The mission of Brother Martin High School is to form young people through a holistic education that fosters academic excellence in a caring, disciplined community which integrates Catholic tradition and the charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart to meet the needs of a changing world.
Ladies of the Shield is formed with the intention of establishing scholarships in honor of our husbands and sons as well as supporting Brother Martin High School and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and their lay colleagues through your continued involvement in the Brother Martin community.
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.
If you know of a wife or mother of an alumnus that would be interested in joining, please see the link for the membership form or call us at (504) 284-6700 for more information.
New upcoming events calendar coming in the 2015-2016 school year!
