MASS ATTIRE – FRIDAY DECEMBER 3, 2021
Tomorrow is our school wide Mass. Students are required to be in full Mass attire. We realize that there are some back orders with Collegiate House so we will accept plain navy blue ties for the boys and plain navy blue V-neck sweaters for the girls.
Boys must wear dress shoes or Sperrys (no boots or sneakers), plain white dress shirts, khaki pants with belt and Malden Catholic monogramed ties.
Girls must wear dress shoes or flats (no heels, boots or sneakers), plain white blouses/dress shirts, skirts or khaki pants, and Malden Catholic V- neck pullover sweater.
All students must arrive in full Mass attire and remain as such for the entire school day.
Thanks to members of the Diversity Club and several theology classes and some helpful friends who designed and posted the Positivity Post-it Notes. We hope you enjoy them for the color and cheer they bring and keep them on your lockers.
