Bishop McNamara


Our Mission

Bishop McNamara Catholic School is dedicated to maximizing the potential of students, spiritually, morally, and intellectually through a faith-based community of academic excellence and service to others.

Hammes Hall of Honor

The Dorothy and Romy Hammes Hall of Honor was a gift to Bishop McNamara Catholic High School in 2008 from Dorene and Jerry Hammes and People's Bank of Kankakee County. It honors those of St. Patrick, St. Patrick Central and Bishop McNamara High School whose outstanding commitment to Christian Excellence has helped to shape our Irish heritage.

Each year nominations for induction into the Hall of Honor are sought and an ad hoc committee makes the final selection. The Irish Alumni Association administers the Dorothy and Romy Hammes Hall of Honor.

The Hammes Hall of Honor represents individuals who have brought the Bishop McNamara Catholic School mission to life through their outstanding commitment to Christian excellence. Learn more about the Hammes Hall of Honor inductees here.
