Dear CCS Families and Friends,
This Sunday is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. For
Catholics / Christians, this is the holiest time of the year, and
therefore it is very important to focus our personal time and effort
on our faith. Check with your parish about times for these unique
liturgical experiences that we celebrate once per year. On Holy
Tuesday, Bishop Guglielmone will celebrate the Chrism Mass at the
Cathedral at 11:00 a.m. Priests from all parishes in the Diocese
participate in this liturgy.
On behalf of all of the faculty and administration, I wish your
family a Happy Easter on April 5th and enjoy the Easter break during
the following week. Classes will resume on April 13th.
Yours in Christ,
The Charleston Catholic School

To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, To thee do we send
up our sighs, Mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, And
after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb,
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Pray for us, O Holy Mother
of God, That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

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.
