On Wednesday, April 3, 2019, the Most Rev. Timothy C. Senior, V.G., M.B.A., M.S.W., M.A., M.DIV., Rector and Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia, visited Malvern Prep to celebrate Mass and meet with students. This visit was rescheduled from Catholic Schools Week in January due to inclement weather.
Prior to Mass, senior Billy Carlini, Student Council President, welcomed Bishop Senior to Malvern on behalf of our school community. During Mass, sixth-grader Alex March presented the Bishop with a Malvern jacket in gratitude for being with us for Mass. Bishop Senior gave the homily, speaking to our students about how in their relationship with God they receive knowledge, and with that knowledge, they are empowered to go out and live a life like Christ.
Following Mass, Bishop Senior met with Student Council members in the Student Union for refreshments and conversation, followed by a tour of campus with seniors Dan Dougherty and Garrett Hallinan.
"It was an honor to have Bishop Senior on campus to celebrate Mass with us. It was a great opportunity for our students to meet and engage with the Bishop in a variety of ways - through Mass, a small group setting, and on a tour around campus. Thank you, Bishop Senior for spending the morning at Malvern Prep!" shares Fr. Donald Reilly.
