CMH, Franciscan Sisters, and Vocations

The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity faithfulled served the CMH school community for over fifty years. We are indebted to loving and sacrificial service.
From today's Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter --

Listening for God's call at Franciscan camp
Camp offers chance to learn about Franciscan Sisters

MANITOWOC[CMH Senior] Kathryn Harvey, 17, has enjoyed serving on the God Squad at the Wisconsin Catholic Youth Rally the past couple of years.

"We're the Energizer bunnies who help lead worship," Harvey said Wednesday with a big smile on her face. She was one of 54 young women at this week's Camp Franciscan hosted at the motherhouse of the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity.

"The goal is to help them build relationships with other campers, get to know us and help them in their own spiritual growth," said Sister Mary Ann Spanjers, vocation director for the local religious community of Catholic women founded in 1869.

Yes, the hope is the campers might consider choosing to lead a "professed" life and eventually take vows of obedience, chastity and poverty. But the campers — who came from around Wisconsin and eight other states — weren't asked about their possible religious life intentions to be part of the three-day experience.

At this point, the Waukesha Catholic Memorial High School senior plans to explore becoming a Salvatorian sister, which would be cause for celebration, said Sister Spanjers who set up a roundtable discussion with the teenager and three other campers...

Rectory Chapel Progressing

While I am at my mom's home recuperating from neck surgery a great CMH volunteer who has been restoring some wood furnishings from the old convent to be used in the refurbished rectory, has finished restoring a mantle that will serve as a back altar, or tabernacle altar, for the rectory Chapel.

It has been important to me since we started discussing the rectory project that I wanted a Eucharistic Chapel for myself and for any other residents who come to live there.

You can see from the picture the great work that has been done. I am hoping to someday get a mosaic or tapestry to place in the opening of the mantle.

Thanks to all who have worked so hard to make the CMH Rectory such a welcoming place that supports the wider community.

What do CMH and Apple Computer's "Worldwide Developers' Conference" have in common?


June 9, 2008


The Art Department at Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) today announced the launch of the CMH ART DEPARTMENT WALLPAPER GALLERY application for the iPhone. The CMH iPhone Art Gallery features ten digital images created by student artists, and is available via iTunes for 99¢.


"This is an amazing opportunity to bring the digital artwork of our student artists to a truly global audience via the iPhone," according to Kathleen Hanlon Sampon, an art teacher in the Catholic Memorial High School Art Department. "Since our iPhone Application went on sale via iTunes, it has been purchased by people around the world - and the money from sales goes to directly support our student artists!"

The CMH ART DEPARTMENT WALLPAPER GALLERY features the artwork of ten student artists, delivered as mobile wallpapers directly to the picture library of the iPhone. The mobile art wallpapers are optimized for display on the iPhone, and all the images can be 'flipped' to reveal additional information about the respective student artists.

This application also includes a unique PICTURE FRAME feature. Simply tap the PLAY icon on the toolbar, and the iPhone is transformed into a digital picture frame which cycles through every image in the gallery at five-second intervals. The MOBILE PICTURE FRAME over-rides the auto-lock setting so users can enjoy an arty slideshow while the iPhone is docked and charging.

The CMH iPhone application was created by START MOBILE, which is donating 100% of revenues from the sale of the mobile art gallery to the Catholic Memorial High School Art Department. The CEO of START MOBILE is CMH alum John Doffing, Class of '88.

"Raising the money to fully fund our school’s budgets is increasingly difficult in this challenging economy," according to Kathleen Hanlon Sampon. "The added income from this innovative opportunity will help to ensure the ongoing strength of our department.”


An End of the Year Message to CMH Family and Friends

June 8, 2009

Dear CMH Family and Friends:

Well, graduation is done and 176 new graduates are on their way. It was a wonderful celebration of the accomplishments of these young people as well as recognition of the enduring legacy of CMH. I hope that all who are connected with CMH are rightfully proud of both.

Last August, my first general communication to the community was in the August Newsletter to parents. There, I wrote about how the work of the boiler project made the whole building feel like a construction zone. Because of this, I coined for myself a three-part goal for the year – Building on Legacy, Building up Relationships, and Building with Accomplishments. I believe that in this first year I made progress in all three.

Quickly, I took to referring to those building steps as our process, and calling our product the graduation of young people who are Happy, Healthy, and Holy. With yesterday’s graduation ceremony I know that we have accomplished this for the 56th time since CMH’s founding.

Undeniably, there were challenges to us this year. Some were weathered as difficult, yet passing storms. Others, like the impact of a distressed economy, have lingering effects and give cause for prospective concern. On this latter point, thanks to the tremendous work of our Development office, the generosity of so many of you, and the frugality of faculty and staff, the CMH budget will end the year only slightly in the red. Through the remaining weeks of the fiscal year I will continue seeking contributions to help avert this deficit. So, if you have not yet given to the Crusader Fund this year or you can make an additional contribution, I pray for your assistance at this time!

Looking ahead, our new principal, Bob Hall, will start on July 1st, but he and I have been in regular contact. With twice as much interest as anticipated, the pre-engineering program, Project Lead the Way, will be a great addition to the CMH curriculum. Development of an adult Catholic faith formation program for our entire faculty is in process, and efforts continue to make our Catholic identity and our Theology department the strongest elements that serve to set CMH apart from all other schools in the area. I hope that all of you are excited about the good things to come.

In close, I would like to make a selfish request – I ask your prayers. Tomorrow I will be undergoing surgery to remove a herniated disc in my neck. I have delayed this surgery for some time so that it would take place after school let out. I hope to be out of the office for only a week or so, and look forward to returning with a lot less pain and a lot more energy. Successful surgery is just one more reason for me to be excited about the prospects of my second year as president of CMH.

Thank you to all who have done so much for us this past year. Thank you for God’s many blessings which have been bestowed on us this past year.

Our Lady of Memorial, pray for us!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Very Reverend Paul Hartmann
