The O’Dowd community gathered in the large gymnasium on December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, to celebrate the Advent Liturgy.
In his homily, campus chaplain Fr. Jim Sullivan talked about the joy of giving.
“The more you give, the more you have to give. And the more you give, the more you will receive,” he said.
At the conclusion of the liturgy, the community bid farewell to religion teacher Rich Vitale, who after 10 years of service to O’Dowd is moving to Washington, DC, at the end of the semester, where his wife took a position at the Carnegie Institution for Science.
