Epiphany of the Lord
Gospel of Matthew 2: 1-12
The Magi of the East arrived in Bethlehem to pay homage to the newborn king. They brought our Lord gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. They followed the bright light from the star to guide them to Bethlehem, and their journey probably took more than a year.
Why would wealthy, wise “kings” go on a long journey in search of another “king”? Why would they bring him gifts? Maybe, they were looking for something else in their lives, even though they supposedly “had it all” in terms of material wealth. Let us be like the Magi as we connect with Jesus in our prayers, in the Eucharist and through other people.
Report Cards for second quarter are coming home today in the Monday family envelope. Each student’s report will be in a sealed envelope per family.

The Charleston Catholic School educates a socially diverse student body in a nurturing family environment within the sacred tradition and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Teachers challenge the students to discover their own unique gifts through creative inquiry and critical thinking in the core academic subjects and the arts. Our small, loving environment enables students to learn self discipline through responsible decision-making and to develop a sense of compassion for others.
