CCS Families,

We had some fantastic student performances this past week to complete
the first semester. Our concert band gave stellar performances at
Charleston Yacht Club and Second Sunday on King Street. They were
great ambassadors for our school last weekend. Last night, the 4th
grade Beginner Band and Upper School Concert Band put on an excellent
Christmas concert for our families and friends. We are very proud of
Mrs. Draftz, our band director, and all of our band students.

Finally, today we had our school wide spelling bee. We had 18
participants from grades 3-8. We are proud of all the students.
Congratulations to our top three spellers: First place, Joshua (Gr
7); Second place, Carson (Gr 8); Third place, Brendan (Gr 7). They
will represent our school in the Diocesan Coastal Spelling Bee in the
winter.

Have a Holy Christmas and Blessed New Year!

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

December 11, 2015

CCS Families,

Advent is the time that the Church designates for the preparation of
Christmas. We reflect on the “true reason for the season” and get
ready for the birth of our Lord. Last night’s Lower School Special
Arts Christmas Program certainly gave everyone in the audience the
“message” about the miracle of the birth of Jesus. We are proud of
not only the talents of our Movement, Chorus and Drama students in
grades 1-4, but we are most grateful to these children for delivering
the “true message of Christmas” with their singing, dancing and
acting. We extend our congratulations and appreciation for their
teachers, Mrs. Metzler and Mrs. Santiago, who directed such fantastic
and spiritually moving performances.

This weekend and next week, our concert band (grades 5-8) gets their
opportunity to share their talents with the various audiences they
will have. On Saturday, they are the entertainment for the
Charleston Yacht Club Children’s Christmas Party. On Sunday, they
will perform at Second Sunday on King Street from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
at the corner of Beaufain and King streets, next to the Daughters of
St. Paul bookstore. They can showcase their skills for the
Charleston community. Then, next Thursday, December 17, both the
Beginner Band and Concert Band will perform their Christmas concerts
at CCS beginning at 6:30 p.m. We look forward to these performances
under the direction of our band teacher, Mrs. Draftz.

Next week will be exams for our 8th grade class, Monday through
Thursday. On Friday, we will have our schoolwide spelling bee before
we conclude the day with early dismissal at 11:15 a.m. for the
Christmas break.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Advent Prayer

Father in heaven, our hearts desire the warmth of your love and our
minds are searching for the light of your Word. Increase our longing
for Christ – http://www.catholic.org/clife/jesus our Savior
and give us the strength – http://www.catholic.org/prayers/prayer.php?p=2917
to grow in love, that the dawn of his coming may find us rejoicing
in his presence and welcoming the light of his truth. We ask this in
the name of Jesus – http://www.catholic.org/clife/jesus the Lord.
Amen.

Congratulations Saints!

Congratulations to our 7/8 year old and Senior Girls Basketball
Teams! Both teams brought home the First Place Trophies in the St.
Joseph Pre-Season Basketball Tournament. The Saints displayed great
sportsmanship and athletics! Gooooooo Saints!

Thanksgiving Message from Bishop Guglielmone

2015 Bishop’s Thanksgiving Message

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The secular media and advertisers are telling us that we are swiftly approaching the holiday season. Their goal is to entice and encourage us to begin our holiday shopping, not necessarily a critical goal for us as Christians. However, it is good for us to reflect thoughtfully on the fact that as these major holidays and religious seasons become closer and closer, our first response should be a profound sense of thanks to God for all the blessings that are showered upon us. We see a world, a nation and even some of our local communities and families in such disarray that we might be tempted to be somewhat negative in our analysis of the current situation. However, this kind of response misses the fact that there is so much good around us, even in the midst of a lot of difficulty. Our recent flood situation in South Carolina, while terribly devastating to many brought forth so much good will and generosity from people not only locally, but from many parts of the nation: we were inspired and we are grateful.
When the Holy Father visited our country a few weeks ago, he pointed out so many opportunities for us to proclaim God’s goodness and so many ways that we can find fulfillment and satisfaction in our faith. And of course, the Holy Father’s focus on the importance of family life and the fact that we can find security and joy in family life is certainly another reason to be thankful.
Next month, at the Holy Father’s direction, the Church will enter into a jubilee year of Mercy. This year will be a tremendous opportunity for all of us not only to experience God’s mercy for us, but also to be people who can extend mercy and forgiveness to others. Hopefully this constant call to mercy will lead to reconciliation between humanity and God, among individual people and hopefully even nations.
I ask that as we approach this Thanksgiving Day and the holy season of Advent we might focus on all the blessings that God has given us and continue as we approach Christmas to reflect on the ways we might better deal with a world that so desperately needs Christ to be born in hearts of all people.
A blessed Thanksgiving day to all.

Most Reverend Robert E. Guglielmone
Bishop of Charleston

May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given
to us.
