This year, Catholic Schools Week finds OMC in the middle of an effort to rebuild our school. The 2024-2025 Annual Appeal will support teachers and families as we prepare for our return home to a new and improved school building.

A school classroom is so much more than furniture and technological equipment. They are spaces that teachers make their own through the use of personalized libraries, decorations, and learning enhancing materials. Teachers rely on these personal touches to ensure that students have the tools they need to succeed and to feel at home in their classrooms. When our students return to the rebuilt OMC, teachers will want to make their new classrooms welcoming for all students, train to take full advantage of a technology suite of state-of-the-art equipment, and ensure a smooth academic transition. Funds raised this year will help to ensure that teachers have the supplies needed to enrich the student experience.    

To further strengthen our school, the Annual Appeal will also support establishing a robust financial aid fund for families experiencing financial distress. Financial aid at OMC helps our unmatched Catholic education remain accessible.

Donations to the 2024-2025 Annual Appeal can be made via check and cash mailed to the attention of Shane Sprandio in the Parish Office located at 7 E. Chestnut Hill Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19118. Gifts to the Annual Appeal can also be made via the form below. When mailing your donation, please specify that your contribution is for the 2024-2025 Annual Appeal. This will help us track our progress for the appeal.

During this year of reimagining OMC’s academic programming as part of our rebuilding, we hope that you will contribute to our efforts to make sure our school remains academically competitive, and a safe home for all our students and faculty. Now more than ever, every gift you make to the Annual Fund will help to secure a bright future for our students.

The faculty, staff, and our students – the future leaders of this community – thank you for your support in the past and we look forward to continuing to work with you for OMC’s bright future.
