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

Class of 1963 Continues Memorial Day Tradition

On Memorial Day, we remember all those who bravely served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice. Each year, Molloy’s Class of 1963 continues a special tradition in observation of Memorial Day, donating a wreath in honor of their classmate, Private First Class Louis Willett ’63. Molloy thanks our Class of 1963 for continuing that tradition again on May 29, 2023.

PFC Willett posthumously received the Congressional Medal of Honor “for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty.” He was mortally wounded on February 15, 1967, in Kontum Province, Vietnam, while purposefully drawing enemy fire away from his platoonmates, allowing for their safe retreat. PFC Willett’s courage and selflessness continue to be remembered by our community, and especially our Class of 1963.

We are proud to honor the legacy of PFC Willett and of the many others who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

Seniors, Families, Faculty Gather for Grad Liturgy

On Thursday, June 2nd, the Molloy community gathered at St. Nicholas of Tolentine R.C. Church to celebrate our annual Graduation Liturgy. Celebrating this Mass together gives our seniors the opportunity to gather in prayer one last time as a class before they graduate and move on to the next phase of their lives. It is also an opportunity for our senior families, and Molloy’s faculty and staff, to join in prayer with the Class of 2023 and remind them that we stand behind them and continue to offer our love and support as they prepare for college and beyond.

During Mass, several students were presented with Champagnat Awards in recognition of their commitment to service and putting the needs of others before their own. Congratulations to this year’s Champagnat Award recipients (group pictured above left to right): Lindsey O’Neill, Aiden Wynter, Isabella Jorge, Tarik Lajoie, Madelyn Marshall, Nicholas Mohabir, Grace Murphy, Stephanie Mohabir, and Sophie Navarrete.

Five seniors were also recognized with Pillar Awards for embodying the qualities one of the five Marist Pillars. Congratulations to (pictured above clockwise with President Karsten or Principal Penikas): Anthony LaRussa (Presence), Mary Toner (Simplicity), Favour Olobor (Love of Work), Sarah Stafilias (Family Spirit), and Emma Hertler (In the Way of Mary),
