Malvern Prep Celebrates Third Annual Caritas Carnival

Malvern Prep Celebrates Third Annual Caritas Carnival

On Wednesday, April 17, Malvern Prep’s campus was filled with fun and games at the third annual Caritas Carnival. In partnership with Sow Good Now, the School hosted over 300 children from local area elementary schools who otherwise would not be able to enjoy a field trip with their classmates.

The day was made possible by Kelly Catania P’21’23, Director of Christian Service, and Mary Nassib P’08’11’14, Founder of Sow Good Now. Under their leadership, Upper School students, faculty, and staff volunteered throughout the campus to make the day a success!

The Carnival kicked off with a message from Carl Nassib ’11 who remarked on how Malvern Prep’s mission helped shape his character and dedication to service. He challenged students to get involved in a project they believe in, invite a friend, and ignite their joy.

The day's festivities included carnival games, crafts, sports, and even a petting zoo! Guests were treated to lunch in Stewart Hall and snacked on carnival treats of cotton candy, popcorn, and snow cones throughout the day. The Chester County Food Bank was on hand to send students home with bags full of fresh local produce.

"The Caritas Carnival serves as a powerful catalyst for our Friars, opening their minds and hearts to our school's mission in tangible ways. I'm delighted by the profound impact and the noticeable growth we've witnessed in recent years,” said Catania.
