“The Brothers of the Sacred Heart, which is the religious order that runs Brother Martin, rely on the support of its alumni to operate. Due to their effective alumni engagement in the past, St. Aloysius, Cor Jesu (the two schools that consolidated to form Brother Martin in 1969), and Brother Martin have been thriving in the greater New Orleans Area for 150 years. This can be said about our brotherhood as well. In order for our Fraternity and our Chapter to be successful, alumni engagement is key.”
