Members of the Marianist Provincial Council visited the Washington Street Community in Dayton to mark its official closing. On June 15, the council members prayed with the community and shared a festive meal. On June 16, about 100 people gathered to celebrate the Eucharist in the chapel of Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School.
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.
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.
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.

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.
Chaminade Julienne seniors will present their work implementing projects to address social justice issues at the Sister Dorothy Stang Symposium. This event is open to the public Thursday, May 2 and begins at 6:30 p.m. in the CJ library. A reception will follow at 8 p.m.
With Earth Day just on the horizon, a group of environmentally-conscious volunteers put forth their efforts to better the planet by dedicating a tree planting service project to the memory of Julienne graduate and martyr Sr. Dorothy Stang, SNDdeN, ‘49, alongside members of her family.
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.
It’s been 40 years since the notoriously polarizing Supreme Court decision to allow abortion was passed into law. At the time in early 1973, predecessors Chaminade, Julienne and St. Joseph’s were still separate high schools, and the first members of the CJ graduating class of 2013 would not be conceived for more than 20 years.
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.
