English Teacher Wins Sr. Stang Award

For the fourth consecutive school year, a member of the Chaminade Julienne community was recognized by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for living out the legacy of one of its most beloved alumnae.

English teacher Molly Bardine was named a recipient of the 2013 Spirit of Sister Dorothy Stang Award. The award is given to Catholic faculty members, parish lay ministers, and graduating high school seniors who work to advance social justice by demonstrating the values of martyr Sr. Dorothy, SNDdeN, a 1949 graduate of Julienne High School – a CJ predecessor school.

Philanthropy Club Supports Non-profits

It’s no secret that service to others is synonymous with a CJ education, but guidance counselor Susan Eichenauer wanted students to learn even more about poverty in the local community, as well as what it takes for different organizations to serve those in need. She also wanted to introduce a new way for students to support those whose mission it is to help others, so she invited 10 students to join the newly formed philanthropy club.

The club is a member of Magnified Giving, a Cincinnati-based program founded by Roger Grein, which provides focus and structure for the club.

Assembly Recognizes Servant Leaders

Chaminade Julienne celebrated the value of volunteering at the school’s seventh annual Service Awards assembly May 8.

For the second consecutive school year, members of the CJ community donated in excess of 10,000 volunteer hours over and above what is required through religion curriculum. The total represents a contribution just shy of a quarter of a million dollars in today’s economy.

Say a Prayer for Moms this Sunday

According to Lifeguards moderator Karen Emmerich, religion teacher, the focus of the group’s effort was to show gratitude for moms and the gifts they give, especially the most important gift of all -- life.

Legacy of Sr. Dorothy Stang Alive at CJ

Today, Feb. 12, the Chaminade Julienne community remembers Sister Dorothy Stang, SNDdeN ‘49. On this day in 2005, Sr. Stang was murdered in Anapu, Brazil while living out God's call as a Catholic missionary. She served the poor and marginalized people of the Amazon, who were continually subjected to abuse and oppression from loggers and landowners, for nearly 30 years.

Celebrating Catholic Schools Week 2013

The 2013 celebration of National Catholic Schools Week is being observed Sunday, Jan. 27 through Saturday, Feb. 2. This year's theme is "Catholic Schools Raise the Standards." At CJ, we will mark the celebration with activities, prayer, reflections and an all-school Mass.

As a tangible representation of our unity, the students, faculty and staff at CJ, Alter, Carroll and Fenwick will recite a special prayer at 2:55 p.m. from their respective locations Monday afternoon. We invite others to pray along with us at that time.

Founder's Day Celebrated with Mass

On Jan. 16, a new wall on the first floor of our main hallways was built to separate our students from second floor construction. As the final piece of drywall was put up, the entire school was celebrating our annual Marianist and Notre Dame Founder’s Day Mass in Emmanuel Church. At the end of the liturgy, Brother Brandon Pauloch, S.M., spoke about Mary’s mantle or cloak, which shelters us like the walls of our community.
