Mission: The Christian Brothers Auxiliary (CBA), often affectionately called the Momsโ€™ Club, is a very active organization built on traditions that date back 85 years when the founding women met to meet the needs of the Christian Brothers who were here to educate the young men in the Detroit area. From that time in 1926, the CBA has expanded its mission to include fundraising events to support the needs of the school and its students. The CBA is proud to have contributed over $1.7 million since 1982. Just as in the past, the CBA today is made up of many dedicated women, including new recruits and freshmen moms, to the more experienced members who stay on long after their sons have graduated.

A message that touched our hearts yesterday that we just had to share ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’›

"CBA Leadership and Members:
Thank you for making this bright morning brighter! What a wonderful surprise delivered right to my door. The wine and dessert will certainly compliment dinner but your gesture will sweeten the entire day plus! And who does not like an 'We Love You' lawn sign! Fun.

Too, thank you for all you do and I for one know it to be so much more than people know. One of the reasons De La Salle Collegiate is such a special place for young man to come of age academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually is due to the support provided by the CBA. It appears that anything that requires detail or polish you as a group are a part of.

Postscript: I am a little remiss in saying thank you for sponsoring the May Crowning & Rosary, another fine example of your resolve for what is good. Even if there may be constraints you are able to overcome and make it happen. You are woman of action on a noble mission.

Again thank you for the sign and bag of joy!
May God Bless You and Yours Always!" -- John Berlin

In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week at De La Salle Collegiate High School the CBA was delighted to surprise our outstanding teachers with treats from Filipo Marc Winery and Nothing Bundt Cakes. We know we have the best teachers and with this lawn sign everyone else will, too.

Special thanks to Nate Maus, Chris Dean and Brent Widdows for making the deliveries.

We were touched with many teachers' notes of gratitude including this one...

"I canโ€™t thank the CBA enough for the kindness and thoughtfulness you showed to us today. It was an extraordinary boost of morale for me to see the sign and receive these gifts. Sometimes all we need is for someone to say โ€œI see you and what youโ€™re doing.โ€ You did that for me today, on a very personal level. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart." -- Kathy Erickson

On Friday, May 1 we continued the beautiful Christian Brothers Auxiliary's tradition of honoring our Blessed Mother by crowning her and praying the rosary together.

While the pandemic causes us to be physically apart, we were together in prayer. Many CBA members and friends prayed in their cars while parked at De La Salle Collegiate High School. Many, many others gathered in prayer via Facebook Live. It was very moving to feel the power of prayer!

It is a longstanding tradition at the annual CBA Fashion Show to recognize and honor active members who have a son in the De La Salle Collegiate graduating class. The CBA expresses its thanks to those members who support, are involved and have taken a leadership role in the Christian Brothers Auxiliary by inviting them to model in the Fashion Show along with their sons. Because of the pandemic, our 2020 Fashion Show was canceled and we were not able to honor CBA Second Vice President Michelle Lachajewski, CBA Corresponding Secretary Sandy McClure, CBA Historian Pam Troszak and CBA Junior Representative Shannon Wiegand in our traditional manner.

While these four wonderful women will take the runway next year with the Class of 2021, we were thrilled they accepted our invitation to lead the decades of the rosary while their sweet sons shared the reflections of the luminous mysteries of the rosary. Thank you CBA Moms & Senior Sons for all you've given to the DLS community and for leading us in prayer so beautifully!

Special thanks to CBA President Kathleen Cyr for the vision and effort to have a virtual May Crowning, to CBA Past President Leslie Cahill for writing the beautiful reflections, to Matt Lachajewski (DLS Class of '22) for taking and sharing pictures of our May Crowning, to DLS Campus Ministry for your assistance with this event and to our wonderful Brothers for sharing in this event with us and for singing the always touching "Salve Regina."

St. John Baptist de La Salle...Pray for Us!
Live, Jesus, in our Hearts...Forever!

The Holy Father Pope Francis asks that we bless each other.
CBA Past President Leslie Cahill shared this beautiful blessing and we wanted to share it with all of the wonderful women of the CBA. Thanks, Leslie, for this uplifting and loving prayer!

I bless you in the name of the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit.
I bless you, your heart, your health, your home, your family, your job, your finances, your plans and dreams, and I wish you peace. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

What if everyone on Sunday April 5 in the morning, puts a branch on the door of their house or on the window, to celebrate Palm Sunday.

It could be any green branch you can get. This would help, despite the social distancing, to be connected as we enter into the Holiest of Weeks.

Want to join?

We may be physically isolated, but not separated. We are united as the members of the body of Christ. We are the Church.

SHARE.
