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.

Happy Black History Month!

Intro to Black History Month produced by Ava Aimable ’22, Autumn Hill ’22 & Loyca Jean ’22.

On February 1st, Molloy began its celebration of Black History Month, a time to reflect on the inspiring and impactful work of many historical and contemporary leaders. Seniors Ava Aimable ’22, Autumn Hill ’22, and Loyca Jean ’22, members of Molloy’s Afro-Caribbean Club, have taken charge this month, overseeing and planning several initiatives to create a special celebration.

Kicking off the month, they edited and narrated an introductory video that was played during the morning homeroom broadcast and shared on Molloy’s social media (see video above). Each week of February, Ava, Autumn, and Loyca have presented Black History Month trivia, and they have also launched a series of biographical videos highlighting inspiring Black leaders including doctors, writers, poets, and more. The Afro-Caribbean Club has decorated Molloy’s first-floor hallway with signage and photos of more prominent Black leaders (pictured in the gallery below). The Molloy community can join in the celebration via the school’s Instagram page (@molloyhs), where more trivia and the biographical videos created by our students will be shared in the Instagram Stories throughout the rest of the month. To round out February, the Afro-Caribbean Club is planning one or two movie nights, as well as a school-wide fundraiser supporting a cause yet to be determined.

Special thanks to Ava, Autumn, Loyca, the Afro-Caribbean Club, and moderator Mr. Edwidge Turenne ‘98 for their hard work and dedication!

Molloy’s First Freshman Day Retreat Week is the Beginning of a New Tradition

Freshman Retreat Week was the first time an entire class was supported during a retreat.

by Bianca Basone ‘15

During the week of January 24th, Molloy introduced its first ever “Freshman Retreat Week.” The brainchild of Dr. Penikas and the result of many faculty members’ hard work, the week turned out to be a memorable, inspiring event for the Class of 2025. Unlike the well-known weekends spent at the Marist Brothers Center at Esopus a few hours away, freshmen were split up into four groups and spent four different days at Thomas Berry Place, formerly known as Bishop Molloy, in Jamaica, Queens. When asked about the outcome, Campus Ministry Director Lori Wilson stated, “it was a historic event for Molloy, the first time we were able to support an entire class during a retreat.” 

The intention of the retreats was to help freshmen understand what it truly means to be a Marist student. Stanners learned the five pillars of Marist teaching, which include Presence, Simplicity, Family Spirit, Love of Work, and In the Way of Mary. Activities such as poster making and listening to student talks gave the freshmen the opportunity to bond with one another, and become more accustomed to openly communicating with each other. Molloy is a mission-based school, teaching young people about service, self-worth, and Christian values, and the retreats were a unique way to make sure all faculty and students are on the same page regarding this mission. 

The amount of resources it took to greenlight the retreat – whether those be financial, personnel, or time – were abundant, but worth it when the outcome was one of love and community. While retreats to Esopus usually take place over the weekend, the Freshman Retreats took place during the school day. Administration, staff, and student leaders left Molloy to make sure that the day retreats were just as special, fitting three days’ worth of spirituality and unity in just a few hours. Ms. Dorothy DeNoto, Molloy’s Director of Library Services and a vital member of Campus Ministry, thanked everyone involved, stating, “The support of the faculty members, school Administrators and Marist leaders who came to participate was priceless.”  Ms. DeNoto drew inspiration from a Marist Youth Leadership Camp that took place during the summer of 2021, as well as her experience being a volunteer at hundreds of other retreats and encounters. As Ms. DeNoto shares, “The idea was to use that leadership camp as a template for a one-day local freshmen retreat for the entire class of freshmen. The goal is to educate the students about the Marist pillars in a way that will resonate with them.” 

Archbishop Molloy Hosts The Pink Games 

The event was a fundraiser to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

On Saturday, February 5th, Molloy hosted the Pink Games. Initiated by the GCHSAA, the Pink Games featured six Girls JV basketball games including Catholic schools from throughout New York City and Long Island for the purpose of raising money and awareness for breast cancer organizations. Throughout the day, alumni of the CHSAA Girls Basketball League came to speak to the teams about playing in the CHSAA and in college. The day was highlighted by the game between the Molloy Girls JV Team and the team from Notre Dame Academy of Staten Island, two top teams in the city.

Prior to the aforementioned game, Molloy’s coach, Christine Harnischfeger ‘07 – who has recently gone through treatments for breast cancer – spoke to everyone in the crowd and on the teams. In a moving speech, Christine related her discovery of a mass, how her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at the same time, their journey together, and how looking forward to coaching her team kept her going throughout the treatment. At the end of the speech, Christine named 5 Under 40 as the organization receiving the donations collected from the event. The mission of the organization is to provide “funded medical, wellness, educational, and beauty services to women under the age of 40 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or have a BRCA mutation. 

Family, friends, and players from Molloy’s varsity team showed Christine an abundance of support. Past team members and coaches from over the years also supported Christine, and overall the day was extremely special and a huge success.

In a hard-fought game, Notre Dame won the tournament in what might be a prequel to the City Championship.

Thank you to all involved!

A Little Fun on a Snowy Stanner Field

After last week’s snowstorm, World Language teacher Señor Bronsen (pictured in first photo) decided to have a little fun, inviting students out to Stanner Field to build an igloo. Students who went out to join the activity found a series of recycling bins, which they were instructed to fill with snow to make molds for the igloo. When asked about the activity, Señor Bronsen said he just wanted to help lift spirits. “In these times, it’s important to have fun whenever we can. Also, we’re promoting recycling too, which is why we’re using these bins to build our igloo!” The igloo ended up getting pretty tall, but the rain over the next few days has since washed it away. Thank you, Señor Bronsen, for always making us smile!
