Safe Environment Program:

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops established the
Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in 2002. The
Charter has the goal for creating a safe environment for children and
young people.In 2012 The Diocese of Charleston revised The Policy
Concerning Allegations of Sexual Misconduct or Abuse of a minor by
Church Personnel and adopted the updated Code of Conduct for Church
Personnel. This policy works in conjunction with the Charter.The
Charleston Catholic School operates under the Code of Conduct for
Church Personnel for all of its employees and volunteers.

Principal’s Message

April 17, 2015

Dear CCS Families and Friends,In the United States, April is Child
Abuse Prevention Month. All adults who care for children and who
regularly interact with children have a responsibility to create and
sustain environments to prevent child abuse. We create safe
environments by following policies and procedures established by
organizations that care for children. The Diocese of Charleston, for
example, has policies and procedures for all parishes and schools to
follow – employees and volunteers. We publish these each week on the
Principal’s Message so that all CCS families, friends and employees
can know what is expected of adults who care for children. This
month, please review these documents and take the necessary actions
when supervising students to provide safe environments for all.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Principal
The Charleston Catholic School

Spiritual Reflection

Prayer for Pope Francis

O God, shepherd and ruler of all the faithful,
look favorably on your servant Francis,
whom you have set at the head of your Church as her shepherd;

Grant, we pray, that by word and example
he may be of service to those over whom he presides
so that, together with the flock entrusted to his care,
he may come to everlasting life.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the
unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen

Congratulations

We are so proud of the students in the 2nd grade from St. Mary’s and
The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist who received their First
Reconciliation after school Mass this week!

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.
