93rd Edition: November 16, 2018

Pilgrims on the Way of Truth


Ah...Thanksgiving! Whether you're planning a quiet dinner with immediate family, or travelling to join extended family in a huge celebration - we know how dear those memories are for us all. And then that moment comes: the dinner is on the table, everyone has a plate in front of them...and we look around and soak it all in. We pass dishes filled with favorite family recipes. We share childhood stories (preferably the embarrassing ones!) We feel blessed to serve the future of our family with all the memories of our past.

It is in this same spirit that we come to celebrate our first-annual Hurricane Day on November 20th. Our goal is to have our own Hurricane Thanksgiving celebration, creating a shared day where every single Marian Central Hurricane - past, present, and future - shows how much this school matters! We have 591 talented, thoughtful, and hopeful students at Marian Central. They are the heart of why we exist - and why we are determined to be the absolute best school possible.

We hope that you help us make this Hurricane Day special! Encourage your students to deck-out in their best spirit wear for our special Spirit Dress Down Day on Tuesday. Help ensure that Marian Central can always provide the best resources and opportunities for our students by making a donation here. Share what Marian means to you on social media, using the #HurricaneDay hashtag!

Just as we plan to gather later this week to celebrate and give thanks for our families - let's come together on Tuesday to celebrate our beloved Marian Central family. Please consider joining us, too, on Wednesday morning (8:40 am) for our All-School Mass celebration! We are truly grateful for every student - and for the dedication and support of all our parents, faculty, and staff. Thank you for all that you do to make our school such a special place!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Hurricane Day - Tuesday, November 20!

Hurricane Day is a day to celebrate Marian Central Catholic High School! It's a day to share Hurricane pride by wearing red and columbia blue, posting Marian's impact on social media with #HurricaneDay, and giving back with a gift to reach our goal of 591 donors - one donor for every student currently attending Marian Central! This represents the number of students’ lives currently being formed at Marian Central. Together, we can ensure that the tradition of a Marian Central Catholic education remains strong.

Learn more about Hurricane Day here:

We are challenging the students to post on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram what they like most about Marian Central to be entered into a drawing for spirit wear. Students will be permitted to dress down that day in their most spirited red and columbia blue to show their Hurricane pride. Please encourage your child to get involved in this special day!
