Starting Advent with Penance!
Yesterday, as we always do at the start of Advent, CMH celebrated an All-School Penance Service. After a Word Service where Fr. Curt Frederick preached, ten priests spent more than two hours hearing hundreds of confessions from CMH students.
At lunch afterwards, all of the assisting priests complimented the CMH students for their maturity, faith, and their deep sense of the meaning of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Thank you to the area priests who came to help yesterday:
Fr. Dennis Ackeret, senior priest (former CMH staff member)
Fr. Kevin McManaman, pastor, St. Joseph Parish, Big Bend
Fr. Curt Frederick, pastor, St. William/St. John Neuman Parishes, Waukesha
Fr. Bill Key, pastor, St. Joseph, Waukesha
Fr. Dan Janasik, pastor, St. Leonard, Muskego, CMH '97
Fr. Ralph Gross, pastor, St. Bruno, Dousman & St. Paul, Genesee
Fr. Howard Haase, pastor, St. Mary, Waukesha
Fr. Tony Zimmer, pastor, St. Anthony, Pewaukee
Fr. Brad Krawczyk, associate pastor, St. Dominic, Brookfield
At CMH the Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered not only at the Advent and Lenten Penance Services, opportunities are available to students weekly and when they go on their various retreats.
