Back to School Survey
As we prepare to return to school in August, it is important to us to understand the feelings and perspectives of our BMCHS family. It is our intent to return to campus for the 2020-2021 school year for in person instruction, following all requirements issued by the State of Nevada and the Diocese of Reno. Please share your thoughts about back to school plans in this survey . Thank you!

Diocesan Updates
A Message from Bishop Calvo

Preparing for Resuming Public Masses

For several weeks now, I have been working with diocesan staff and parish priests in planning for the day when we can resume parish liturgies. We eagerly look forward to that day but also are exercising due diligence in making the necessary preparations. This is essential for safety. We want to make sure the worship environment is as safe as possible following federal, state and health guidelines and recommendations. There is much to consider for there are various aspects that include social distancing in seating, sufficient supplies for necessary cleaning of surface areas, to name a few. All pastors along with parish leaders have been asked to proceed in this planning so we will be ready when the day comes that we can resume gathering together.

The health and safety of all participants in our liturgies are paramount. This is nothing less than a moral obligation for us to follow. It is a matter not only of charity toward neighbor but also justice. Health and life are precious gifts from God which we are bound to safeguard. Parishes will be doing their part in following safety protocols; we will be asking parishioners to do their part in respecting these protocols. Please keep this in your mind and, more importantly, in your heart for this will be a circumstance for us to heed Jesus’ command that we love one another.

More information will be forthcoming from the diocese and your parishes.

Virtual Baccalaureate Mass

It saddens us that we are unable to celebrate Baccalaureate Mass all together this year. The Baccalaureate Mass is one of our most cherished Bishop Manogue traditions and a beautiful way to honor our students, school, and community before graduation. Thank you to Most Rev. Bishop Calvo, Fr. Tom, Mrs. Hilliard, and our students for producing a “Virtual Baccalaureate Mass” to commemorate the class of 2020.
