Following school-wide Mass, Malvern Prep students, faculty, and staff gathered together on Friday, December 8, to usher in the holiday season with the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. The community was greeted warmly by Santa and Mrs. Claus as they entered the Quad, who set a festive tone for the event. All were treated to cookies and hot chocolate distributed by members of the Bellesini Honor Society.
Rev. Bill Gabriel, O.S.A., blessed the tree, which was then lit by Ryan Cooper '30, the youngest Friar on Malvern's campus, with cheers from his fellow students.
Merry Christmas to the entire Malvern Prep Community!
