Campus Ministry

Faith formation opportunities are a distinct and vital offering of a McNamara education. Campus Ministry seeks to foster the spiritual, intellectual, and emotional growth of the Bishop McNamara Catholic High School family. It is our mission to promote the Gospel message of love of God, others, and self. Through our baptism, we are called to be imitators of Jesus Christ in our words and actions. Liturgies, Retreats and Service to others are essential in helping us become the people God created us to be. 

Prayer is an important component to daily life at McNamara. The recently renovated school Chapel is open throughout the day for any members of our community to deepen their relationship with God. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a common practice for members of our student, staff and parent communities.  

The faculty and staff gather monthly for a Mass or a prayer service.

Servant Leadership opportunities are available in various aspects of Campus Ministry, ranging from Liturgical ministers to service within the local community...and much more.  

Coming soon! Please stay tuned for exciting new developments in the Ministry realm of McNamara's mission.


School Masses are held monthly and students assist in the liturgical celebrations and retreats.
