In honor of the Class of 2020, our stadium lights are illuminated daily from 8:20 p.m. (that’s 2020 hours military time) to 8:40 p.m. until June 20, 2020. This symbolic lighting of the stadium for the duration of 20 minutes starting at 2020 hours demonstrates our pride for the Class of 2020. On Monday evenings, we will take photos of some of our senior class leaders including our Valedictorian and Salutatorian, Student Council, etc. Our Communications Department will contact these individuals directly.
Senior Gift – Delivered During the Week of May 25
Seniors will receive a special gift delivered to their homes over the week of May 25 from Gingerbread Construction Company.
Plans are underway for parents in our MC community to provide a special token of appreciation for our seniors. Look for more information to be shared soon.
Virtual Senior Christian-Service Prayer Service – Monday, June 15, at 4:00 p.m.
The annual Senior Christian Service Prayer Service will be held virtually on Monday, June 15, at 4:00 p.m. This is one way in which we can preserve our Prayer Service tradition and allow seniors to reflect prayerfully on the great service they rendered to the community over 4 years. Our survey responses supported a virtual event.
Senior Virtual Awards Ceremony – Wednesday, June 17, at 6:00 p.m.
The annual Senior Awards Ceremony will be held virtually on Wednesday, June 17, at 6:00 p.m. Based upon the survey data, our seniors indicated that a virtual ceremony was an appropriate format for this event. We will set up a stage and backdrop in the gym, and school administrators will host the event. (Awards, certificates, honor cords, moms’ flowers and other memorabilia from this event will be distributed at our MC Live Rolling Rally on Saturday, June 20.)
The MC Live Rolling Rally – Saturday, June 20, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. (Rain date is June 21, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.)
We will be transforming our back parking area into a senior celebration site for our first-ever Senior Rolling Rally! Seniors and family, traveling in one car, will follow a parade route around the School, making way to a stage where seniors will exit the vehicle for a photo opportunity with administrators and receive their MC Senior Graduation Package with awards, certificates, honor cords, flowers for their moms and other memorabilia. We encourage seniors to wear their “quarantine t-shirts” for the event. Additionally, MC administrators will host a short program. The event will be live-streamed for those gathered, as well as for other family members and individuals from the community to follow along and enjoy.
Malden Catholic Live Commencement/Conferral of Diplomas – Saturday, August 1, at 4:00 p.m.
In response to our survey, we plan to host live our Class of 2020 Commencement Exercises in Brother Gilbert Stadium, as permitted by state and local health organizations and government officials. Malden Catholic will follow all social distancing guidelines as established by the CDC to ensure the safety for all involved.
If for some reason, we are not able to hold the event as outlined above, our “Plan B” is to conduct a drive-up conferral of diplomas on Malden Catholic grounds or personally deliver each diploma to the homes of our seniors by our lead administrators, while maintaining social distancing.
Valedictorian and Salutatorian
Malden Catholic is proud to announce the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian for the Class of 2020.
Valedictorian – Michael Sekenski
Salutatorian – Ciro Carbone
Live Senior Baccalaureate Mass and Reception – Tuesday, November 25 (time to be determined)
During Thanksgiving week, when our seniors typically come home, visit the school to pick up yearbooks, and rekindle old friendships, we will host our Senior Baccalaureate Mass. The Mass and Reception are scheduled for Tuesday, November 25. The time will be announced as we move closer to the date.
We have much to celebrate in the achievements of our Class of 2020! Though we cannot do it in our usual fashion, we hope that the events we have planned will convey our love, thanks, and appreciation to each senior and his family for the partnership we have shared and for the relationship that will continue as our graduates join the ranks of Malden Catholic alumni.
