Campus Life

Dominican Dads

Formed on the Dominican Campus over a decade ago, Dominican Dads seeks to challenge and encourage dads of current and former students on the Campus in their vocation as fathers through prayer, fellowship, and service and to facilitate opportunities for Dads to be present on the Campus in a meaningful way.  

Dominican Dads is open to any father or father figure of a current or former student at Overbrook Catholic School or St. Cecilia Academy. Our theme for the 2023-24 school year is Into the Breach, and we will be using the “Into the Breach” video series as a guide. Into the Breach Video Series | A Knights of Columbus Effort (

Dominican Dads gather every Friday morning when school is in session from September 22 through May 17.  We begin with a brief period of prayer and adoration from 6:15 a.m. to 6:45 a.m. in the SCA chapel, followed by a video or live speaker with discussion and fellowship in the OCS portion of the Dining Hall.  Meetings end promptly at 7:30 a.m. 

We believe that it is important for Dads to be present on the Dominican Campus as a means of fostering fellowship and service.  Past Campus events supported by the Dominican Dads have included the SCA PowderPuff Game in October and the OCS and SCA Community Fish Fry during Lent.
