MCCHS Friday Focus
267th Issue - September 15, 2023
From the Desk of Mike Shukis
Homecoming will forever symbolize at Marian Central a joyful reunion of past and present students, teachers, and alumni, coming together in a spirit of faith, camaraderie, and shared values. It is a time when our school’s rich history and traditions are celebrated, fostering a sense of continuity, and belonging that is rooted in the teachings of the Catholic faith. Through Masses, the sacraments, prayer, and other religious activities, homecoming serves as a reminder of the school’s enduring bonds formed within these hallowed halls and a chance to pass on the legacy of faith and excellence to the next generation, making homecoming a truly meaningful and spiritually enriching experience for the entire Marian Central community.
Let’s enjoy this year’s homecoming as a community, as a family of faith. Go Canes!
