CCS Families,

This week is National Vocations Awareness Week. Are you aware that
we have vocations clubs here at CCS for students in Grades 5-8? The
Father Kolbe Vocations Club is for boys, and the Saint Cecilia
Vocations Club is for girls. Our Vocations Club Advisors are Sr.
Richarde, Mrs. Santiago and Mrs. Panek. See the prayer for vocations
listed below.

Next week begins our Food Drive sponsored by the Student Council.
Each grade has certain items to bring in. Our collection will be
from Nov. 9 to Nov. 18. We will donate the food items to St. Vincent
de Paul and the OLM Outreach Center on John’s Island. Our school’s
goal is 500 items. Thank you for your support in helping others in

Do you know who serves on our school advisory board? Check out the
school’s website to see the list of board members — look for the
About CCS tab and click on Charleston Catholic School Advisory Board.
We are most grateful to the board members for their volunteer
service on behalf of the families.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

Prayer for Vocations

Loving God, your Son, Jesus, has shown us that an open heart finds
the way. Help me to find my way in this world. Keep my heart open
to following Jesus and His way of serving others in need. Give me
the courage to accept the guidance you offer me through my family,
friends and parish community.

Alumni Mass & Reception!

Thank you to everyone who attended and helped with the Alumni Mass
and Reception! We had a wonderful turn out. The 8th grade class gave
a wonderful Saint presentation. A fabulous time was had by all.

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.
