Monthly All School Liturgy

The CMH community gathered for an all school liturgy for two good reasons today: 1) It is the best way to start Homecoming Week; and 2) today's feast of St. Francis of Assisi is very special to CMH because of the decades of service given us by the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. We kept all of those sisters in our most special of intentions today.

Joining us today were Deacon Scott Campbell of St. William's Parish and a CMH parent, as well as Fr. Dan Janisik, a CMH alum from the class of '97.

For this Homecoming week mass, members of the CMH Football and Poms teams took on major liturgical roles and ministries.

Today's gospel of the Good Samaritan reminds all of us of the charitable emphasis of St. Francis, and of the responsibility we all have to classmates and neighbors.

Fr. Dan's homecoming to CMH for this mass is a tremendous sign of both the lifelong sense of family which CMH offers as well as the emphasis we have always had on promoting vocations.

All of us Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity thank you at CMH for your prayers. And we are ever grateful for our memories of your faith and commitment to Catholic education.

Please enjoy our 'Streaming Songs of Peace' on our website in honor of St. Francis' Feast. We are presenting an opportunity to contemplate peace with Franciscans International and many gifted artists throughout the month of October. May the Lord bless you.
