This one day craft show is held the first Saturday in March. This will be the 18th year for this event hosted by the CBA Alumni Moms. Approximately 50 volunteers (both current and alumni parents) are needed for:
Moms of alumni sons that are interested in staying in touch with the mothers’ club can do so by contacting the alumni representative and having their information on the alumni members’ roster. The representative maintains the roster and is involved in the mothers’ club craft show and other events.
All school dances are held on Friday nights and run from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. (the proms are a bit longer). Couples are especially welcome to chaperone because there is usually a shortage of males to check the men’s room!! There are frequently more than 1,000 people at any given school dance, so there is little chance your son will even notice you are there. Refreshments are provided at all dances for chaperones, and those who help with the proms enjoy the dinner as well. Chaperones assist with:
Coat check before and after the dance
Monitoring exterior doors and general crowd control
In the past, dances have been scheduled as follows: Exact dates will be available when the school calendars are distributed.
September General School Dance 15-20 chaperones needed
December General School Dance 15-20 chaperones needed
February Freshman/Sophomore semi formal 5+ chaperones needed
May Senior Prom & Junior Prom 5+ Junior Parents needed

Committees for this event begin their work in the summer.
A Mothers’ club representative works with the fathers’ club providing support for various functions such as the Brother Andrew Golf Outing and the Father/Son Golf Outing. In return, the fathers’ club provides the mothers’ club support at our functions such as the art show and the mother/son dinner. This committee member will be in contact with the fathers’ club president and attend a few meetings as needed.
This committee provides the refreshments for monthly mothers’ club meetings and various school events throughout the year. The refreshments are simple: cookies, sandwiches, fruit platters, coffee, tea and soda. All refreshments are purchased from local vendors – no cooking or baking is expected from the committee members.
This committee is responsible for getting legislative information pertaining to the CBA community to the parents of CBA. You may be asked to send postcards or e-mails and make phone calls to our legislators to help protect against any loss of funding to non-public schools, (i.e. funds for busing and technology). This committee will work with the telephone/email committee, the school office and the N.J. Alliance of Catholic School Families on an as needed basis.
This is a very special spring event in which the CBA boys escort their mothers to a lovely dinner complete with a small gift auction and raffle. This committee, consisting of between 10 and 15 moms, organizes the evening by:
Working with the catering hall
Collecting donation for gift baskets
Organizing a 50/50 raffle
There is a photographer available to capture the special moment with Mother and Son, as many moms have enjoyed comparing the photos from year to year.
Every two months, from September to May, the mothers’ club publishes an on-line newsletter. The newsletter includes a letter from the President of CBA, the mothers’ and fathers’ club presidents, along with information regarding service and various ministries. This committee sends out reminders of deadlines, request and gathers information for publication, edits, and produces the newsletter.
This lovely day is meant to be a day of reflection, prayer and sharing for CBA Moms and Alumni Moms. It is held during the Lenten Season at the San Alphonse Retreat House in Long Branch. The day runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and includes the celebration of Mass. The committee chairperson coordinates the speaker, the Priest, interacts with the San Alphonse Retreat House and accepts the reservations.
This committee organizes and administers the annual tuition raffle which is drawn at the annual father/son breakfast held in March. One lucky family receives full year tuition and one receives a half year.
