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.
Each month the entire school gathers for a Liturgy celebration, which is most often a celebration of the Catholic Mass. Twice a year - once on Ash Wednesday, and once for the Senior Farewell in May - we have a special prayer service led by students.
We also have an optional Mass every school day in Moreau Chapel, which is a wonderful way to collect ourselves in prayer before school begins. All people - students, faculty, staff, and parents - are welcome!
We facilitate prayer opportunities throughout the year in Moreau Chapel, including the Rosary, prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours, Bible Study, and Eucharistic Adoration. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available on certain Fridays throughout the school year, when possible through the generosity of our priests.
Each school day begins with the entire school community pausing for Morning Prayer, which usually consists of a prayer written by a student Peer Minister being read over the PA by a different Peer Minister. In keeping with Bishop McNamara'a Catholic identity, each class period of the day also begins with a form of prayer led by the teacher.
