One small parish, and one big announcement!

CMH Junior, Kelsie Golabowski, speaks to the gathered congregation of her home parish, St. Therea of Avila, in Eagle, WI.


This weekend, as part of my continuing effort to eventually visit, and thank, all of the twenty-six supporting parishes of CMH, I celebrated all of the parish masses at St. Theresa Parish in Eagle. I was joined by Julie Lindahl and Mary Hutchens from the Office of Admissions, and Kelsie Golabowski who spoke at all of the masses to express her thanks for everything the her home parish has done for her, and for CMH. We also had the pleasure of having Mr. Jim Yourkovich, a CMH faculty member, and a parishioner, as our lector at one of the masses.
.
Just by its size and architecture, St. Theresa could well be the last "country church" in Waukesha County. Although the worship space is small, the community is vibrant, devout and was very welcoming to us. It was a great experience.
.
Thus far we have been hosted by a number of parishes for these CMH profile weekends --
.
St. Agnes, Butler
St. Paul, Genesee Depot
St. Charles, Hartland
St. Anthony of the Lake, Pewaukee
St. Mary Visitation, Elm Grove
St. Theresa Avila, Eagle
.
We are scheduled to visit St. Joseph. Big Bend for the weekend of March 14th & 15th. Mark your calendars.

Now, the big announcement -- I am not being named the new Archbishop of New York.
.
More importantly, as of the end of the first semester, 382 CMH students made the honor roll. Each is to be congratulated for the hard work and discipline that is needed to attain this.

For a listing of all the students on the honor roll, please go to the CMH website.
