We believe that our communal worship is one of the primary modes of experiencing God's real and effective presence in our lives. At Malden Catholic, we engage our students, faculty and staff in regular worship in a variety of ways throughout the school year.

- Annual Memorial Mass (November)
- The Feast of St. Francis Xavier (Dec. 3)

- National Catholic Schools Week Liturgy (January)
- Feasts of St. Patrick/St. Joseph (March 19)
