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. – http://

Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

Thank you to everyone for participating in and supporting our Gala &
Auction this past Friday night! It truly was a wonderful celebration
of our 25 years as well as the almost 200 years of Catholic education
on the Peninsula. We are most grateful to the dedicated effort of
our Gala & Auction Planning Team and Volunteers. We appreciate the
support of our Sponsors, people who purchased tickets, donated items,
bid on items, and contributed to our two Fund-a-Need items. Although
the final financial numbers are not available at this time, it is
safe to say that we had a successful fundraiser and looks like we are
close to meeting our goals for both Fund-a-Need items. We will
publish more information as soon as we have it.

Congratulations to all of our Second Grade students who have received
their First Holy Communion in recent weeks. Also, congratulations to
many of our 8th Grade students who have made the sacrament of
Confirmation and those who will be confirmed this Sunday at
the11:15AM Mass at Sacred Heart and Monday night at 7:00PM at Christ
Our King.

Please join us this coming Thursday for our final PTO meeting of the
year at 6PM followed by performances by our Chorus and Movement

Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday to all of our CCS Mothers! We hope
you have a fantastic day and celebrate with your family.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

Proclamation of Joy

Jesus teaches us that the Good News, which He brings, is not reserved
to one part of humanity, it is to be communicated to everyone. It is
a proclamation of joy destined for those who are waiting for it, but
also for those who perhaps are no longer waiting for anything and
haven’t even the strength to seek and to ask.

— Angelus, January 26, 2014

CCS Principals!

It was wonderful to have all four of CCS Principals in one place to
celebrate 25 years of The Charleston Catholic School. We would like
to take this opportunity to thank all four Principals for their hard
work and dedication to make The Charleston Catholic School what it is
today. We appreciate your vision!

compassion for others, and nurturing a strong Catholic faith.
