For nearly 50 years, Freshman Camp has provided young Stanners with the opportunity to make new friends and learn more about the Molloy community before the start of the school year. Campers celebrate Mass together, experience personal and spiritual growth, and enjoy many fun recreational activities throughout the beautiful Esopus property. The Freshmen also get to meet volunteers representing faculty, staff, students, and alumni, reinforcing the lifelong connections in our community.

2020-21 Yearbook Arrives

Typically, Molloy’s Yearbook arrives in May, just in time for seniors to receive them after graduation. This year, due to COVID-19, production of the Yearbook was pushed back, resulting in a first-ever August arrival. The cover of the 2020-21 Yearbook references the A and B cohorts that students were split into for much of the school year. Congratulations to the Yearbook staff on the completion of an excellent edition of “Blue & White” during a most unique school year.

The Class of 2022, Class of 2023, and Class of 2024 will receive their yearbook when they return in September.

 


 

Looking Back: Molloy’s School Song – “Blue & White

Br. Roy George ’62 recently visited the Stanner Alumni Center in search of the lyrics to Molloy’s school song. Although students today would have no idea there was ever a school song, Br. Roy distinctly remembers learning it back when he was a student in the early 1960s. The Stanner Alumni Center provided Br. Roy with a copy of the lyrics from an archival document. While reading the lyrics, Br. Roy was still unsure of the song’s melody.

Br. Roy asked The Beehive to include the lyrics in today’s issue and to ask our community at large if anyone who remembers the song would be interested in submitting a recording of themselves singing the song as they remember it. Br. Roy would appreciate any submission that would help jog his memory. You can submit a recording to alumni@molloyhs.org or share via Google Drive.

In June, experienced hiker Dr. Bill Endy ’68 announced that he plans to hike the Grand Canyon rim to rim, while providing video updates on his new Youtube Channel. Bill also announced that if his Youtube Channel can reach 1,000 subscribers, it will become monetized, allowing him to donate all proceeds from his channel views to Molloy’s John K. 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.

Dr. Endy’s most recent updates have focused on his training and preparation for the rim-to-rim hike. The series of updates is titled Aging Ungracefully, and you can follow along with Dr. Endy as he continues to prepare for this epic hike. Please consider subscribing to Dr. Endy’s channel to show your support. Contact 718.441.9210 for more information about the John K. Gremse Graduation Assistance Fund. | Visit Dr. Endy’s Youtube Channel

Jonas Verdeflor ’98 has completed his academics at St. John Seminary. In April 2021, he successfully defended his thesis on St. Maximilian Kolbe and completed his oral comprehensive exams. The Oblates of the Virgin Mary have assigned Br. Jonas Verdeflor, OMV, to the retreat house in Milton, Massachusetts, for his pastoral year. During that time, Br. Verdeflor will continue his formation as an Oblate through ministry work and community life with fellow Oblates. His new assignment began June 28th and his final vows will take place soon.


Brian Mitchell ’69 recently shared a vintage photo of himself with the late Dr. Patrick Murphy, along with a story. Back in 2003, Brian was on a cruise to Scandinavia and Russia. Oslo was the last stop on the cruise. After leaving the ship, Brian recalled a note from Molloy’s alumni newsletter that Dr. Murphy would spend his summers in Oslo. Brian looked up Dr. Murphy and was surprised to see he was near his location. Brian and Dr. Murphy were able to connect for a drink at the harbor before Brian was scheduled to depart for Norway. Unfortunately, this meeting would be the last time Brian would see Dr. Murphy. Thinking back further, Brian believes he was a student in Dr. Murphy’s first history class back in 1965.
