Welcome to O'Hara Campus Ministry


As the Heart of the Cardinal O’Hara Family, Campus Ministry exists to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ’s redeeming Love, to grow as disciples in that Love, to develop healthy relationships through that Love, to serve others with that Love, and to return that Love to God in worship.


Campus ministry provides a variety of opportunities for encountering Jesus Christ, learning about the Catholic Faith, and growing love and devotion for God and our neighbor. We are fortunate to have devoted teachers, priests, and volunteers who dedicate their time and efforts to serving God and our students.


Fr. August Taglianetti currently serves as the Director of Campus Ministry. 


Truly at the center and heart of the school, Cardinal O'Hara Chapel is located on the second floor directly above the main office and across the hall from the Ministry Center. The Holy Eucharist is reserved the tabernacle in the Chapel.

On August 15, 2021 Archbishop Perez reinstituted the obligation to attend Sunday Mass. That statement can be found here: https://archphila.org/statement-of-archbishop-nelson-j-perez-regarding-reinstating-the-obligation-to-attend-sunday-mass/. As most of us have returned to our normal activities like going to the store, going to the shore, playing sports, or going to restaurants, we know that we can safely gather together as the Body of Christ for the worship of Almighty God. The MOST ESSENTIAL thing in our lives is our relationship with our God and Sunday Mass is THE ESSENTIAL way for us to build up that relationship. At Holy Mass, we gather as brothers and sisters in Christ to listen and learn from the inspired Word of God in the Scriptures, we bring and offer the sacrifices of our daily lives and unite them to Christ's Sacrifice on the Cross, and we are fed by the very Bread from Heaven: the Holy Eucharist. Over the last two years, we have seen that virtual or livestream does not compare to actually being with others in person. The same is true with our worship. Nothing compares to actually being there. It is time to return to the practice of attending Sunday Mass.
Check your home parish website for Mass and Confession times. A good habit begins with a first step. Make a resolution to go to Mass this Sunday. Your priest will be happy to see you, but more importantly Jesus will be happy to see you too.
