O'Dea High School

Welcome & Overview

As a Catholic school in the tradition of the Edmund Rice Christian Brothers, our mission is to accompany every young man in the building on their faith journey by meeting them where they are as a unique child of a God who loves them unconditionally.

For Catholic students, we provide a wide range of sacramental and non-sacramental faith-building opportunities to honor baptismal vows and help young men grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and the Catholic Faith.

For our non-Catholic students, we offer a wholehearted welcome into a community of faith grounded in the love of Jesus Christ. At O’Dea, all students are respected and afforded practical opportunities to grow in their own faith tradition and to develop a healthy interior life grounded in Gospel values.

Whether you are Catholic or non-Catholic, religious or non-religious, O’Dea Campus Ministry welcomes you to a Brotherhood that transcends differences and is here to accompany you on your journey at O’Dea and beyond.

In Christ,

Jason Odem

“How beautiful is the gaze with which Jesus regards us—how full of tenderness! Let us never lose trust in the patience and mercy of God.”
