LAPLACE — St. Charles Catholic High School began the 2021-2022 year in its traditional manner with student retreats for all grade levels. The Retreat Team, senior volunteer leaders who prepared all summer for this day, led the eighth and ninth graders through games, reflections, skits, talks and prayer, focusing on this year’s theme: Stronger Together!

Teachers led the 10th and 11th grade retreats off-site, hearing from guest speakers as well as SCC’s new campus minister, Ryan Foulon.

The seniors joined their little sisters and brothers at eighth and ninth grade retreat after being treated to a special vocation reflection with alumnus and Comet parent, Dr. Andy St. Martin.

All of the Comets attended Mass at the same hour, joining their prayer together and celebrating the gift of the Blessed Sacrament to end the retreats. St. Charles Catholic is looking forward to many more exciting days ahead with the Comets.

SCC seniors also enjoyed their Senior Sunrise on Monday morning – a bright new day for the Class of 2022!

This SCC tradition is all about remembering the little moments. As the seniors came to campus on August 16, they were treated to PJ’s coffee and given time to commemorate this new beginning.

At the end of the year, the students will close out the year with a senior sunset.
