Mothers' Club


The Cor Jesu Mothers' Club brings together our community of Moms with a variety of activities. Just being the Mom of a CJA student grants you membership! We encourage you to get involved through our year round Social Events, Volunteer Opportunities for the CJ community & beyond, and our special Mother-Daughter events. Hopefully through these events, you will become comfortable and gain a sense of belonging to the CJ community; getting to know other CJ Moms, along with the CJ Faculty and Staff. The CJA Mothers’ Club will provide opportunities to ask questions, receive information and learn all about the Cor Jesu ways. And of course, have fun all along the way!   We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you better!

Upcoming Events

Please join us to pray the Rosary on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Fridays of each month!

Come join us in this opportunity to pray the Rosary for our daughters, ourselves, and the CJA staff. We will meet in the chapel every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Friday at 8:15 am. 

Mothers’ Club Volunteer Opportunities

We are always looking for volunteers. It’s fun and provides a special opportunity to give, while getting to know others. If you would like to be on a committee or help out with events, then check out our
Mothers' Club Volunteer page.

We are still in need of Chairs for the Junior Ring Reception and the Mother-Daughter Heart of Gold Treasure Hunt. If interested, please sign up on the volunteer page.
Some of our Fall events that especially need volunteers are the Dress ReSale, Prospective Student Open House and Goodies for Our Girls

We are also looking for a Grade Level Reps and we are always looking for Hospitality Committee volunteers for general help.

Thanks so much for your special consideration of these.  

Hospitality Committee (year round)

Serving the hospitality needs of the school. A simple way to get involved. Throughout the year, moms
are needed to help by providing yummy treats, setting up, serving, and cleaning up at events, such as
STUCO BBQs, parent/teacher conferences, college representative lunch, as well as many other
impromptu events. To be one of our special bakers/buyers or to help with set-up and serving,
contact Marguerite Stewart.


Bringing a sense of welcoming and community to all Cor Jesu Moms. Building special bonds through planned activities, which focus on mental, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth. Also, providing Greeters at Mothers’ Club and Cor Jesu events. Greeters provide a friendly welcome, offer directions, and answering questions to all guests. To volunteer, contact  Deanna Violette or Katie Calandro.

Grade Level Reps

We invite moms from each grade level to plan events specific to the parents of that class year. Plan fun informal events to help build community. Gather parents together for a Cor Jesu musical or sporting event, coordinate a fun happy hour, plan a special service project, etc. It's up to your imagination.
To become a Grade Level Rep, contact: Collette Capellupo.

The Marthas (year round)

CJA families may need some additional acts of kindness extended to them because of a difficult time  they are experiencing. We share the love of the heart Christ with them through prayers, making meals, lending a helping hand, or sending a kind messages to let them know they are are in our thoughts and prayers.  You can join the Cor Jesu prayer chain or offer other special services through this committee. To help, contact Jennifer Shearer.

CJA Spirit Stop (year round)

Help sell Cor Jesu spirit wear to students, parents, and alumnae of CJA!
Daytime, special evening and weekend shifts are available. If you would like to volunteer one day a month in the Spirit Stop, or for any of the special evening or weekend shifts, you can also sign up online - Spirit Stop Sign Up. You can also contact Jackie Tiemann with any questions.

GOODIES FOR OUR GIRLS (December - Fall Exam Week)
Lots of hands are needed for this event with the many different ways you can help! We fill goodie bags with prayers and snacks for the girls to start off the exam week spiritually and physically ready. Take part by donating some of the many treats we use to fill the goodie bags. Come help fill the goodie bags with those donated snacks. This event becomes very social as moms talk and walk round and round the Board Room table while assembling the bags. And finally, sign up to greet the girls the morning of their exams as they enter the building with one of these treat filled goodie bags.
