Principal’s Message

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

We are most grateful to Bishop Guglielmone for celebrating Mass and
visiting our school this past Monday. We appreciate his leadership
for the Catholic schools in our Diocese and his support of our

We look forward to next week as we will celebrate All Saints Day with
Mass at 9:00AM and a reception for Alumni afterwards. We expect to
have alumni from all of the former Peninsula Catholic Schools (St.
Joseph, St. Patrick, Immaculate Conception, Sacred Heart, and
Cathedral) as well as some alumni from Charleston Catholic. All are
welcome to join us on Tuesday, November 1.

Students should wear Mass Day uniform on Tuesday, November 1. We
will follow a Wednesday Schedule.

Yours in Christ,

Spiritual Reflection

O God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception until
death. Help us to cherish our children and to reverence the awesome
privilege of our share in creation. May all people live and die in
dignity and love. Bless all those who defend the rights of the
unborn, the handicapped and the aged. Enlighten and be merciful
toward those who fail to love, and give them peace. Let freedom be
tempered by responsibility, integrity and morality.

Bishop Guglielmone Visits CCS!

Bishop Guglielmone was the celebrant at Mass on Monday. After Mass
the Bishop stopped by all the classrooms and talked to the students.
Thank you for all you do Bishop Guglielmone!
