Speaker Bill McNamara, Seattle University's Campus Minister for Liturgical Music 12:30pm - 1:30pm / STCN 210
Bill McNamara grew up in Queens,
NY and earned his BA in theology and psychology from Georgetown University. Prior to his position at Seattle University, he ministered at a retreat center in Cincinnati, OH, and at Catholic parishes
in Enumclaw, WA, Oakland, CA, and Bellevue, WA. Later, he completed his Master of
Divinity degree at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley in 2003. Bill
enjoys traveling, hiking, bicycling, journaling, and anything to do with the
preparation and sharing of good food. Bill has also sung with the SU Choirs and
the Seattle Men’s Chorus. These days, Bill’s non-working hours are mostly spent
as a spouse, and father to two small children (5 years and 2 years old). Bill
has loved Catholic liturgy and liturgical music for as long as he can remember,
and enjoys sharing that enthusiasm with the SU community.
will be part narrative, part reflection, part conversation. By sharing the
story of the winding path that led Bill to discover his career in church music
and ministry, he will invite reflection and conversation on those things that
spark our interest, creativity, and deep satisfaction.
