Light the Way

Light the Way Spring Appeal Logo

As the world and our school community envision life after the pandemic, we continue to recognize that many of our O’Connell families are still navigating through unanticipated financial hardships and setbacks. In response, Bishop O’Connell has launched Light the Way, our spring fundraising initiative for the Knight Fund, and your gift will light the way for our students, faculty, and programs in the following areas:


Tuition assistance

Our goal is to meet the increased need for tuition assistance every Bishop O'Connell family who might be struggling with unanticipated financial setbacks.

Campus ministry and retreats

Campus Ministry provides opportunities for our students to experience the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Eucharist, to experience His healing power in the sacrament of Reconciliation, and to enter into a relationship with Him
in personal prayer.

Thank you for being an shining light within our community and helping us to improve our programs and empower our young people to live a lifetime of service to God and others as framed by the Catholic education they blessedly receive while at Bishop O’Connell High School.
