May she rest in peace...


We received word a short while ago of the passing of Patricia Garrot, a longtime CMH math teacher.
Mrs. Garrot (as I will always recall her) taught at CMH from 1976 until her retirement in 2003. We have, and have had, many great faculty and staff at CMH. But, Pat Garrot fills a very special place for myself, and so many other CMH graduates. Her steady patience, hopeful expectations, and constant encouragement, were sources of immeasurable impact in the lives of so many.

Since her retirement, her impact on CMH has continued in annual donations in her honor to support the operations of the Math and Computer Engineering classes, as well as through a small but growing scholarship fund in her name - the Patricia Garrot Math and Computer Scholarship - providing tuition assistance to returning students excelling in these areas.

Please keep the repose of her soul, and the consolation of her family in your prayers in the coming days. As we receive information about arrangements, we will pass those on to you.

Requiescat in pace.

Fr. Paul Hartmann, '84

Fewer and fewer blog posts...

As you can tell, I have been using the Blog less and less for news and information about CMH.  Primarily only for a place to post lengthier texts or photos that can be linked to from elsewhere.

An Easter message from CMH

In no other religion’s understanding will God willingly suffer, and even die, out of love for all that He created.  To those others people are just pawns and playthings of the omnipotent.  But, for some chosen few – we, the new Israel – there is the knowledge that we are created in love and saved by love.  From that knowledge, we know then that we must live in love.

Love of God.
Love of neighbor.
Love of self.

Love of family.
Love of Church.
Love of country.

Love of right.
Love of justice.
Love of charity.

On this celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ, may every member of the Catholic Memorial Family have truly learned the love of Christ and be inspired to outwardly show deep love for Him.

Be assured of our prayers for you and your family every school day of the year.  Please support and pray for us in return.

May the Blessings of Christ resurrected by with you.

Our Lady of Memorial, pray for us!

Very Reverend Paul B. R. Hartmann, ‘84
