Principal’s Message

May 15, 2015

Dear CCS Families,

This Sunday, May 17, the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Charleston
will celebrate the Feast Day of the Ascension. Jesus promised His
disciples that He would send an Advocate to be with them after He
went to heaven. Next Sunday, May 24, the Church will celebrate the
Feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples in
the upper room.

Also, this Sunday, ten of our 8th grade students will receive the
Sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Guglielmone at the 11:15
a.m.Mass at Sacred Heart Church. Then, on Tuesday evening at Christ
Our King Church, another one of our 8th graders will be confirmed.
Let’s pray for these students.

Finally, on Tuesday, May 19, from 5-7 pm, we will have our Athletic
Banquet for the upper school basketball teams, girl volleyball teams
and all 4 of our tennis teams (Red, White, Black and Blue Saints).
On behalf of all of our tennis coaches, I want to say how proud we
are of the tennis players. We had 35 students in grades 3-8
participate in tennis this spring, and they did a great job in
representing our school in all of their matches with excellent
attitude, effort and sportsmanship. I am particularly proud of the
Red Saints team (7th & 8th graders) who won the regular season in
their division with a perfect 7-0 record. Best wishes to all our
Saints tennis teams in their tournament matches next week.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

Monsignor Brovey is on his pilgrimage to Fatima and Lourdes.
Monsignor took with him prayer cards that the CCS students and
faculty wrote last week and placed them at the base of Our Lady of
Fatima statue.

This marks the spot where Mary appeared 98 years ago to the 3
shepherd children. There were over 250,000 present for the praying of
the rosary and Mass at the Tuesday night for the vigil of Feast of
Our Lady of Fatima. On Wednesday morning there were over 200,000
people, 300 priests and 40 Cardinals/Bishops in attendance of the
98th anniversary of the first apparition. Monsignor wanted to let
everyone know he is praying for everyone at the school and their
families.
We pray for a safe trip for Monsignor Brovey and thank him for
remembering us in his prayers at Fatima.

At the Bandstand

The movement and chorus did an outstanding job as they took us back
to the 50’s. They danced and sang to some wonderful tunes! Everyone
enjoyed this fun filled evening! Thank you Mrs. Metzler and Mrs.
Santiago for your wonderful direction! The students did an
outstanding job!

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.
