at BK. I have spent many afternoons there playing the piano and doing homework. It’s quiet and feels peaceful. – Noah Rudin, ’15

A place feels sacred to me when I feel the presence of God. The labyrinth helps me find God in the everyday experience of walking. Sometimes, a class full of students will walk it in silence. This a joy. Once in awhile, my classroom becomes sacred when students sing out together, or strive to understand the sacred mysteries of our faith. – Tom Vitrano, BK Theology Faculty

The PTC is a busy place! Often entire athletic teams take over the space to do strength training together. These young athletes are using state of the art equipment with the guidance of trained staff. Our goal is to teach our athletes proper training techniques to improve their strength and coordination, increase endurance, increase bone density, and reduce risk of injury. On Friday afternoons the PTC becomes faculty/staff Bootcamp. About a dozen teachers and staff work out with a certified personal trainer as part of our Live Well BK program. Everyone who makes use of the PTC agrees that this new facility is transformative!
