Mothers' Club

Join the Mothers' Club

The Mothers' Club has been in existence for over 80 years as a driving force within Mount Saint Joseph High School. We strongly support the belief that our young men learn by example. Therefore, by example, we strive to instill a sense of volunteerism and dedication to MSJ and its surrounding community. Our hospitality provides a warm, welcoming atmosphere at the Open House, Freshman Orientations, Welcome Teas, and many other student and faculty events.

Involvement in the Mothers' Club allows mothers, grandmothers, and guardians to join in the various in-school and extra-curricular activities of a school you will grow to love as much as your sons do! While an emphasis is placed on service and hospitality with an occasional dose of fundraising, it is not all hard work in the Mothers' Club. The benefits for YOU will be fantastic friendships, a feeling of connection to the school and to our sons, the opportunity to provide service to so many different events, and a better understanding of what is happening at MSJ both during and after the school day.

Meetings are normally held the first Tuesday of the month in the MSJ cafeteria and we promise lots of energy, fellowship and fun. The funds raised by the Mothers' Club have contributed to student scholarships, community outreach, the annual senior post-prom party, building and technology updates and enhancements, passenger vans, faculty dinners, and student recognition ceremonies. Join us! All are welcome!
