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

Join students and members of CJ’s Right to Life group in saying a special prayer this Mother’s Day for the women who welcomed us into the world.

The Lifeguards, a pro-life student organization, spent the school week leading up to Sunday, May 12 preparing appreciations and sharing reflections with their classmates. 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.

CJ Students Serve in Spirit of Advent Season

For senior members of FLIGHT (Faith Leaders in God’s Hands Today) and Eagle softball players, serving others is just as much a part of celebrating Christmas as decorating the tree and hanging the stockings.

Both groups were spotted spreading Christmas cheer among the young and elderly members of the greater Dayton community during the first week in December. According to Kelli Kinnear, director of ministry and service, creating a holiday tradition of giving back helps keep students reminded of the real reason for the season.
