Spiritual Reflection

A Prayer to Our Blessed Mother Take my hand,

O Blessed Mother Hold me firmly lest I fall I grow nervous

while walking and Humbly on thee call.

Guide me over every crossing,

Watch me when I'm on the stairs

Let me know you're beside me listen to my fervent prayers.

Bring me to my destination

Safely along the way Bless my every undertaking

And duties for the day.

When evening creeps upon me I'll never fear to be alone Once again,

O Blessed Mother Take my hand and lead me home.

Fun with the Holy Father

Students enjoyed visiting with "Pope Francis" on Monday.

We would like to thank Sister Frances for hosting the St. Paul Books
& Media Book Fair.  We hope everyone had a chance to stop by.

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.
