CSJB AND MANSION IN MAY
The Three Fields Mansion in Mendham
This year, the Sisters of CSJB are partnering with the Mansion in May event which is the signature fundraiser for Morristown Medical Center. The 2023 designer showcase mansion is Three Fields, located in Mendham, and we will be providing parking for the event on our school property. Visitors will park at CSJB, then travel by buses to the mansion to see rooms decorated by top interior designers. They’ll also be treated to a history presentation about our community as they wait for their buses. The event has been sponsored by the Women’s Association for Morristown Medical Center (WAMMC) since 1974 and it has raised over $12 million to support the hospital. Mansion in May runs throughout the month of May, and you can CLICK HERE for tickets.

ST. JOHN BAPTIST SCHOOL ALUMNAE
The Rev. Joyce McGirr (SJBS 61) saw the photo of schoolgirls with the SJBS sign in the December newsletter and pointed out that what we posted was only half the photo. She told us there was actually a whole other part of the photo containing her and the rest of the class of 1961. Joyce sent us the full photo, and we’re happy to see it in its full glory.
Joyce also provided us with this very helpful caption:

THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS!
Thank you to all our donors who raised over $480,000 to replace our 114-year-old septic system!
Next, we hope to replace the Convent stucco and restore our cemetery.
Thank you for supporting our Capital Campaign to help us continue God's work in our sacred space.
It's easy to help!
To donate by check, make your check out to:
St. John the Baptist Foundation
"Capital Campaign" on the ledger line of your check.
Mail to: PO Box 240

To donate by PAYPAL, go to
and in the "purpose" section of your online donation type "Capital Campaign."
Thank you for supporting our ministries of retreat and spiritual direction which are needed more than ever in today's world.
The State of New Jersey recently stopped giving grants for repairs to religious structures, so this has taken away half our funding for repairs and restorations. The COVID crisis has also negatively impacted our funding for these projects.
