Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week: Nov. 14-21

For more than 25 years, the CJ community has spent the week before Thanksgiving thinking of others by participating in the national Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week.

"The timing is nice because it is right before Thanksgiving and we can be thankful for our blessings," Director of Ministry & Service Kelli Kinnear said. "It can inspire us to give more."

The school's theme for this year's Hunger & Homelessness Awareness week is #bemercyCJ.

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."
