“For even as the body is one and yet has many members, and all the members of the body, though they are many, are one body, so also is Christ” (1 Cor. 12:12)
The Catholic Church is changing, Catholic education is changing, and both are facing extreme challenges in our complex society. Bishop McNamara Catholic School's Catholic Ministry Office is meeting those needs and changing with the times to meet the spiritual needs of our students in grades 7-12. Our program includes numerous opportunities for the sacraments, for spiritual direction, and for translating faith into action. These are accomplished through:
- Faith Formation: Ensure a Catholic/Christian culture among students, faculty, parents and alumni.
- Liturgies: Encourage student participation at school liturgies.
- Christian Service: Teach students to be the “beacon of service” in the greater Kankakee community.
- Retreats: Provide opportunities for students and faculty to have a deeper moment with Christ.
