Over 100 Alumni Return for Thanksgiving Liturgy

Today, November 23rd, Molloy celebrated its annual Thanksgiving Liturgy in the Jack Curran Gym! The Liturgy served as an opportunity for our students, faculty, staff, and over 100 alumni to come together, pause and reflect on what we are all thankful for.

Our celebrant, Fr. Sean Suckiel of the Holy Family parish, emphasized that everyone in attendance was made in the image and likeness of God, and that even when we may feel down or when things get tough, we are loved. The theme of the day was gratitude, being thankful for the opportunity to celebrate our Liturgy with our Stanner family in one room instead of having to distance ourselves from each other.

After the Liturgy, visiting alumni attended a reception where they enjoyed cookies and hot cocoa, got to catch up with each other, and say hello to some of their favorite faculty members!

Thank you to everyone who made this day one of community, thankfulness, love, and giving! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!


Support Kaitlyn Mendoza Fund This Giving Tuesday

Kaitlyn Mendoza ’22

November 29, 2022 is Giving Tuesday, a worldwide celebration of giving to organizations and causes we are passionate about. This Giving Tuesday, our Stanner family will have an opportunity to support a cause near and dear to the hearts of many here at Molloy.

Last year, we mourned the passing of our beloved student, classmate, and friend, Kaitlyn Mendoza ’22. Kaitlyn was a gifted young woman who excelled in her academics and on the tennis court. She also developed a passion for art, and she was a loyal and caring friend. Kaitlyn is dearly missed by all of us at Molloy.

Thanks to the generosity of CAPTRUST Community Foundation and an anonymous alumnus, a special gift challenge supporting The Kaitlyn Mendoza Fund will take place this Giving Tuesday. A special video presentation will premiere on social media and at www.molloyhs.org on November 29th at 11:00 AM ET. We invite you to watch the video to learn more about The Kaitlyn Mendoza Fund and this opportunity to support a wonderful cause in her memory.

If you would like to make a gift early, please click the button below to visit our online donation form. If you have any questions, please contact the Stanner Alumni Center (contact button below).

Stanners Support November Donation Drive

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Stanners, faculty, and staff participated in a donation drive run by Campus Ministry, followed by a Thanksgiving prayer service. This year’s drive benefited two tremendous organizations, The Friar Suppliers and The Harding Ford Vision Food Pantry.

The Friar Suppliers support the poor and hungry in Haiti. They build homes for those in need and operate an orphanage. They have helped thousands of Haitians to be fed, housed, and cared for. The Harding Ford Vision Pantry is located in Jamaica, Queens, NY. They serve hundreds of people every week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Many of our students have provided community service at this pantry over the past few weeks, including a group of students who will represent Molloy at the pantry this Saturday, November 19th.

In total, our community collected and donated about 30 full boxes of food to the pantry, and five barrels of food for transport to Haiti! Bishop Brown, the founder of the pantry, spoke to our students about the urgency for food in his community, and was extremely grateful for Molloy’s donations. Mr. Charles Moran, a representative of The Friar Suppliers, followed up with our Campus Ministers and shared, “I am continually inspired by our Marist Molloy community and how our students embrace their roles as servant leaders and agents of justice.”

Thank you to all who participated in our Thanksgiving Donation Drive!


Dress Down Fundraiser Helps Marists in Venezeula

The Marist Brothers recently provided an update in their weekly newsletter, following up on a Dress Down Fundraiser that Molloy students participated in earlier this fall. The fundraiser, organized by Molloy’s Spanish Club during Hispanic Heritage Month, supported Marist educators in Venezuela who are in urgent need of supplies. Ms. Lori Wilson, Director of Campus Ministry & Marist Mission, commented, “Molloy’s donations have made a difference for our Venezuela Marist family. Thank you for being people for others and caring about our ‘extended family’ who are struggling.”


Social Studies Class Welcomes Veterans

On November 15th, three post 9/11 combat veterans served as virtual guest speakers in Mr. Beaudet’s US History Class. Jason Smith, Sarah Rudder, and Melissa Lueck shared their background and experience in both the military and recovering from major physical and mental post-war injuries. Sarah Rudder was injured at the Pentagon the morning of September 11th and ultimately had her leg amputated. She has since gone on to win 18 medals at the Invictus Games. Jason suffered significant damage to his hand and both legs during an incident while deployed in Afghanistan. Melissa served in Iraq as a heavy equipment transporter and operator.

Some of the topics covered included enlisting at the age of 17, a woman’s perspective of serving in the military and post-war experiences, the connection between physical activity and mental health, having a positive body image, the role of God in their lives, being kind, and the value of service. Mr. Beaudet’s class was able to engage with these speakers through the Catch-A-Lift Fund, which provides physical and mental health services to post 9/11 combat veterans.
