When making your contribution, please select “Giving Tuesday – OLPH School” from the Fund dropdown menu.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help School has been serving the faithful community in the Southwest area of Columbus for over 60 years. It is through the constant generosity and stewardship of this community that we are able to continue providing an exceptional Catholic education for all who seek one. We would like to thank all of our past supporters for their charitable contributions to all areas of our school and we ask you to consider giving toward the Our Lady Fund on this year’s “Giving Tuesday.”

Help us reach OUr goal of $15,000!

With your help, Our Lady can continue to provide outstanding student programming! Funds raised will assist with classroom supplies, STREAM initiatives, updated faith-based learning materials, enrichment opportunities, marketing and development needs, additional student aides, and tuition assistance. A gift on Giving Tuesday ensures that all students are supported with the very best resources academically, socially, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.


As a first year Our Lady school family, the staff has welcomed us with open arms and have gone out of their way to accommodate the special health needs of our immunocompromised daughter. They have taken an exorbitant amount of time and resources to ensure she is as safe as possible in school while optimizing her educational opportunities. In addition to considering all aspects of her health concerns, the entire staff has made joining the family inviting and easy. Our daughter is happy, healthy, and being academically challenged everyday and her younger sisters are eager to join when they are old enough! Thank you Our Lady for all you do for our daughter and welcoming us into the school family!

Vito 5K

The 9th Annual Vito 5K will be back and in person at a brand new venue this year! Please join us at the Pinnacle Golf Course on Saturday, October 30 at 8:30 AM. This Super FUN Run raises money to benefit children in our school and PSR that have learning differences.

We run in memory of Vito Nocero, an advocate for special education, who passed away suddenly at the age of 26. Vito faced many difficulties in school because of various learning challenges. He overcame these with the help of teachers and programs geared towards his distinct educational needs. Vito always believed that there is a place for everyone in this world and we aim to honor his life and legacy with the “Super FUN Run: A 5K for Heroes.”

This year’s theme aims to highlight our strength, our power, and our uniqueness. Registration information will be shared in upcoming bulletins and email announcements. There will be a virtual option this year.  To register, head over to runsignup.com/Race/OH/GroveCity/AVirtual5kforHeroes.

We hope that you will be able to support this SUPER cause!
