We will also be sponsoring:
Our Students' Summer Service Trip
On June 16-22, 2019 Cor Jesu students participating in this year’s summer service trip will be working to make homes safer, warmer, and drier for people living in extreme poverty in the Appalachian mountains.
The Apostles of the Sacred Heart mission in Benin Africa - The sisters operate the Blessed Clelia Merloni Medical Center. It is open during the day for services and minor surgeries, and the maternity ward remains open around the clock. The center provides mothers and their babies with essential health care and education. Now the sisters have moved into a much poorer area to another clinic that is very primitive.
These five charities will each receive 18% of the money we raise during Penny Queen Week. Additionally, 10% of all funds raised will go to CJ Endowment fund, which contributes over $100,000 each year to CJ families in need of assistance with tuition.
