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!
