In April 2021, we celebrated breaking ground on the new O’Dowd Center. Thanks to our families and alumni, faculty, staff, and friends, and the unprecedented matching grant from the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation, we raised $40,324,731 to build the new O’Dowd Center.
This state-of-the-art 38,000-square-foot facility will house our fantastic performing arts, athletics, and academic programming, with space for all of us to gather for Mass, assemblies, and much-loved community traditions.
We are forever grateful for your tremendous generosity. Watch our short video from President J.D. Childs, standing on the site of the new Center, to celebrate the groundbreaking – a historic event for our school! Thank you for believing in the future of O’Dowd.
