Ladies of the Shield was formed in 2006, with the intention of establishing scholarships in honor of our sons and/or husbands who are graduates of St. Aloysius, Cor Jesu or Brother Martin. The Ladies of the Shield also support Brother Martin High School and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart and their Partners in Mission through continued involvement in the Brother Martin community.
The Ladies of the Shield Scholarship Fund was completed in July of 2013. We now dedicate all funds raised to the Brother Jean Sobert, S.C. Student Activities Endowment at Brother Martin.
Our primary fundraising activity, “The Holiday Home Tour” is held in December each year.
The Ladies of the Shield also share their time and talents assisting at Parents Club meetings, Open House, and the Easter Egg Hunt.
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.

The Ladies of the Shield along with members of Brother Martin’s administration, President Greg Rando ’77, Principal Ryan Gallagher ’00, and Admissions Director Carlos Bogran III ’99, welcomed our new Crusader Moms and offered their congratulations to the Senior Moms.
