As you're assembling your holiday lists, we ask that you think of your Bishop McNamara on this #GivingTuesday.
Think back on your fondest memories of Bishop McNamara and join us in supporting our Holy Cross mission during this charitable time of year. Financial donations, be they general donations to the School or donations to a specific program or scholarship, are always appreciated not just by the School, the staff and faculty - but also by the students, through whom the McNamara spirit and Holy Cross traditions will live on.
Thank you for your thoughts this holiday season, and for your generosity this #GivingTuesday - may God continue to bless you and your families!
Approved Service Opportunities
During their four years at Bishop McNamara, students will be exposed to a variety of people with a variety of needs. This is accomplished through specifying a focus population for each grade level. We have a listing for each grade level that includes numerous partners with whom we have established a relationship. These are considered "pre-approved opportunities."
Select any link below for a .pdf list of Pre-Approved Service Opportunities to view or print.
All Christian service sites on the list of “Pre-Approved Service Opportunities" meet the required focus area for each grade level and DO NOT require any further approval before a student volunteers at the site. The Approval Request Form must be submitted for any site NOT on the pre-approved list and the student must receive confirmation of approval BEFORE they participate in the service activity in order for the completed service to be accepted for credit. Please give yourself plenty of time to get this approval. Approval is only valid for the student submitting the request (anyone else wishing to get approval for the same site must submit their own request).
- Check Community Service Board outside Campus Ministry and listen for other opportunities through your theology teacher and daily announcements.
- Always call ahead to the site to confirm your date and time to volunteer.
- Always go with another person (either an adult or a friend).
