We’re All in This Together

The O’Dowd community gathered in the gymnasiums on May 15 for the End of the Year Mass, celebrated by campus chaplain and religion teacher Fr. Jim Sullivan.

Prior to the start of the liturgy, Campus Ministry Team members offered a skit to help set the theme, “We’re All in This Together,” and reflected on the memorable moments from the 2018-19 school year that brought forth innumerable opportunities for growth.

During his homily, Fr. Jim remarked that students, faculty and staff bring many gifts and talents to bear that combine beautifully to “create this awesome organism that is the O’Dowd community.”

A special blessing was offered for students participating in various service learning programs and projects this summer, as well as those who are taking on campus leadership roles next year, and departing faculty and staff were recognized and thanked for their service to O’Dowd including Science teacher La Queitta Hill, Director of Service Learning Beth Stewart, Director of Educational Technology Gavin Maeda, Associate Principal Dr. Colette Roche, Office Manager Jeanne Dupont, Math teacher Else Dittmer Johnson ’96, Associate Athletics Director Carlos Arriaga, Director of Communications Lisa Coffey Mahoney ’76, English teacher Martha Hawkins, and Counselor Janet Huff who has served at O’Dowd as an administrator, counselor and teacher for an amazing 42 years.

Finally, Math teacher Willie Van Doren performed a rap blessing he wrote, accompanied by Student Activities Director Starr Gray ’98, Brian Judd, Dominic Henry and Jeff Beeby.
