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.

hello from your mothers club president

Dear SLUH Family,

Happy 2021!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and were able to connect with your loved ones over the break! I am so grateful to you for your generosity to Adopt-A-Family and Loyola Academy last month. Because of your love, Christmas was brighter for many families! 

Join me on Fridays at MAGIS to pray for our SLUH community! This is a great way to connect with other parents in person!  Also, mark your calendars for the next AMDG speaker series on January 21 and fuel your soul! 

Senior Parents, please plan to attend a very important informational meeting on February 2 at 7:00 p.m. in Si Commons. Senior Moms are needed to volunteer and bake for the last 2021 cookie sale on February 4 and 5.  Check the senior webpage often for updates.

Looking ahead, please save the date of March 6 for Virtual Trivia! Carol Swiecicki and Toni Zychinski have been busy making plans for a fun online event!  Registration will open up soon.  If finances are a concern, please email Dr. Kesterson at bkesterson@sluh.org 

May God bless you and keep you safe and healthy!

Most sincerely, Susan

"Vitual" Trivia Night - Saturday, March 6, 6 p.m.

Save the date for this virtual event is via Zoom, using breakout rooms and online forms! It's a safe and fun evening that invites you to support our community while coming together with other SLUH families for some board game themed trivia and games!  

GUESS WHO is coming to the upcoming SLUH Virtual Trivia Night?  We'll give you a CLUE. Any SLUH (entering, current, or alumnus or family member) people who are in PURSUIT of a fun time! This game night will be PERFECTION; it's quite the OPERATION, with really no RISK at all. Since we know that LIFE has changed in-person events a bit and if it's not too much TROUBLE, start gathering your group, of up to 10 SLUH folks per team, before registration opens January 31.

To be clear while teams are typically 10 players,

  • you may CONNECT 4 or more family members who live in your own home to help you play online;
  • you may register as a team and join your friends online; or
  • if you are an UNO player we're happy to help you join others from your son's grade to complete a team!

You'll be SORRY if you don't attend! The event won't cost you a PAYDAY as tickets are only $25 per family.This CANDYLAND is filled with games and prizes, the annual decoration contest will also still take place, and there will even be pre-order food items for sale for your HUNGRY, HUNGRY HIPPOS.

We promise to lay to rest this JUMANJI game that began in 2020 and kick off Spring 2021 with a great time for all!

Brought you to by the MASTERMINDs of SLUH's Mothers Club Trivia Co-Chairs Carol Swiecicki and Toni Zychinski. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at mcresponse@sluh.org 

SLUH Magis Parents Prayer GroupParents, join us each Friday from 2:45-3:15pm, as we pray together for our SLUH community.  All faiths are welcome!  Please enter SLUH from the circle drive entrance and check in with Mimi Hartung, SLUH receptionist.  Mimi will direct you to the Theater Green Room.  Please wear your mask. 

Why is the parents’ prayer group named “Magis”? According to The Jesuit Post, "Magis means more.” Magis is about excellence...how we can do things better and how we can do things more in service to God. It relates directly to the phrase "for the greater glory of God.” If you’d like to know more about why we were inspired to choose the name Magis for our prayer group, please watch this fun video.

Email any prayer requests to moms@sluh.org or the Marthas committee chair, Tracy Lawhorn, at t6laws@gmail.com. For the first few weeks, we will share readings from Sister Mary Lea Hill’s book, Blessed are the Stressed.
