Greetings Lancers!

We believe in having an open line of communication and as part of our transition during this unprecedented time, I have launched a Webinar series to keep our parents and students updated with the latest MC information. We have also created a new model for Distance Learning that utilizes Zoom for interactive classes and a modified class schedule beginning on Monday, April 6.

Our leadership team has been working around the clock to respond to the needs of our students, our parents and our community and we invite you to check out our Distance Learning page on our website to see more about the programs we have implemented.

We are all in this together and I am planning to host a webinar for our alumni community as well over the next couple of weeks to find our more about everyone is doing under these difficult circumstances. We are one family, and we would like to continue to find ways to support and uplift each other.

We are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers,

John K. Thornburg

MC Operating Remotely Through May 4
Malden Catholic closed our physical campus on Friday, March 13 and immediately moved to a distance learning model the following Monday. Gratefully, our amazing teachers and students adjusted very quickly to the new remote teaching format and our third semester courses have continued on schedule. We have established a Distance Learning Protocol and have been keeping our students academically engaged with a full schedule of online classes and homework.

Governor Baker extended the order to keep children and families at home until May 4 and we will continue to meet the needs of our students and refine our remote learning model during this unusual period of time.
"My MC experience truly shaped my life in countless ways and I'm deeply grateful for my time there and for the community of friends I'm still close with. You guys are doing a great job!"
News Highlights
Article from The Boston Globe
Huge thanks to Christine Flaherty of Reading for the comments in The Boston Globe. The Boston Globe article, "Parents Struggle to Homeschool, Care for Kids Amid Coronavirus Crisis." MC didn't miss a beat and here is an excerpt from the article:

Many private K-12 schools, by contrast, seem to have more readily transitioned to remote learning. Christine Flaherty of Reading, whose 15-year-old son is a freshman at Malden Catholic High School, said her son “has a laptop and a great schedule of daily work." His technology class meets by Zoom. Another teacher messages every couple of hours to check in and see if anyone needs help. He has an English quiz Friday. “It’s not ideal. I have a child who needs some extra supports, but he’s getting them,” said Flaherty, a commercial real estate lender with Berkshire Bank who is working from home full time now. She and her son created an “old school” schedule of start and stop times on a piece of paper, which includes breaks for basketball in the backyard. “I was here working and he was working,” said Flaherty. "I don’t feel like he’s losing as much as he would if he was at home on his laptop playing Fortnite.”
Chess Wins League Championship
The Malden Catholic Chess Team capped off an impressive 10 - 0 season and went onto winning it's third straight North Shore Interscholastic Chess League championship. Over the season, the team won 100 individual games.

Campus Ministry
Campus Ministry Daily Prayer
As a further way of recognizing our faith and finding strength in being together, our Campus Ministry Office has launched a morning prayer for everyone in our community to enjoy and share. The prayers can be found on the MC YouTube channel.

Catholic Mass at St. Raphael Church

Deacon Mark Rumley has graciously provided us with a link to view a Mass he recorded for this weekend with Fr. Paul Coughlin, pastor, Saint Raphael Catholic Church. Deacon Mark informed us that the recording includes a “Spiritual Eucharistic prayer." We are extremely grateful to Deacon Mark for his generous support, time and willingness to assist the Malden Catholic community.
