Alumni Mothers' Club

Welcome to the U of D Jesuit Alumni Mothers' Club page! Our Alumni Mothers’ Club (AMC) mission is to be a service and social organization. We sponsor activities to bring UDJ Alumni Mothers together to maintain our strong community as we continue building camaraderie, fellowship, friendships, and connections. Of course, we always strive to enhance the Alumni support for and connection to our school.

Our reunion Mass and Brunch was a wonderful event held on a sunny Sunday in September. Great friends, great food, an inspiring Mass with Fr. Munz and a lovely tribute to Alice Barringer in thanks for all she has meant to so many of us. Jim Adams was kind enough produce a video tribute to Alice. If you would like to see it, please click on the link to go to a private YouTube site. Enjoy!
