On December 15th, Archbishop Molloy High School hosted its annual Christmas Concert. Families and friends were treated to an evening of festive carols and traditional songs performed by Molloy students as well as guests representing Fordham Preparatory School, Mount St. Michael Academy, and St. Catharine Academy.
