Stay in Touch

Your life stories are important to us as we strive to keep our alumni connected. We hope you have fond memories of your high school experience and would love to hear from you.

Two editions of the Irish Update are produced each year - one in the spring and one in the fall. We aim to ensure you are informed on alumni events, news, and correspondence while keeping you in the loop on current Bishop McNamara happenings. In addition to professional and address changes, please send us awards, honors, marriages, births, or memorial information that you would like reported in the Irish Update.

Please submit your stories and photos to Sandy LaMotte '82 Malpasuto, Director of Alumni Relations, at or, click on this link to our Stay in Touch page.
