CCS Families,

I would like to offer my congratulations to the 8th Grade Girls
Volleyball team. The Lady Saints have had a phenomenal season. They
ended their regular season in the South C1 Division with a 9 – 1
record, to earn #1 seed in the City Tournament. Wednesday night they
will play in the semi-finals at James Island Recreation Center at
6:30PM. If you can attend it would be great! The Championship game
will be Thursday evening at Park West. We will be sure to keep
everyone updated on their progress via Facebook and email. Go Saints!

In addition to their participation in the city league, the 8th Grade
Volleyball team placed 4th in State Diocesan Tournament two weeks
ago. We are proud of our Lady Saints!

This week the priests are on retreat. Instead of Mass on Wednesday
we will gather in the Auditorium and pray the Rosary. Student
Council will lead the prayer service. Students will wear Mass Day

Friday will be Parent – Teacher Conferences, from 7:45AM – 1:15PM.
No school for students.

Sacred Heart Church. Students will wear Mass Day uniforms. There
will be a reception for alumni after Mass. We will follow Wednesday
Class schedule.

Spiritual Reflection

The MemorareRemember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that any one who fled to
thy protection, implored thy help or sought they intercession, was
left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin
of virgins my
Mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand,
sinful and sorrowful; O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my
petitions, but in they mercy hear and answer me, Amen.

5th Grade at Mother Emanuel AME!

In addition to the 5th Grade touring Ft. Sumter, the class also
prayed at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

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.
