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. 

Goodies for Our Girls

Exam week is quickly approaching. We need your assistance in preparing goodie bags filled with prayer/encouragement cards and snacks for our girls to start off the exam week spiritually and physically ready.  Please consider donating treats, time, or treasure.

Please use the following link to see what donations are needed:

Any donations can be delivered to the Main Office through November 24. (If donating clementines, please deliver December 11.)

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Catalano at

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 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 Samantha Ermold.

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.

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 Nancy Kroll with any questions.

Mothers’ Club Events

Attend or Volunteer at Any of Our Mothers’ Club Events

Please plan to join us for our fall and winter Mother/Daughter events.  Our fall event is a fun night of Bunco.  We are still planning our winter event.

Finally, we end our year with our Dessert Extravaganza on April 23, 2020, where we thank our volunteers, bid farewell to our Senior Moms and welcome our newest members, the moms of our new incoming Freshmen.

You are welcome to join in praying the Rosary with other CJ Moms on Friday mornings,  the second, third and fourth Friday of each month, in the Cor Jesu Chapel at 8:15am, after drop off. For info, contact Mary Reschke or Chris Petersen.

Following CJ's first of the school year’s First Friday Liturgy, join as moms gather over coffee and bagels. Take a little break before dashing out, meet new friends & reconnect with old ones after summer’s break. For more info, contact Deborah Brennan or Patti Litke

Get to know other moms and girls while spending special time with your daughter, 
playing this easy fun game! To help, contact Bonnie Noonan

Students bring in dresses & shoes to sell, and all shop the fantastic bargains. Moms organize and tag apparel in the morning and help at the sale during and after school.
To help, contact: Connie Lambert

This is one of our most treasured and memorable events! The day begins with the celebration of the Liturgy, followed by a delightful meal and ends with the traditional cheers by our student body. 
To help, contact: Karen Rakonick

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. To help, contact Melissa Catalano
