VOLUNTEERS NEEDED for Baccalaureate Mass Reception!
We still need a few volunteers to help at the Baccalaureate Mass Reception Friday, May 17 in the evening. Many hands make light work! Can you spare a couple of hours? Sign up here!

Senior Moms: a Reminder for Your Sons
Your senior sons will receive a reminder during graduation practice next week to complete a Google form (from their phone) so that Brophy can stay in touch with them after graduation. They should fill it out right away, during the practice, but a little reminder from Mom wouldn’t hurt in case they don’t!  Brophy is expanding its alumni efforts, and we don’t want your boys to miss out on information and fun events when they are home from college. As alumni moms, you will be hearing from us more too, as we expand our efforts to keep you more connected to Brophy after graduation. Contact our Alumni Moms Chair Trescha Peeples at for more information.

Brophy/Xavier Project Graduation, Saturday, May 18
Senior moms, register online now at You know your big-time senior won’t want to miss out, so cross another thing off your to-do list and sign him up today! It takes just three minutes, no kidding, and then you’re set. The party is at CrackerJax, starting with check-in at 7:30 p.m. at Brophy.
