Palm Sunday and Holy Week

Principal’s Message

Spiritual Reflection

Palm Sunday and Holy Week

Dear CCS Families,

Holy Week is the epitome of the Catholic Church Liturgical Year. The week begins with Palm Sunday as the people welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem as a “king” by waving palm branches. The week ends with the people turning against Jesus, demanding that He be put to death, and then Jesus rises to new life on Easter Sunday.

Jesus is celebrated, mourned, denied, betrayed, mocked, and ridiculed — all in one week. As we participate in the Holy Week Liturgies, let us imagine that we are some of His disciples who saw their Master Teacher treated in such contrasting ways. What thoughts and feelings do we have?

On behalf of the CCS Faculty, I wish you and your family a Happy Easter! May you enjoy the Easter break, and we will resume classes on Monday, April 28th.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

The CCS Fishing Club!

The CCS Fishing Club held their first meeting this past Saturday. 25 students are involved in the club. Thank you Rowland for coming up with a great idea! Thank you also to Mrs. O’Brien, faculty adviser, & Mr. & Mrs. Von See club advisers.

Raising the Flag!

The rain held off long enough for the band to play The Star Spangled Banner and our Saint Boy Scouts to raise the flag on our new flag pole. Mr. Fields took the first shot on the new regulation sized basketball court. Faculty, students and visitors all enjoyed the excitement of the celebration and the wonderful musical selections! Go Saints!
