Junior Continues Got Veggies? Mission

A student in the Class of 2018 is ensuring a successful 2016 Senior Capstone project lives on over the summer and throughout the upcoming school year.
Evan Eichenauer ’18 has enlisted several other CJ students to collect fresh fruits and vegetables which in turn are donated to Catholic Social Services as part of the Got Veggies? capstone created last year. 

Life-Changing Marianist LIFE Week

Eight students spent what they described as a life-changing week with more than 60 people from around the world as part of the Marianist LIFE Week at Mount Saint John.

“I gained a lot from my time at LIFE week, although most of which is very difficult or impossible to put into words,” said Andrew Buchanan ‘18. “I met a ton of new people who I became very close with and I am grateful to call them my family. I grew closer to God than ever before and grew closer to the other CJ kids who went with me.”

Students Reflect on Solsberry Mission Trip

Incoming sophomores, juniors and seniors recently spent five days in Solsberry, Indiana to serve those in the community and to learn more about themselves as part of a mission trip at Solsberry Hill.

"I attended the same trip last year so I knew what to expect, but I also knew there were parts of myself that I hadn't discovered quite yet," shared Brianna Gavin '17. "I knew those parts of myself may be used to make improvements within the community to make it a better place."

Capstone Group to Hold Paddle for Pups Event

A Class of 2017 Senior Capstone Group is looking to put more animals in forever homes with their event, Paddle for Pups, on Thursday, June 16.

"My dad owns Adventures on the Great Miami and last summer, we started doing Doggie Paddle Days where people brought their dogs to go canoeing," Kayte Jackson '17 explained. "I talked to the Humane Society and they said this would be a great way to hold a fundraising and adoption event."

2016 Service Awards Honors Students

Students who went above and beyond the expectation of service during the 2015-2016 school year were recognized during the 10th annual Service Awards on Wednesday, May 4.

"CJ is unique in having an assembly to just honor service," said Kelli Kinnear, Director of Ministry & Service. "Every school has academic and athletic ceremonies, but it's also important for us to award students who are doing amazing things in the community."

Capstone Spreads Awareness About Deforestation

More than 80% of the world’s forests have been destroyed and only 10% of original forests in the United States still remains. Those facts, discovered by the Senior Capstone Group of John Craighead, Morgan Rogers, Tim Menker and Thomas Wilimitis, ignited the students' goal to spread awareness about deforestation.

"We saw trees being cut down and I'm distantly related to Sr. Dorothy Stang, SNDdeN '49, so that made sense why I felt like something needed to be done," said Menker.
