Marists of Champagnat Update (March 2021)

The Lay Council continues to meet bi-weekly, working on formation resources, the website, and keeping up with membership. Members of the first cohort of the formation process have completed the 2nd Webinar. “He Gave Us the Name of Mary” was presented by Central Catholic President, Chris Sullivan. Chris gave us much to think about in regard to our relationship with Mary. How are we inspired by her qualities? How can we live out her simplicity, humility and courage?

Cohort participants are particularly enjoying the small group conversations that take place. Getting to know folks from around the country and sharing the faith journey is a most important part of the process.

Looking ahead, the 3rd Webinar will be on the Five Pillars. Lay Marists Larry Tucker (Chicago), Madeline Picou (Louisiana), Eyda Alagret (Miami), Tony Cantu (Brownsville), and Joe Hallak (New Jersey) will each present on one of the pillars. Rounding out the slate of presenters will be Br. Patrick McNamara speaking on the global implications of being a Marist of Champagnat and Alice Miesnik speaking on Mission: Love in Action.

Interested in becoming more involved as a Lay Marist? Download this Interest Form and return the completed form to Maureen Hagan at mhagan8486@gmail.com.

Updates On Thanksgiving Liturgy & Stanner Games

Dear Stanners & Friends,

Each year, we love to see our alumni when they visit Molloy, especially in celebration of our annual Thanksgiving Liturgy. Unfortunately, due to ongoing restrictions related to COVID-19, most alumni visits have not been possible since Molloy reopened in September. Additionally, we are saddened to share that due to these restrictions as well as logistical challenges, we are not able to offer this year’s Thanksgiving Liturgy in either a physical or virtual setting for our alumni. We apologize for this disappointing news, but we thank you for your understanding and support. Please continue to read The Beehive for updates regarding our ongoing response to COVID-19 during the 2020-21 school year.

Looking ahead, Stanner Games directors Joe Dombrowski and AJ Power ’84 have announced that the 2021 Stanner Games have been canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. Coach Dombrowski and Coach Power thank you for your understanding and extend their best wishes to all past Stanner Games volunteers. They look forward to seeing you at the next Stanner Games, which is tentatively scheduled for January 15, 2022.

Once again, thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact us any time at alumni@molloyhs.org. We wish everyone a happy and safe Thanksgiving.

Sincerely,

The Stanner Alumni Center

The discussion focused on navigating the job market during the COVID-19 pandemic. Topics included how to prepare for and conduct a successful job interview on Zoom, personal branding, curating one’s Internet footprint, using social media to your advantage, best practices for interview follow-ups, and much more. Our panel was also gracious enough to provide a document containing many of the “Do’s and Don’ts” that were discussed during the event as a resource for all Stanners.

Amazon Engineers Virtually Visit Molloy Students

by Ms. Edit Boral

During the first and second week of November, Molloy students had a chance to virtually meet and chat during their computer science classes with the following four guest speakers from Amazon (pictured left to right in the gallery above):

  • Litmanovich Lenara, Recruiting Coordinator on the Amazon Consumer Team
  • Terence Truong, Solutions Architect Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Amit Lodh, Senior Leader and Solutions Architecture Manager on the AWS Team
  • Jaswanthi Meganathan, Engagement Manager, AWS

Each Amazon volunteer was thrilled to connect and share insights from their computer science journey with Amazon Future Engineer (AFE) students and Ms. Boral. They talked about what it’s like to actually study computer science in college and work in the tech industry, including at Amazon. Students also had a chance to ask questions and connect with the volunteers on LinkedIn. Molloy’s Computer Science program offers students the opportunity to obtain Amazon Certificates. These certifications carry weight when pursuing future job opportunities – particularly at Amazon.

Cole Anthony Drafted By Orlando Magic – 2020 NBA Draft

On Wednesday, November 18th, Cole Anthony was drafted 15th overall by the Orlando Magic in the 2020 NBA Draft. Many Stanners and friends would agree that 2016-2018 was one of the most exciting times in Molloy basketball history, as Cole Anthony, Moses Brown ’18, and Khalid Moore ’18 teamed up to form an elite trio that led Molloy to a City Championship game in 2017 and another exciting playoff run in 2018. During his time at Molloy, Cole tallied over 1,000 points, entered Molloy’s top 10 scorers all-time, and was consistently rated as an elite high school player in national rankings.

Although Cole ultimately left Molloy to attend Oak Hill Academy for his senior year, Cole will always have strong ties to Molloy as well as many friends in our community. We extend our sincerest congratulations to Cole and wish him all the best during his professional playing career. For more information about Cole, check out the following link to “Becoming Cole Anthony” produced by Bleacher Report. You can also watch a trailer for the series in the embedded Tweet below, which features other Molloy basketball greats.


 

Lay Marist Council Update

Members of the Lay Marist Council USA, including President Richard Karsten ’81, have met with most of the Brothers’ communities to share information about what has been happening with the Lay Marist movement since the appointment of the Council in May. On November 11th and 12th, the Council shared a similar presentation with lay Marists in the general community via a zoom call. 40 people attended, and hopefully many will be ready, along with the Brothers, to join the first cohort in the formation process. The tentative date for beginning is January 2nd, the Feast Day of the Institute.

 

 

Br. Ben Consigli ’80 recently published an article uplifting article titled “Forcing the Spring”. Br. Ben believes we must “force the spring in our winters of anxiety or past frustrations or helplessness. A spring reborn out of its ordinary time/season, amid a pandemic, that generates a vision and courage to reinvent our world.” | Click Here For Full Article

He was really touched.” During his career, Dr. Desiderio practiced out of Rothschild & Desiderio MDs and was affiliated with Sibley Memorial Hospital, Howard University Hospital, Washington Hospital Center, Providence Hospital, and Washington D.C. VA Medical Center. Dr. Desiderio has been an expert in physical medicine and rehabilitation, as well as neuromuscular medicine. He earned his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine, and he completed residencies in general surgery at Veterans Affairs Medical Center and in orthopedic surgery at Georgetown University Hospital.
