Theology Department Philosophy

The American Catholic Bishops' pastoral letter on education outlines the educational mission of the Church as an integrated ministry embracing development of faith, building of community, and learning of service.

The Theology Department of the Academy of Holy Angels seeks to develop this model of religious education and learning of service.

Every student at AHA takes a Theology course each day, every trimester of the year. We invite students at appropriate development levels to an awareness of church heritage, the gospel call to personal holiness, and the challenge of transforming the world into the kingdom of justice and peace.

Service and the Theology Curriculum
Service and volunteering are important components of theology instruction at Holy Angels.

Campus Ministry Team
A unique and valuable part of the AHA community, the Campus Ministry Team (CMT) is comprised of seniors who learn about liturgy, leadership and service and who plan and lead community events in those areas. The application process begins in January. Read more about CMT in the Program of Studies.
