Established in 2006, the organization’s mission is to endow scholarships in the name of our sons and/or husbands who are graduates of St. Aloysius, Cor Jesu or Brother Martin.
The Ladies of the Shield endowed the Ladies of the Shield Scholarship Fund in July of 2013. We are now working on completing the Brother Jean Sobert, S.C. Student Activities Endowment at Brother Martin.
The Ladies of the Shield has not only contributed financially to Brother Martin High School, but share their time and talents at Parents Club meetings, Open House, and the Easter Egg Hunt.
Our primary fundraising activity, “The Holiday Home Tour” is held in December each year.
