Mothers' Club

The mission of the Mothers’ Club is to promote interaction between the mothers of Prep students through spiritual, cultural, and charitable activities.

The defining goal of this organization is to extend the spirit of cooperation throughout the Prep as well as to support the community through fundraising. Since its inception in 1934, the Mothers’ Club has accomplished its mission by organizing and staging a variety of special events that take place throughout the school year. Not only do the mothers in the club form lifelong friendships with each other, they also create Prep memories while building stronger relationships with their sons. All Prep moms are invited to participate in any way they are able.

News Update! Change on PA Clearance requirements: All Prep Moms who would like to volunteer may no longer be required to get fingerprinted. If you have been a resident of PA for 10 or more years, are not being paid and can swear/affirm to what is listed on the attached disclosure statement, you will be able to forego fingerprints. However, if you have not been a PA resident for 10 years, or you are being paid, or are unable to swear/affirm to what is listed on the attached disclosure statement, you will still need to be fingerprinted. Any Mom who has an out-of-state residence will still be required to be fingerprinted. 

MOMS who volunteer at events are REQUIRED to have up to date security clearances including fingerprinting. There will be a representative at the Prep on September 9, from 9a.m. - 4p.m., for fingerprinting. Please contact Joe Dougherty, Director of Human Resources, at to sign up for fingerprinting, or to find out about alternative locations and getting reimbursed.

The Prep Shop Needs Volunteers!

This is a great way to meet new friends, reconnect with old friends, and raise money for our sons’ school! The shop is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., occasional evenings, and occasionally on a weekend for a special event.

Click here for the sign up sheet. The first time you work, you will be paired with an experienced volunteer who can show you the ropes! Therefore, don’t sign up with another “new” mom until you have worked one shift.

You will need to have your security clearances completed. Click here for all the necessary forms. Contact Joe Dougherty with questions about security clearances.

Any questions about working at the shop should be directed to Karen Belding or Genine Fedele.   Thanks for volunteering!
