Mothers Club

Started in 1927, the SLUH Mothers Club is a vital service to SLUH. Through a variety of social, spiritual and fundraising activities, the Mothers Club provides a wonderful opportunity for mothers of current students to partner with SLUH in the development of their sons. Above all, the organization helps make SLUH feel like home to its young men. EVERY mom at SLUH is a part of Mothers Club and a "Mom for Others." Your contributions make a difference each and every day.

Mothers Club President's message

SLUH Moms,

As we begin this Advent season, I pray that you find joy, peace and hope in God’s everlasting love for us.  

We are nearing the end of another successful calendar year at SLUH. Thank you to everyone who has attended or volunteered at our different events!  SLUHtique was a wonderful shopping experience; a big thank you to Heather Locker and Allison Cunningham for chairing this event!

The Janet Knobbe-Viox Loyola Santa Shop takes place on December 2.  This amazing community event is always a very rewarding experience to witness!  It is a blessing to see our wonderful SLUH family in action sharing joy, love and generosity.  Thank you to Katie Mungenast for leading this event for a second year.

Adopt-A-Family is in full swing.  Sign-up Genius links have been shared and are filling up.  This is another wonderful community event and is all about sharing and giving during the Christmas Season. Thank you to Allison Amann for coordinating this important outreach event for us!

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on Fall Social and the Mother-Son Mass and Brunch. We appreciate your input and are working to incorporate your suggestions for next year’s events.  

If there is anything we can help you with, please contact me at moms@sluh.org.

May your 2023 be filled with peace, joy and love!  And if you have a few moments during this crazy Christmas season, give yourself the gift of quiet time in our SLUH Chapel to pray, journal or thank God for our blessings.  No matter your faith, all are welcome. 

Warm regards,

Andrea Brockmann
Mothers Club President 2022-23

THE JANET KNOBBE-VIOX LOYOLA SANTA SHOP
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2022

Chair: Katie Mungenast katiemungenast@mac.com

You are invited to play Santa as we bring the excitement of Christmas shopping to the boys at Loyola Academy on December 2. Donations of new gifts for all ages are being accepted November 1-18.

Please view our flyer of the items we need to make this event so magical, click HERE.

To help with preparations before or on the day of the event, please click HERE.

The renamed Janet Knobbe-Viox Loyola Santa Shop is sponsored by the Mothers Club and the Alumni Mothers Club. Much of the success of this program comes from SLUH AMC President and past LSS Chairperson, Janet. She was deeply passionate about the mission at Loyola Academy through volunteering, tutoring and teaching robotics. Tragically, Janet suddenly passed away in mid-December 2020. 

 

Adopt a family
november 28 - December 9, 2022

We need a parent to represent each advisory group and support the Mother's Club by sending email reminders to sign-up to donate and then reminders to bring in their donations. They are also encouraged to go into the classroom during advisory with incentives to donate (example, donuts). Finally, the parents will also help in the mornings to collect donations with Santa hats, candy and Christmas Carols. This all happens the week after Thanksgiving.
