The Chisholms’ are proud parents of three sons: Jamie, Robert, and Brendan. “Robert, a 1995 Malden Catholic graduate and Brendan, a 1999 graduate, benefitted greatly from the ethos of MC, both explicit and implied, that reinforced Christian values of compassion, respect, tolerance and service, as well as the responsibility to develop one’s own talents to the highest degree possible,” said Margaret Chisholm.

“We are very pleased to recognize Paul and Margaret Chisholm with the Malden Catholic Lifetime Achievement Award for their unwavering support that has meant so much to Malden Catholic and Catholic education in general,” said Thomas Doherty, Malden Catholic Headmaster.  We are thankful to have in the Chisholms two members of our MC family who so fiercely believe in the Mission of this great school.”
