Irish Alumni Association

The Irish Alumni Association unites more than 9,300 graduates of St. Patrick, St. Patrick Central and Bishop McNamara Catholic High School. Our mission is to preserve the heritage that shapes our school, to foster the spirit of camaraderie among alumni and to support the mission and development of Bishop McNamara Catholic School.

All Bishop McNamara students become members of the Irish Alumni Association upon graduating. If you are interested in learning more about the Irish Alumni Association Board or becoming a member, please contact Liz Marczak '77 Madsen or, call her at (815) 933-7620.

If you graduated in a year ending in 3 or 8, 2023 will be a reunion year for you! If you have any class reunion details please contact us and we will help spread the word for you on the website and in the Irish Update.
