Students taking the August 26 SAT at Bishop McNamara High School should park in the Mt. Calvary Catholic Church and school parking lot and enter the building through Bishop McNamara's front doors, located just off the circular drive. Parents should drop off and pick up students from the Mount Calvary parking lot as well.
Peer Ministry is a 1 credit elective Theology course for students in their senior year. Approximately 30 students are selected through an application process during the spring of junior year. The application includes reflection questions, parental approval, teacher recommendations, and a personal interview with the Campus Ministry Team. Through this course, students are offered spiritual formation and leadership training.
Peer Ministers mentor the freshman class through visits to the Theology classes, assist in planning and leading our Freshman Retreat and Junior Kairos Retreat programs, and serve as advocates and role models for the entire school community.
Applying to Become a Peer Minister
The Peer Ministry Discernment Process begins in January of each year. Juniors interested in applying for Peer Ministry will need to attend an informational session to receive the discernment handbook and application.
Information sessions will be held in Moreau Chapel in January, 2018 (specific dates to be determined). Any junior wanting to learn more about Peer Ministry or wanting to apply must attend one of these sessions. They will last approximately 25 minutes. If, for some reason, a student is unable to attend any of these sessions, but wishes to apply to Peer Ministry, s/he must come, in person, to speak with Ms. Saunders or Mr. Sanneman to receive an application.
