Principal’s Message

March 27, 2015

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,

Fred McKay

Principal
The Charleston Catholic School

Spiritual Reflection

Hail Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Our life, our sweetness and our
hope.
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,
Jesus.
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.
Amen.

Saints Participate in Charleston Clean Cities Sweep

The CCS Saints divided into classes and helped pick up trash around
our neighborhood on Wednesday. Our neighbors were very appreciative
of the students taking pride in their community and school.

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.
