Pray The Marist Novena

Dear Brothers and All USA Marists,

Blessings on this 234th Anniversary of St. Marcellin Champagnat’s birth. On May 28th, our Institute launched a special novena prayer which will continue through the eve of the feast of St. Marcellin on June 6th. All Marists of Champagnat are invited and encouraged to pray this novena from May 28th, Solemnity of Pentecost, to June 5th. The prayer and reflection for each day contains a short account of the life of our founder taken from the biography written by Br. Jean Baptiste Furet. You could either integrate this prayer into your daily community prayer, include it as part of any Eucharistic celebration, or use it for your own personal prayer.

As we continue to journey through this month dedicated to Mary, let us entrust to her all the needs of all members in our USA Province, especially all those dealing with challenging health or other difficult issues. We also ask her to walk with all the seniors, who will soon be graduating from our USA Marist schools. May their lives continue to be “an echo” of all they learned while in our schools. Lastly, as our church recently celebrated the Feast of Pentecost, may we continue to be open to allowing the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts and minds so that we might each be true disciples in today’s world. Likewise, we ask God’s blessing on all the young people who will soon gather at Marist College in the week ahead for the Marist Youth Conference. May each of those young people attending be filled with the Holy Spirit and come to know and love Jesus in a more profound and deeper way.

With Gratitude and Prayers,

Br. Dan O’Riordan ’85, Provincial

Asian Club Organizes AAPI Alumni Panel

In honor of AAPI Heritage Month, Molloy’s Asian Club hosted an AAPI Alumni Panel on May 15th! Organized by Ms. Haslbauer and moderated by Nancy Zilz ‘23, the panel consisted of five Molloy alumni ranging from class years 1990-2018 who took the time to speak to Stanners about being an Asian American in the professional world.

The highlighted panelists were: Edwin Wong ‘90, a banker and commercial lender, as well as the NY Democratic State Committeeman for Assembly District 28, and one of the original founders of the Asian Club at Molloy; Elyssa Noblesala ‘08, a global marketing strategist; Lauren Kim ‘09, an artist and textile designer; Valerie Villanueva ‘09, a marketing professional and health enthusiast based in London; and Clifford Robin Temprosa ‘18, a Budget Policy Coordinator at the Coalition for Asian-American Children and Families, and the Founder and Chair of the AAPI Caucus in the Queens Young Democrats.

Panelists answered questions such as, “How has your heritage shaped who you are today?” and, “What are some of your favorite traditions?” Valerie made it known that as a Filipina American, she sees the world through a specific lens, and Clifford added that his cultural identity reflects his life decisions. Edwin says he always shares his experiences so he can educate the people around him, and Elyssa said although things aren’t perfect, she is happy that there is more AAPI representation in media, as more voices are being added to the conversation.

NCAA Signing Day Includes 25 College-Bound Athletes

On May 9th, Molloy celebrated its biggest NCAA Signing Day in recent memory! 25 seniors signed a national letter of intent to continue playing their sport at their college or university. It was an exciting day for our seniors and their families, many of whom were in attendance to cheer on our student-athletes! College Counselor Mr. Gus Esgro organized the signing day. “Having been fortunate enough to be a part of this process for several years now, it was really exciting to see so many students choosing to continue their athletic careers across all three divisions of the NCAA,” said Mr. Esgro. According to Mr. Esgro, rather than solely recognizing seniors who earn athletic scholarships from their college or university, Molloy’s Athletic Department recently moved to include all college-bound athletes on signing day, making for an even greater celebration of athletic achievement.

Students Present Research at Science Symposium

On May 15th, Molloy hosted the annual Science Symposium in the William J. Murphy Library. Students presented their Science Research projects, which covered a spectrum of fascinating topics. These include a study on using Python to discriminate between music and speech (Abigail Mallia ’23), a potential link between fast-food and commercial baked goods consumption and risk of depression (Joshua Jarrett ’25), the effects of service animals on patients in medical facilities (Emily Kitson ’24), what makes certain songs bring out our emotions (Veronica Nerone ’24), and many more. Some projects saw Molloy students conduct their research with experienced mentors. Daniella Rupert-Gopalsami ’23 worked with a mentor to compare ginger and Neosporin in treating E.coli bacteria.

The research conducted by our students was thorough and the range of their interests and findings was truly impressive! Thank you to Ms. Mary Mallia for working with our students and organizing the Science Symposium, and thank you to all who attended and supported our Science Research program.

Stanners Participate in International Drone Day

On May 6th, Molloy’s drone flying team joined in the global celebration of International Drone Day at Vaughn College. The annual event seeks to raise awareness of drones’ versatility and positive impact in a variety of fields. Better known as The Bees, the team consists of Ethan Acevedo ’25, Tiffany Esquen ’25, Gurpreet Heir ’25, and Inom Mamadjonov ’25. The Bees participated in a series of workshops that taught them the latest in drone technology, how to master the art of drone flight, and how to navigate through challenging obstacles. At the end of the event, each member of the team received a drone!

As a member of The Bees, Tiffany was recognized as one of the grand prize winners in the drone flying video competition organized during the event! Congratulations, Tiffany, and congratulations to all of The Bees on being a part of International Drone Day!

Campus Ministry Organizes Family Service Day

On Saturday, May 6th, students and family members spent the afternoon serving at the Harding Ford Vision Food Pantry in Jamaica, NY. They helped to distribute food and serve over 500 people. Donations recently collected at Molloy in the form of feminine hygiene products were also distributed to patrons.

When asked about the day, Mr. Corrado said, “To see Stanner parents, siblings, and current Molloy students coming together to serve others in need is yet another shining example of how we live our mission at Molloy. Our pillars were on full display today as our Stanner families took joyful and hopeful action to address food insecurities right in our own backyard. I continue to be inspired by our students and their willingness to embrace their roles as servant leaders.”

Eloradana Francisco ‘25 shared, “It was great serving on Saturday. I feel like I have been changed because I definitely loved giving people food and seeing the smile on their faces. I would definitely do it again. I created change by feeding families that needed help and created happiness in those moments and it was a very enjoyable experience.” Adam Baksch ‘25 felt similarly. He shared, “I have been changed by this experience because it made me feel like a better person. It makes me want to volunteer again in the future and my family and I had a great time. I know my family changed for the better by this act of kindness and it made us see things from a different point of view. I hope other families could go out and do the same from this.”
