CMH Celebrates Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary


This morning all of CMH's students and faculty hiked across the snow covered valley to St. Mary's Parish for an all-school liturgy. Today is the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a holy day of obligation for all Catholics.
.
Concelebrating at the mass, and preaching the homily, was Fr. Michael Scheip (pictured above). While the school commounity had been told of Fr. Scheip before, not all of the students recalled that he is a bona fide Catholic priest who happens to be a convert to Catholicism and happens also to have a wife and five kids (one of whom is a sophamore here at CMH).
.
He gave the community wonderful insights about using the example of the Blessed Virgin Mother as part of our preparation to encounter her Son on Christmas.
.
Thank you, Fr. Mike.
