The FUND for HENDRICKEN is the foundation of Bishop Hendricken’s fundraising efforts.

Approximately 4% of Bishop Hendricken’s budget is provided for by gifts from alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents, students, faculty, staff and friends.

The Varsity Football team enters Friday evening’s contest with a 1-1 overall record, and a 1-0 record in Rhode Island Interscholastic League play. Prior to last week’s 35-0 win over Cumberland, the Hawks opened their season against New York powerhouse Iona Preparatory. Keith Croft’s squad takes on a North Kingstown team that is perfect thus far in their first season back in Division I play.
