Answer for 5/27/22:

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.

In just two weeks, the Stanner Players will be taking center stage with their performance of Into the Woods! With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, this popular musical depicts the interactions between multiple fairy tale characters, such as Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood. According to Ms. Shannon Winters ‘06, resident English teacher and director of Molloy’s Theater Program, “We’ve wanted to perform Into the Woods for over a year now, and we’re excited that we’re finally able to. Plus, everybody knows and loves fairy tales!”

Performances will be held March 31 through April 3, 2022, with the showing on March 31st being exclusive to students and faculty. Into the Woods will be one of the first shows performed in front of a full, in-person audience since the beginning of 2020, with the first being the Senior Show earlier this month. The Stanner Players will not be required to wear masks, but will still have the option to do so; the same applies to audience members. As the theater is open to all, there will be no livestream option for this performance, so make sure you buy your tickets to secure your seat!

Rehearsals for the show are going better than ever, with all Stanner Players, stage crew, and everyone else involved excited to be back in person working with each other. “The kids are very spirited,” says Ms. Winters, “constantly talking and editing and working together.” The Stanner Players themselves are especially excited because “basically everyone is a lead,” and “everyone acting has solo lines,” according to Ms. Winters.

Ms. Winters would like to highlight Joe Bruno ‘22, Molly McGuinness ‘22, and Keren Elmore ‘22, seniors that have been in every Stanner Player production during their four years at Molloy. Tatiana Egas ‘22, another senior that has dedicated her four years to the Theater Program, has been Stage Manager and has assisted in directing all productions! Pablo Ortega ‘22 and Angelina Warren ‘22 have acted as multiple-time Assistant Stage Managers. Ms. Winters is sad to see all of these bright and dedicated seniors leave Molloy, but proud of their accomplishments!

On March 8th, Molloy joined in the celebration of International Women’s Day by shining a spotlight on the members of GERLL Club (Girls Empowerment for Real Life Leadership). Together, they supported the 2022 theme #BreakTheBias!

Throughout Women’s History Month, the leaders of GERLL Club are working hard on a number of initiatives to promote inclusiveness and equity, and to empower the present and future women of Molloy. One such initiative is the Women at Work Panel, which will feature four outstanding women in Law Enforcement. The event will take place on March 22, 2022 at 3:30pm at Molloy. All are welcome.

Molloy Represented At Marist Youth Encounter

From March 4-6, students, alumni, faculty, and other Marist schools gathered at Esopus for a Marist Youth Encounter! Students from five Marist schools attended the retreat to “Encounter Christ.” According to Ms. Wilson, Director of Campus Ministry, “This happens when the students learn about themselves, understand that they are not alone in their feelings, and get to relax, have a little fun, step back and be reflective.”


It Feels Good To Be Back At Esopus!

Back Row: Mr. Vinny Leonardo, Br. James Norton ’63, Ms. Dorothy DeNoto, Mr. Dan O’Reilly ’14, Mr. Jim Sheldon ’88, Br. John Dunning, Ms. Lori Wilson, and Ms. Merl Doyle; Bottom Row: Ms. Rose Haslbauer, Ms. Mary Edward ’13, Ms. Shannon Winters ’06, and Mr. Brian Klimas ’98.

Between the recent Marist Youth Encounter and the return of class retreats, Stanners are feeling good about being back at the Marist Brothers’ Center at Esopus! After two years of many postponed retreats, students have enjoyed more opportunities to visit the beloved upstate property. Recently, Sophomores enjoyed a retreat at Esopus, which was based on the Marist pillar In the Way of Mary. “We are all on a journey of faith, and this weekend allowed us to rest along that journey,” said Ms. Wilson, Director of Campus Ministry.

Practicing Solidarity This Lenten Season

Pictured above: President Karsten ’81, Principal Dr. Penikas, Mr. McCleary, Ms. Wilson, and Campus Ministry volunteers present bags of donations.

Earlier this month, Molloy and the Marist World began celebrating our Lenten theme of solidarity. It is our call to Solidarity that invites us to help others in a variety of ways. Molloy students, faculty, and our greater community have already been engaged in several drives during March. Read below to find out how you can participate in our remaining initiatives during Lent. There is an opportunity each week of Lent. Let’s make the world a better place together. 

March 7th – 14th – Thanks to a collaboration between Athletics, Campus Ministry, and the Marist Brothers at Molloy, Stanners were able to send bags full of supplies to the Dominican Republic this Lenten season. Students, parents, faculty, and alumni donated shoes and backpacks to be distributed to our brothers and sisters in need in the DR. The backpacks will be filled with school supplies, because according to Ms. Wilson, “The belief is that education is the key to change. Thank you to all who helped organize the drive, and to those who donated!

March 14th – 21st – We are practicing solidarity with homeless New Yorkers. Donations of new men’s socks, underwear, gently used sweatshirts and pants can be dropped off at Molloy’s security desk. All are invited to donate these items. A breakfast run coinciding with the delivery of donations will take place on April 2nd.

March 21st – 25th – During Molloy Spirit Week, Molloy will stand in solidarity with Marists in Venezuela. Economic, social, and political conditions have deteriorated to the point where the over 400 Marist educators and their families are struggling. There are currently 450 Marist teachers and almost 5,000 Marist students that attend nine impoverished Marist schools in rural areas of Venezuela. They are often deprived of the most essential necessities (i.e. food, medications, etc.). Teachers in these schools earn between $20 – $30 per month in salaries and the cost to feed one fellow Marist educator in Venezuela for a month is $27. More information will be shared at www.molloyhs.org.

Congratulations to Peter Farrell ’64, who was inducted into the Track & Field Coaches Hall of Fame in December. Peter was a national record holder at Molloy, world record holder at Notre Dame, and coached numerous All-Americans, several Olympians, and one NCAA champion during his 40 year career at Princeton University.

Members from the St. John’s University Board of Trustees met for their quarterly board meeting in Rome this past week. While there, they were able to visit the Vatican Museums, The Coliseum & Forum, as well as attend mass led by Fr. Shanley at St. Peter’s Basilica. The trip was highlighted by speeches given by two current St. John’s students and Ozanam Scholars who are studying in Rome this semester. One of those speakers was Molloy Class of 2018 grad, Mikesha Withanachchi!

Pictured: Jim Shannon ‘83, Jim Galowski ’81 and Joe Tarantino ‘76 with SJU Ozanam Scholar, Presidents Society member and AMHS alumna Mikesha Withanachchi ’18.


Earlier this month, retired NBA star Kenny Anderson ’89 shared an awesome photo from his visit to Molloy last summer. Kenny was at Molloy in August 2021 to film scenes and interviews for an upcoming documentary about legendary NYC point guards. The photo that Kenny shared was from an interview in our locker room, which featured lots of cool decorative pieces and fog for added effect! Thanks for sharing, Kenny! Follow Kenny Anderson on Twitter (@chibbs_1) and Instagram (@chibbs_1). We will share more information about the documentary when it becomes available.

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Marie Pellegrino, mother of Frank Pellegrino of Mount St. Michael Academy.
