Mission Statement: - To carry on the teaching ministry of Jesus Christ by providing a Catholic, Lasallian education that develops individuals whose hearts and minds are prepared for a purposeful life.The mission of Bishop Kelley athletics is no different from the same mission that has been the driving force for success in the whole Bishop Kelley community for more than 50 years. Our athletic programs, just like our academic programs, each strive to build students into compassionate, resilient, dedicated, and faithful leaders in community.The value of athletics in schools reaches far beyond the surface of win/loss outcomes just like the value of the classroom environment is so much more than grades. Bishop Kelley is committed to nurturing athletic programs that meet the inspired vision of the school's mission statement while also teaching valuable lessons in leadership, work ethic, and sportsmanship.
St. Sebastian - Patron Saints of Athletes
He is the patron saint of athletes because of his energetic way of spreading and defending the Faith. Sebastian is also patron to all soldiers. He entered the Roman army under Emperor Carinus in 283 in order to defend the confessors and martyrs of his day without drawing attention to himself. His efforts kept the Faith of Marcus and Marcellian firm during their persecutions, right up to the time of their martyrdom. He was declared patron of plague sufferers of his reported cures of those afflicted with many diseases.
