Fun Facts

Cardinal O'Hara was President of Notre Dame University before becoming a bishop.

Cardinal O'Hara High School was often referred to as "Tombstone Catholic" because the campus was built on (unused) cemetary land.

Legend has it that the spirits of both a stage crew member and maintenance worker make their precense known in the school's auditorium and basement respectively.
