Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

This past Tuesday, for All Saints Day, we welcomed 30 people for our
Alumni reception following Mass. It was great to have
representatives from each of the downtown Catholic schools – St.
Joseph, St. Patrick, Sacred Heart, Cathedral, Immaculate Conception
and Charleston Catholic. The alumni enjoyed visiting with each other
and seeing the campus (the “old” classrooms that brought back fond
memories of their Catholic school experience and the “new” classrooms
and renovations that have taken place in recent years). They also
enjoyed the entertainment provided by the Movement class (1st & 2nd
graders) and Chorus class (3rd grade). We are grateful for the
support of our alumni. Go Saints!

Next Friday, our country will celebrate Veterans Day (Nov. 11). We
are grateful for the service of all veterans. On Sunday, Nov. 13,
Sacred Heart Church will honor veterans following the 11:15AM Mass
with a breakfast and entertainment by our CCS Concert Band in the
school’s auditorium. All are welcome to attend as we pay tribute to
all veterans.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay
Principal

Spiritual Reflection

Prayer for Vocations

O God, Father of all Mercies,

Provider of a bountiful Harvest,

send Your Graces upon those
You have called to gather the fruits of Your labor;
preserve and strengthen them in their lifelong service of you.

Open the hearts of Your children
that they may discern Your Holy Will;
inspire in them a love and desire to surrender themselves
to serving others in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ.
Teach all Your faithful to follow their respective paths in life
guided by Your Divine Word and Truth.

Through the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary,
all the Angels, and Saints, humbly hear our prayers
and grant Your Church’s needs, through Christ, our Lord.

Amen.

CCS Alumni Mass & Reunion!

Thank you to all the alumni who came to the Alumni Mass and Reunion
