In 1955, the Sisters of Charity of St. Joan Antida needed a way to engage the community and promote SJA, the region’s newest all-girl high school. The Sisters decided to share their students’ favorite lunch, homemade spaghetti and meatballs with the community. A Milwaukee tradition was born.

Once a year, the Sisters take their secret recipe out of the "SJA vault" for a spaghetti dinner like no other. Over the past 64 years, this event has raised more than $1 million for generations of SJA women. In 2018 alone we sold more than 1,000 meals! As we celebrate our 65th anniversary as a school, please help us continue to grow.

Meals are only $12 for Adults, $11 for SJA Alumnae/Seniors, and include salad and bread. Coffee or milk is included with dine-in meals. Additional beverages and cannoli will be available for purchase at the event.

NEW THIS YEAR: Please consider making a contribution to our English Department Book Drive! Purchased books can be dropped off at Spaghetti with the Sisters or contributions can be made at the event. A list of needed materials can be found by here:

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday, November 3, 2019 between 11:30 AM to 5 PM at SJA!
