Malden Catholic High School is proud to announce that seven students were chosen to participate in the annual Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools Leadership Retreat. Under the direction of Malden Catholic Campus Ministry Leader, Mary Driscoll, the leadership program was held at the Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford, Connecticut. The theme of “falling in love with the service of God” was explained by the students as an incredible experience.
The seven Malden Catholic participants were Tim DeMaria and Priamo Compras, both from Malden, John Roynane and Ted Kearnan of Melrose, Patrick Allen of Wilmington, Mario Del Sonno of Peabody and Joe Penta of Tewksbury. Participants from twelve other Xaverian Brothers sponsored schools from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Maryland and Kentucky joined the Malden Catholic students.
At the retreat, students focused on the values of humility, trust, zeal, compassion, and simplicity. Students were asked to establish a plan to bring these values back to their school to enrich the community.
