Weekly Happenings- December 10, 2020
Thank You for Supporting Giving Tuesday!
This year, nearly 180 parents, friends, alumni, and faculty/staff made gifts to The O'Hara Fund to support tuition assistance. Thanks to the generosity of so many we were able to raise $30,139 to provide scholarships and financial aid for our students. What a blessing this is especially during this pandemic when many are facing so many challenges!

Tell Congress Catholic Schools Need Emergency Aid
COVID-19 has contributed to the permanent closure of over 160 Catholic schools across 23 states. Additionally, internal surveys show ten percent of Catholic schools are still uncertain of their future. That means as many as 500 or more additional Catholic schools could be in jeopardy of closing in the wake of the pandemic.
