The Comella twins are among 27 Johnston residents who have been named to the 50-year-old high school’s First Quarter Honor Roll that was announced by Michele King, Director of Communications at the Warwick-based school.

Founded in 1959, Bishop Hendricken High School was named after the first Bishop of the Diocese of Providence Thomas F. Hendricken. Since that time, the Warwick-based all-boys school has established itself as one of the finest Catholic, college preparatory schools for young men in New England.
“Our mission, to bring each and every member of our community into a close relationship with God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is in the forefront of everything we do,” says Hendricken President John A. Jackson, Class of 1971. “Ours is a school that is rich in tradition, but ever evolving.”
