A Message From The Principal

Dear CKS Families,


How fortunate we are to live in a state where we can enjoy beautiful foliage week after week! The month will end with the students’ colorful, beautiful, scary, and clever costumes. Remember that our youngest students might not enjoy scary, gruesome costumes. We also ask that costumes be “appropriate” for the school environment. The faculty and staff have planned their costumes together, but we might also see a few witches flying around. Let’s have a great day.


November 2nd is All Saints’ Day, a holy day of obligation. Students will attend the

morning Mass. If your child is named after a saint, it might be fun to learn

a bit about the saint. Hard to believe, but there is actually a saint, Odile! Imagine

that!


Mrs. Odile Steel

CKS MIDDLE SCHOOL SOCCER

The girls finished their soccer season last week with a strong and muddy last game against Hinesburg. Grace Marcella was the star scorer for the team over the season. The girls had a strong defense, and they improved with every game. Overall they had fun representing CKS together while they strengthened friendships and practiced leadership. A big thanks go out to Coach John VanDijk for his willingness to coach and all those who pitched in to help, especially the Rice Varsity Soccer girls, Becky Penney and Finley Strong. Thanks to Alison Redlich for providing all the snacks and the photos. Nice work, girls!

CHURCH NEWS

Click here for the recent bulletin.

Back from the Dead: The dead would like to speak with you!

Back from the Dead: Take a walk at night through the Resurrection Park Cemetery. As a guide leads you through the dark by candlelight, saints and martyrs come to life to tell you about “Last Things”: death, judgment, heaven, and hell. Hear from the dead who describe the tortures they endured for the sake of Christ. St. Teresa of Avila will share her visions of hell with you. Through these encounters with saints and martyrs, you’ll discover what it means to be truly alive, both now and in the life to come.

Join us on Saturday, October 29 at 6:45 p.m. at St. John Vianney Parish Center in South Burlington.
