How should ODs Connect within the ODU?

ODs should be encouraged to connect using the ODU systems and spaces for two important reasons:

  1. ODs can make the most of connecting with other ODs and remain informed on OD News, Events and Initiatives. This will enable them to maintain friendships, gain support from the network or give support to it and assess and participate where ODs and the Bishops Community are giving back to society.
  2. The ODU can maintain and improve the accuracy and completeness of the ODU database and thereby increase the value of the network ODs.

All data is held digitally and the tools referred to below are digital; they require some knowledge of online web tools. However, should anyone require assistance, the ODU office and OD Connectors are there to assist; whether to register or complete the data on OD profiles or join events.

A well connected OD is:

  • Registered with a login on, and
    • once activated, updates and confirms the personal details (like location, email address etc.) the ODU has on record for them.
    • ensures their current country, email address and phone number are up to date.
    • adds a profile photo
    • completes and updates as much of their profile as possible.

(being registered & active a basic need, please actively encourage this amongst ODs, but directing ODs to the site, for news, registration of events, getting support, engaging with the OD Network. The OD Office is now ensuring all school leavers are registered and have a login, but we have a backlog in historical years)

The ODU news feeds and has a low frequency of articles. Advise and encourage ODs to connect as much as possible to make the most of the ODU Network, remain informed, and provide useful information.
