Distinguished Alum Paul Malchesky ’64 Supports the Catholic Education of Today’s Youth

Dr. Paul S. Malchesky is a proud member of the Bishop Carroll class of 1964. Looking back at his time as a student, Paul came to realize that Bishop Carroll truly shaped him into the man he is today. “Without much thought at the time, I can look back and see that Bishop Carroll prepared and provided me with a very valuable step,” he says.

The lifelong lessons that a Catholic education provides are demonstrated in Paul. The values and ethics instilled in him have proven themselves to be a significant reason for his success today. Academically, Paul appreciated and took full advantage of what was offered at Bishop Carroll. “I valued my academic efforts. I knew that whatever I wanted to do, I had to be prepared to the best of my abilities. I took the college prep courses and was fortunate to land a half-tuition scholarship to St. Francis. I did not want to waste this experience,” he states.

30 Hour Food Fast Benefits Heart and Hands Mission in Haiti

Bishop Carroll’s Campus Ministry held a 30 Hour Food Fast last week from 6 a.m. Wednesday morning (4/12) until noon Thursday (4/13). Thirty juniors and seniors fasted from all food during that time and stayed overnight at the school. Each student had to raise at least $60 to participate, and all money is going to the Heart and Hands Mission in Haiti. 

It was an opportunity to get a "taste" of what hunger is like. We also had prayer experiences, learned about the plight of the people in Haiti, and had fun too.  This event incorporated all the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  Students broke the fast with a shared meal at noon and reflected on the experience.

One Team; One Outstanding Season

If there’s one thing you can usually depend on in March, it’s that the Bishop Carroll girls’ basketball team is going to qualify for the state playoffs.

At least, that’s usually the case. But fans and observers could be forgiven if — back in November — that appeared to be a long shot. After all, the Huskies had just one starter returning from last year. So, perhaps this was going to be a rebuilding year?

Nope, that’s not the way the Huskies saw it. They started to jell during offseason workouts, and that work translated into another fantastic season at Bishop Carroll. Rebuilding season? Nope. The girls went 23-6, won their second straight District 6 championship, and advanced to the PIAA Class A semifinals.
