Anniversary of Marist Institute Founding

by Br. Thomas Schady, FMS, Director of Marist Education

January 2, 2021 – Today is an important day in our Marist history as we recognize the critical work we do as educators of kids in the way of Marcellin Champagnat. We mark the 204th anniversary of the official founding of the Marist Brothers in LaValla, France which occurred on January 2, 1817.

This founding date is noted as a direct response to an earlier date on October 28, 1816 when Marcellin administered the last rites to the dying sixteen-year-old boy, Jean Baptiste Montagne. Marcellin was devastated when he realized that Jean-Baptiste had no formal religious or academic education and, that had he lived, Jean-Baptiste would have been the victim of illiteracy and resulting poverty for the rest of his life. The thought that went through Marcellin’s mind was, “There are many more young people like this.”

Motivated to address this issue directly, Marcellin invited two young men, Jean Marie Granjon and Jean-Baptiste Audras to join him in founding a religious congregation of teaching brothers dedicated to giving young people a religious and academic education that would lift them out of a life of inter-generational poverty.

Marcellin moved his two recruits into a small house on the parish property.  There he taught them how to read and write and formed them in their faith to become the first Marist Brothers and Marist teachers. Marcellin also taught them to make nails, a skill he learned from his father. The sale of the nails to local builders was an early source of income for the soon-to-be religious order.

May God bless our efforts, and may we place our trust and work in the sacred hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Stanner-Owned & Operated Restaurants: Take Our Survey

As we all continue to navigate the challenges of COVID-19, the Stanner Alumni Center recognizes that the restaurant / food services industry has been and continues to be significantly impacted throughout the pandemic. Many Stanner-owned and operated restaurants are among the many businesses that are working within strict health and safety guidelines, including restrictions on indoor dining and a model based on takeout, delivery, and outdoor dining in the cold winter months.

We would like to celebrate Stanner-owned and operated restaurants by promoting these businesses during an upcoming “Stanner Restaurant Week”. Molloy wants to do its part to help these businesses by encouraging our community to support them however they can. We invite restaurant owners/operators and food service managers to fill out a brief survey to help us collect important data that will help us promote your businesses in the coming weeks. Click the button below to begin the survey. Please complete the survey by January 31st. (If you encounter any problems with the survey please contact alumni@molloyhs.org).



Reminder: Lou Santos Scholarship Gift Match Through 1/15

Archbishop Molloy High School is grateful to all Stanners and friends who continue to support our students and our Marist mission. Recently, an anonymous donor generously offered to spread Christmas cheer by initiating a $20,000 Gift Match in support of The Lou Santos Scholarship.

Known as “Coach Lou” to many Stanners, Mr. Santos has served the Molloy community as a teacher, coach, and friend for over 40 years. The scholarship in Mr. Santos’ name will benefit a Catholic student with demonstrated financial need.

The Gift Match began just before Christmas and will run through January 15th. The match is 1:1, meaning your gift of any amount will be matched dollar for dollar up to $20,000. Your gift of $50 becomes $100; $150 becomes $300, $250 becomes $500, and so on! We hope you can help us meet this gift match in honor of Mr. Santos. Visit www.molloyhs.org/donate/ and make a gift to The Lou Santos Scholarship today.

THANK YOU for your continued support of Molloy’s mission, and may you find happiness and good health in 2021.

Molloy Celebrates Advent Liturgy

On December 18th, Molloy celebrated its annual Advent Liturgy. Celebrant Fr. Joseph Gibino joined a limited number of students and faculty in the cafeteria for the socially distanced Liturgy. Students in classrooms and at home also had the opportunity to watch a live broadcast. In a time when many school events have not been able to take place as normal, the opportunity to celebrate Liturgies in some form is a blessing for our community. Thank you to all those who made the Advent Liturgy possible.


Students Participate In Virtual CPR-AED Training

In November and December, over 230 Molloy students participated in virtual CPR-AED training. These students were the first of eight virtual training sessions that will be offered by the Dominic A. Murray 21 Memorial Foundation during the 2020-21 school year. Over 900 Molloy students are signed up to participate in the remaining sessions.

The Dominic A. Murray 21 Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit 501c3 organization. “DomHeart21” provides heart screenings for early detection, training in CPR and AED, and lifesaving equipment to eliminate sudden cardiac death in young people. They are committed to expand CPR-AED training, AED access, and heart screenings, so that no family loses a child for lack of screening, training or life-saving equipment.



Lay Marists Update

The Council for Lay Marists USA is excited to share that 54 people from the US Province were part of the first cohort in their new formation program, known as the Marists of Champagnat. They began their formation with an opening prayer on January 2nd. After spending the month of January in prayer and discernment, the group will begin attending webinars on various Marist topics. The five webinars will be held approximately every 3 weeks. Finally, the month of May will again be spent in prayer and retreat, with a commitment ceremony and celebration held on June 6th. This formation program is part of a new effort led by Lay Marists USA to deepen the relationship of Lay Marists across the globe, and reaffirming their role in the Marist Mission to make Jesus Christ known and loved through the education of young people. The Council for Lay Marists USA consists of Richard Karsten ’81 (NY), Br. Owen Ormsby ’74 (NY), Lindsay Irwin (TX), Br.

Molloy Donates iPads To Local Catholic Academy

In December, Archbishop Molloy High School donated five iPads to Resurrection Ascension Catholic Academy. The donation was facilitated by Mr. Matt Morgado ’08, Information Technology Coordinator, and Mr. CJ Mallia, Vice President of Technology & Innovation. Joann Heppt, Principal of Resurrection Ascension, thanked Molloy for its gift, noting that one-to-one devices are especially essential right now as schools reduce the use of shared devices and students continue to adapt in the unique circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic.



News From Virtual Enterprise

Mr. Joe Touzin and the seniors in his Virtual Enterprise class recently conducted a Zoom meeting with Mr. Paul Presti, the New York metro area regional director for the Virtual Enterprise program. Mr. Presti was accompanied by two of his colleagues, Elizabeth and Meghan. During the meeting, students discussed their business ideas, the modified competition calendar (due to COVID-19), and best practices for their original businesses. According to their website, Virtual Enterprise is an “educational non-profit that transforms students through authentic business experiences, preparing them for fulfilling, financially secure futures.”


In December, Rick Reilly ’63 and wife Judy were selected to be Mr. and Mrs. Claus for the 2020 Winter Wonderland Festival at Boston College. Rick shared that it was a wonderful and fun time despite needing to socially distance from the visiting children.
