O'Dea High School

Irish Prayer Circle

Posted October 4, 2021

As a community of faith, we are called to find solace in prayer. Starting on October 7th from 7:00-7:30AM in the St. James Cathedral Chapel, O’Dea Campus Ministry will be initiating a morning prayer group open to students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni. The vision is to create a space for members of the O’Dea community to come together in prayer, regardless of religious background or experience. We will be exploring a different type of prayer every two weeks, with the focus being on quiet individual prayer in a group setting. Following prayer, we will regroup in the Campus Ministry Office at O’Dea for coffee and pastries. Questions? Contact Mr. Odem or Mr. Leighton. All are welcome!
