Opening Week at Molloy

This week, Molloy welcomed students, faculty, and staff back to Manton Street for the start of the 2021-22 school year! Each class enjoyed an orientation day during which they received homeroom and locker assignments, picked up workbooks and yearbooks, and took yearbook photos. The Class of 2025 visited Molloy the week prior to pick up their iPads.

Molloy is set to begin the year with full in-person instruction as well as in-person extracurricular activities. The CHSAA has also provided guidance for a return to fall sports. The week of September 13, 2021 will be the first full in-person week with all grades in attendance since March 2-6, 2020. Molloy continues to follow the recommendations of the CDC, NY State Department of Health, NYC Department of Health, and the Diocese of Brooklyn regarding indoor mask-wearing, enhanced cleaning and disinfection, and best practices for air filtration. Molloy remains ready to implement its previously successful hybrid model if deemed necessary.

Thank you to our students, faculty, staff, parents, and everyone who made our orientation week a success! We look forward to welcoming everyone back next week for our first full week of classes.

Pictured above: The Class of 2025 get used to their new surroundings on their first orientation day. Faculty and staff distribute workbooks and help the freshmen open those tricky lockers.

 


 

Remembering September 11, 2001

Please join Molloy in prayer for all who have been affected by the tragedy on September 11, 2001. We hold in our hearts our fellow Stanners, family members, friends, and all innocent lives lost. We pray for the families and friends who continue to mourn loved ones. We also pray for those who are battling 9/11 related illnesses some twenty years later.

We remain eternally grateful for the bravery and sacrifices of countless heroes who acted in the face of great danger on that day, as well as during the weeks, months, and years of recovery efforts.

As a special intention, we pray for the repose of the soul of Steven F. Devaney ’89, retired FDNY, who passed away on September 5, 2021 after a courageous and prolonged battle with a 9/11 related illness. Steven spent an extended period working the recovery efforts at the World Trade Center. Thank you, Steven, and may you rest in God’s care.

Over the summer, Computer Science 110 (Programming with Python) students Sebastian Sanabria ’23 and Tyler Tabarovsky ‘23 placed in the top 70 winners of the nationwide “GOAT: Decoding a Successful App” challenge created by Amazon and GOAT. Hundreds of feature prototypes went through multiple rounds of judging by Amazon employees, GOAT employees, and the GOAT CEOs themselves, and the judges selected Tyler’s and Sebastian’s prototypes as standouts based on innovation, creativity, and design.

“We had so many incredible submissions, and it’s no small feat that your students won this challenge,” said the GOAT: Decoding a Successful App team.

During the five-day long GOAT: Decoding a Successful App Challenge, students learned about the GOAT company and how different members of their team have developed the technology solutions that have helped them grow to be worth over a billion dollars. They also heard from Eddy Lu, GOAT’s CEO and co-founder, as he described the importance of problem solving in successful entrepreneurship and app design….Click the button below to read the full story.

Pat Finegan ’02 and Matt Catera ’10 recently volunteered with the Stiller Foundation’s Tunnel to Tower Never Forget Walk. Pat and Matt took a bus along with other firefighters from Queens to Hershey, Pennsylvania for a portion of the event. Upon arriving on August 27th, Pat and Matt helped setup tables, chairs, tents, cooking stations, stages and the 9/11 mobile museum for a ceremony which took place on August 28th. On the day of the ceremony, Pat and Matt cooked and served food for all in attendance and later helped clean up. Pat and Matt are both members of Engine 58 a.k.a. “The Fire Factory” in Harlem. The late Lt. Robert B. Nagel ’63, FDNY, also a member of Engine 58, was among those tragically lost on 9/11.

 


 

Kathy Gremse, widow of the late Lt. John “Jack” Gremse ’68, was selected to read the names of souls lost on 9/11 during a ceremony at the World Trade Center Memorial Museum on September 12th. The names of those lost to a 9/11 illnesses will also be read, which is a special addition felt by the Gremse family, having lost Lt. Gremse to such illness in 2014. Kathy is expected to read her husband’s name and share some words about him. Kathy, our thoughts are with you, Lt. Gremse, and your family.

Dr. Bill Endy ’68 is continuing his own remembrance of Lt. Gremse. Dr. Endy, an experienced hiker at 71 years of age, plans to hike the Grand Canyon rim to rim in a little over one week from now. Dr. Endy will broadcast segments of the hike live on his Youtube channel, and he is trying to reach 1,000 subscribers on his channel to be able to monetize his videos and raise money for the Lt. John “Jack” Gremse Graduation Assistance Fund. This fund, established in memory of his dear friend, helps students whose parents face an unexpected and overwhelming financial burden leading to their inability to pay for the remaining tuition in their child’s senior year. Please visit Dr. Endy’s channel, subscribe, and follow his training journey as he gets set to hike the Grand Canyon rim to rim. | Visit Dr. Endy’s Youtube Channel

Sisters Melissa Foley ’13 and Jennifer Foley ’13 recently shared a Stanner connection that happened by chance! In August, Melissa and Jennifer attended a family gathering, and while there they struck up a conversation with two other guests who turned out to be Stanners from the Class of 1983: John Nolan ’83 and Antonio Marciano ’83. “We talked with John and Antonio for a good hour about all things Molloy,” said Melissa. “They both graduated in 1983, but they still knew a bunch of the Marist Brothers and teachers we had. It was a breath of fresh air to be surrounded with Stanner pride!”

 

 

 


 

In July, Kevin Lange ’76 met up with classmate Robert Serio ’76 up in New Hampshire. Rob and Kevin were staying in nearby towns and arranged to meet up for a day in the great outdoors. Kevin and Rob managed to make it most of the way up the 4,003 foot peak of Mount Tecumseh, which is the shortest of New Hampshire’s forty-eight 4,000 ft peaks. “We would have gone the whole way up, but we had dinner reservations,” laughed Kevin. “Not bad for a couple of old guys. God bless all Stanners!”

 


Best wishes to Jillian Hubert ’17, who plans to run the New York City Marathon this November to support research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
