Champagnat Day 2022

On June 6th, the Marist world celebrated the Feast of St. Marcellin Champagnat, who founded the Marist Institute over 200 years ago. His mission of making Jesus Christ known and loved has revealed itself in many forms, especially in the education of young people and through service to those most in need.

As we come to the end of the 2021-22 school year, we are blessed to reflect on a busy year full of academic and athletic achievements, service and solidarity, friendship, and lasting memories. The mission of St. Marcellin Champagnat continues at Molloy.

Stanner Games 2022 A Big Success!

 

On Sunday, January 16th, Molloy’s student-athletes once again competed in the annual Stanner Games at the legendary Armory in Manhattan. The event featured 87 teams, 1,608 individual events, and 1,775 total athletes. 839 athletes competed in relay events.

According to Coach AJ Power ’84, the overall event was a huge success. “Molloy had a strong performance across the board, with student-athletes competing in every event. The highlight for our team was Abigail Jefferies ’22, who medaled in the 55M High Hurdles.”

The caliber of competition is very high at Stanner Games. Student-athletes represent New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and even Florida. Christian Dohler, of North Broward Prep High School in Florida, was one of the top performers at this year’s Stanner Games. The son of Stanner Games official Artie Dohler ’82, Christian won the Triple Jump and finished 5th in the Boys’ 300M Dash. Artie and Christian are pictured with Jim Feeney ’82 in the gallery below, top row center. During the meet, Christian made a point to visit the Armory Wall of Honor, where he took a photo with the plaque of the late Br. Bob Andrews, FMS (Pictured below, top row left).

“The bottom line for Molloy is that our kids get to compete among the best,” said Coach Power. “Also, the kindness & dedication of our volunteers are what set Stanner Games apart. The best meet in the country only runs because of our volunteers – alumni, parents, students, and friends. It meant a lot to have over 70 volunteers come back and safely donate their time during the pandemic. It is a testament to the dedication of our track community. Thank you all.”

Molloy’s Model UN Excels at January Conference

by Ms. Abigail Hipkin and Bianca Basone ’15

On Saturday, January 15th, Molloy’s Model United Nations Club attended Saint Francis Prep’s “PrepMUNC XV” Model UN conference. The group of seven, consisting of Ryan Curran ’22, Sabrina Nagle ’22, Stutee Oke ’23, Madison Pena ’22, Lauren Soh ’22, George Stathopoulos ’23, and Justin Wang ’24, excelled at the conference, representing a diverse list of countries in both the General Assembly and United Nations Human Rights Council.

Some of the issues discussed were the HIV/Aids crisis, Syrian detention camps and the human rights abuses that occur within them, child labor for mining, and the illegal firearm trade. Out of the dozens of students from two other schools, Molloy’s very own senior Sabrina Nagle was honored as the “Best Delegate” in the Human Rights Council for her representation of the Philippines (pictured below left).

Saturday’s conference was the first one to be held in-person in two years, and the experience made the participating Stanners excited for the future of the club. Congratulations Model UN club and congratulations Sabrina!

 


 

Stanners Hope to Use World Language Skills In Service Abroad

By Señor Bronsen Stoltz and Bianca Basone ‘15

An important goal at Archbishop Molloy High School is to make sure students are utilizing what they learned in the classroom and applying their knowledge to the outside world, demonstrated in the school motto, “Non scholae sed vitae.” The collaboration between Señor Bronsen’s Spanish 3 classes and Campus Ministry’s Ms. Lori Wilson is a great example of how students can use what they learn after they graduate!

For the past two weeks, Spanish teacher Señor Bronsen took a break from the traditional class structure of learning Spanish language skills, and instead taught his students how they could use their knowledge of the language to have amazing experiences all around the world. Señor Bronsen explained how to book flights and find accommodations so that they may vacation, study, or even work abroad.

However, as one of the Marks of the Marist Student is to be an agent of justice and service, the Spanish classes also learned how to utilize their language skills and newfound knowledge of travel in regards to service. As Campus Ministry Director, Ms. Wilson was invited into all five Spanish 3 classes as a guest speaker. She shared with students her volunteer experience in Haiti, Africa, and Mexico, bringing items from these countries into the classroom so students could get an up-close look at the brilliance of other cultures. Being able to speak Spanish can propel Stanners into volunteer and service positions around the world, and not just in English-speaking countries.

When asked about the experience, Señor Bronsen stated, “It’s been a great way for Ms. Lori Wilson to meet over 186 students… and for them to get to know her as well in a more personal way.” Stanners that weren’t too familiar with Campus Ministry now know where her office is and are encouraged to stop by and discover service opportunities locally and abroad that they may not have been aware of. “I can tell from the students’ questions that they were very much engaged, interested, and intrigued. [Their] world view was widen[ed] just a little bit more from this collaboration,” Señor Bronsen proudly stated about this experience. He recommends other teachers invite Ms. Wilson into their classrooms as well so that more students can learn how to get involved in Campus Ministry and find out more about opportunities in which they can utilize their new language skills.

This self-improvement book attempts to help men shift with the times by learning insights that will help them step up, reach out, and move forward.
