Fellowship and "The Barracks"

Fellowship and "The Barracks"

The Fellowship of Benedictine Cadets (FBC) touches thousands of lives, one heart at a time. FBC is modeled after the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior-high and youth levels since 1954 to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. At BC, you do not have to participate in a sport to attend an FBC meeting or join the FBC, which focuses on serving our local community by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.

“The Barracks” is the new nickname of room B1, previously known as “The Fishbowl” because of the five floor-to-ceiling glass windows that face the Academic Well.

Since 1963, when Benedictine moved from Bull Street to Seawright Drive, this room has served many purposes. It was a classroom for subjects like theology, English, and history. It even served as one of many filming locations on BC’s campus for the 2017 movie “Dear Dictator,” starring Michael Caine, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, and Jason Biggs (Jim from the “American Pie” movies), who portrayed a teacher when he filmed a “Dear Dictator” scene in this room.

“The Barracks” serves as the home to BC’s Campus Ministry program but the door is always open for anyone in the school’s community. That’s the point, to provide Cadets with a space where they can bond together as brothers and encourage each other in a Christ-like environment.
