BISHOP McNAMARA HIGH SCHOOLA Catholic, Holy Cross, Coeducational, College Preparatory School for Grades 9-12


The retreat program is designed to provide opportunities for spiritual formation that are appropriate to the developmental level of the students and challenge them to deepen their commitments to faith, compassion and justice.

The Freshman Retreat  is a part of the orientation process and focuses on introducing students to the BMHS Holy Cross heritage and our values of faith, family, and diversity.

The Sophomore Retreat is an off-campus retreat in which students will focus on the pillar of "building respect" and exploring their identities as people and as a member of our larger community

The Junior Retreat: Students attend the Kairos retreat ,The Kairos experience is a 3 day, 2 night opportunity to literally retreat (“get away”) from every-day life in order to focus on one’s own personal relationship with God, with themselves, and with others.

The Senior Retreat provides an opportunity for the entire class to come together on a day-long retreat in a spirit of prayer so that students can reflect on the people they are becoming and discern more clearly their future beyond Bishop McNamara as bringers of Hope.
