The goal and philosophy of the Theology department at Nashua Catholic is to inform, form and transform our students and how they live, with the meaning and ethic of the Christian faith. We are committed to this goal alongside our parents, who are the primary educators of their child’s faith. Our curriculum adheres closely to the Diocese of Manchester guidelines and the framework for our curriculum is deeply embedded in the four basic components of the Catholic tradition: faith, worship (sacraments), moral life, and prayer. Theology classes meet every day at Nashua Catholic and are a recognized discipline within the school curricula.
The Nashua Catholic Theology department consists of two secular Franciscans who willingly share and model the Franciscan spirit of “living simply and loving deeply.” In addition to the Theology department, the principal and one of the science teachers at Nashua Catholic are also secular Franciscans. The month of October is dedicated to the teachings and philosophies of St. Francis.
Our school community prays together at monthly liturgies, and our students are fortunate to have exposition of the Blessed Sacrament the first Friday of every month. Additionally, students can participate within individual Theology class service projects or our school wide service club.
Nashua Catholic students also participate in retreats developed to reinforce their spirituality and confidence.
