Divine Child Hall of Fame
The Divine Child Hall of Fame was created in 2016 by the Divine Child Alumni Association and Falcon Athletic Club with a mission to honor those who have shown extraordinary dedication, love, leadership and service for the Divine Child Catholic Schools and the Church of the Divine Child Family.
Dcn. C. Roger O'Donnell joined the DC community in 1973. A faithful man always committed to serving the Lord and others, Roger was ordained a deacon in 2003. Until his retirement in January 2018, he played an integral part in DC's ministry, assisting with both baptisms and the Mass of the Resurrection. Additionally, his ministry extended to support Angela Hospice. Dcn. O'Donnell had a knack for connecting with people and providing them with spiritual comfort when they needed it most.
Leo Tallieu began teaching at DC in the Fall of 1966. During his 30 year career at DC, Leo grew the band program to nearly 70 musicians. He founded the Band Booster Club which helped raise money to purchase much needed instruments for students, and was also a talented composer, having written the musical score for the DC Fight Song. Mr. Tallieu's passion for music was contagious and his students loved band as much as he did.
Tim Lee graduated from DCHS in 1978. Over the past 40 years, he has coached more than 1000 student athletes and earned two CYO A-Division Titles, six CYO B-Division Titles, and more than 13 Prep-Bowl appearances. He believes in instilling Catholic Christian values in every student athlete, while motivating, inspiring and encouraging each student to be their best on and off the field.
In partnership with the Falcon Athletic Club, the Divine Child Alumni Association hosted its 3rd Annual Divine Child Hall of Fame & Taste Fest celebration on Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018.
The Strolling Taste Fest was made possible by 20 local pubs and eateries, as well as local breweries and distilleries who graciously donated a selection of their menu items. Thank you to all of our sponsors for your generous donations!
