St. Charles Mothers Club

Welcome to the St. Charles Motherhood of the Brotherhood

The St. Charles Mothers Club is a volunteer-service club of mothers, stepmothers, guardians and grandmothers of current and former St. Charles students. They automatically acquire membership when their son or grandson enrolls at St. Charles. Even if you are unable to attend meetings or volunteer for an event, you are still very much a part of the Mothers Club!  Attend when you can, whether it be regularly, far and few or only once in a blue moon, know you will always be warmly welcomed!

Each year, the club aims to supplement its volunteer activities with a financial donation from the proceeds of the Cardinal Christmas Auction and the Mother-Son Dinner Dance. The money raised will help fund capital improvements and need-based financial aid for students.

Purpose and History of the Mothers Club

The St. Charles Mothers Club has served the school for decades and made considerable contributions to the community through its volunteer efforts and fundraising activities. The group is the central volunteer-organizing body for the school. In addition to our standing committees, which run specific events, mothers often are called upon to simply “help out” at the school.
