Principal’s Message

September 4, 2015

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

This Saturday will be the funeral Mass for Mr. John Orr, Sr. at 11:00
a.m. in St. Patrick Catholic Church. Mr. Orr had a special fondness
for The Charleston Catholic School. This relationship began when his
wife, Mrs. Yvonne Tolley Orr, was Principal of Charleston Catholic
from 2000 to 2006.

Mr. Orr would volunteer in the lunch room on Fridays, attend CCS
events throughout the school year, and spread the word about CCS
among his business contacts through his work at The Charleston Place
Hotel. When I became Principal at CCS, Mr. Orr told me that although
his wife was retiring he was not, and he continued to volunteer on
Friday to serve lunch for another five years.

I had the pleasure to get acquainted with Mr. Orr during that time
and even kept our friendship going until his recent passing. I
enjoyed his humor, witnessed his love for CCS students when he was on
campus, and respected him for his faithfulness to the Catholic
Church. Mr. Orr will be missed by our Charleston Catholic School
Community. Well done, good and faithful servant!

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

A Prayer for Fidelity to WorkGlorious St. Joseph, model of all who
are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work
conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural
inclinations; to work with gratitude and joy, considering it an honor
to employ and develop, by means of labor, the gifts received from
God, disregarding difficulties and weariness; to work, above all,
with purity of intention and with detachment from self, having always
before my eyes death, and the account which I must render of time
lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in
success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all for Mary,
all after your example, patriarch Joseph. This will be my watchword
in life and in death. Amen.

Open House Was A Huge Success!

Mission Statement

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.
