Greetings to our Feehan alumni and friends near and far,
I’m writing today with an update after a very difficult week at Feehan. As we shared last week, AJ Quetta — a senior hockey and lacrosse player — was severely injured during a Feehan hockey game last Tuesday evening.
Since I last wrote, AJ has had a surgery that reportedly went well. AJ remains hospitalized in Boston, and his family has reported that he has a very long road ahead.
The outpouring of support for AJ, his family, his hockey teammates and our Feehan community has been truly inspirational. For those of you in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, you’ve likely seen the coverage. Our region aches for AJ and the Quetta family. Just one example out of dozens and dozens of news stories is here: https://boston.cbslocal.com/2021/01/28/aj-quetta-bishop-feehan-hockey-player-bruins-patriots-support/
The Boston Bruins have been especially supportive: https://nesn.com/2021/01/bruins-give-game-puck-to-aj-quetta-after-penguins/
My biggest message is about your Feehan community. We have surrounded AJ and the Quettas with prayers and love since Tuesday. On Friday, our entire school community gathered together to pray for AJ just hours before our hockey team returned to the ice in an emotional first game back. To read more about Friday’s support for AJ, click here.
One final note…please continue to pray for AJ. Feehan theology teacher, Deacon Joe McGinley, gave an inspiring homily on that very topic on Friday. “This is what we do,” he said. I highly recommend taking five minutes to watch the homily. Click here to watch.
The Quettas asked me to share their deep appreciation for the support of the Feehan community. And I will add my own thanks for the hundreds and hundreds of notes and messages that have come our way.
God Bless AJ. And God Bless our Feehan community.
