Shamrock Symbolism

Shamrock+Symbolism (March 18th, 2024)

Our Bishop Feehan community is no stranger to the shamrock. It is our school’s symbol that can be seen anywhere around campus, whether you spot one in the middle of the football field, in the cafeteria, or even embroidered on the breast pocket of your uniform. St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated during the month of March, and shamrocks can be seen frequently as they are a symbol of the Irish holiday. At Feehan, we know what each of the three leaves on the shamrock mean to us: sanctity, scholarship, and sportsmanship. Regarding St. Patrick’s Day, the shamrock was used as a metaphor by St. Patrick in order to teach the Christian concept of the Holy Trinity to others. He said that each leaf symbolized each part of the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. When you see a shamrock this March, remember its symbolic meanings and set goals for yourself in order to reflect one or more of the leaves on our Bishop Feehan shamrock, whether the goals are academic, athletic, or spiritual.
