For the health and safety of our faculty and students, Malden Catholic has transitioned to distance learning. In-person classes were suspended beginning Friday, March 13, 2020 and online instruction began on Monday, March 16, 2020. While we are living in challenging times, Malden Catholic has sought to make the transition to online learning as smooth as possible for students, parents, and faculty. Our entire staff has been working for the past couple weeks to help our community continue to function as an exceptional learning environment for all.

Updated School Calendar
Students who have completed, logged, and had approved at least 40 hours of Christian Service onto MobileServe their senior year, will have met their hour requirement for Senior Service. These students should go forward in writing their 5-page reflection paper, and pass them into their chosen moderator to be read.
Students who have not completed, logged or been approved for 40 hours of service, will instead practice Spiritual Works of Mercy to meet their service requirement and write a 5-page reflection paper.
All seniors will receive a document regarding the modified requirements and reflection paper details. Please reach out to Campus Ministry if you have any questions.
Campus Ministry is suspending in-person service requirements in compliance with recommendations for social distancing and the current stay-at-home advisory. Please see the document for all new requirements.

This information can be found through the link below.

In accordance with Governor Charles Baker’s announcement on April 24 that Massachusetts schools will be closed to in person learning for the remainder of the school year, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) regretfully has cancelled all spring sports and spring tournaments.
Today’s decision by the MIAA Board of Directors was difficult, disappointing, and one that was deferred for several weeks as Association staff, Association members from the Tournament Management Committee (TMC) and the Board worked aggressively to construct optional structures to save the opportunity for our MIAA 80,000 student-athletes to enjoy a spring season.
Despite this disheartening but unavoidable action, it is paramount to applaud our constituents, principals, athletic directors, coaches and student-athletes for their positive power of example and cooperation during this unprecedented crisis. The “life lessons” inherent in the games we play will be our resiliency to provide mental and physical strength to focus on the discipline and teamwork to make a difference in the challenging chapters in the Game of Life. #OneTeamOneMIAA
