Spiritual Reflection

May 13, 2014

Dear CCS Families,

For the month of May, we are focusing on Faithfulness as the last of
the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit. We are talking with the students
each week about examples of faithfulness. Being faithful involves
commitment and dedication. As students, they are expected to be
dedicated to giving their best effort and having a positive attitude
in their classes. They are being faithful when they listen to their
teachers and complete their assignments by the due dates. Please
reinforce this virtue of faithfulness at home.

Congratulations to Paul Rosenblum, one of our CCS Board members, who
was ordained a Deacon by Bishop Guglielmone this pastFriday. Deacon
Paul will serve the parish of Saint Mary of the Annunciation and the
Seafarers Ministry at the Port of Charleston. For his “day job”,
Deacon Paul is a Professor of Biology at The Citadel. Paul asks for
your prayers as he begins his new role in the Church.

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

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.
