PTO Logo

All parents of Bishop O'Connell students, as well as faculty, are automatically members of the PTO. The mission of Bishop O’Connell High School is to provide students an education rooted in the life of Christ and to foster the pursuit of excellence in the whole person. The PTO assists the school in this mission by uniting the parents and faculty through various community, family, spiritual, and service opportunities.

The September General PTO meeting is held with the full membership on Back to School Night in the auditorium. The PTO Board usually meets the first Monday of the month during the school year. Check the PTO Calendar for the specific time and place. We welcome any parent or faculty member to join us at our monthly PTO Board meetings.

Bishop O'Connell is more than a school, it is a family, and everyone's unique talents and gifts make this our community.


Please consider assisting on one or more of the following PTO committees using the signup link below. Thank you!

Spiritual Life Committee

All parents are invited to join the Spiritual Life Committee, which prays for the O’Connell students, faculty and families, and helps provide opportunities for parents to strengthen and grow their faith. Participation at every level is welcome. Contact

Prayer Connection

Parents, faculty and staff are invited to become members of the Bishop O’Connell Knights Intercessor Prayer Connection. The PTO worked with the Chaplain's office to create this email group dedicated to praying for the intentions of the entire DJO community and their loved ones. Prayer requests are sent to the coordinator via email and then shared with members of the Prayer Connection along with suggested prayers for each intention. Prayer requests are assembled into a single weekly Wednesday email unless a more urgent request requires more timely prayers. If you have a prayer request, or if you would like to join this prayer chain, please send an email to
