Dear Cardinal O’Hara Family,
A lot is happening as we spiritually prepare ourselves for Holy Week and Easter Sunday.  The students are participating in a prayer service and the offering of confession during Theology classes today. This is the beauty of belonging to a Catholic school and sharing the great gifts of our faith.
The 4thquarter began on Monday, April 8th. Please encourage your son/daughter to finish strong academically. 
A few highlights for week:
