Kevin Feehan not only lives his Catholic faith, but he integrates it into his professional life as well. A practising lawyer living in Edmonton, Alberta, Mr. Feehan has consistently given back to the Catholic education community for three decades.
His dedication to working to ensure Canadians have fair and proper access to Catholic education is precisely why he was nominated and awarded the 2014 Justice James Higgins Award.
The CCSTA’s Higgins Award is presented annually in memory of Canadian Catholic school trustee and jurist, the Honourable Justice James Higgins. It reflects recognition of an exceptional contribution to Catholic education in Canada.
CCSTA recently had the opportunity to officially present the certificates and prizes to the winners of the Share Your Gifts Contest, which encouraged students from across the country to submit entries showcasing their value of receiving a Catholic education.
With a vast educational and travel background, Fr. Paul Hansen has first-hand experience and understanding about Catholicism and how it plays a role in cultures from around the world.
A member of the Redemptorist Congregation, Fr. Paul has completed sabbaticals in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East., and his continued informal studies have spanned the globe giving him a living context for the Jesus text.
Set as one of the conference’s keynote speakers at the CCSTA 2014 AGM in Kingston, Ontario this June, Fr. Paul plans to speak about these global experiences and bring it back home; he will discuss Catholic Education in dialogue with present Canadian culture.
