Advent Liturgy & Christmas Cheer Parade

December 21st was filled with the spirit of the season as Molloy first celebrated its Advent Liturgy, and later, Stanners walked the halls singing Christmas songs led by Dr. Des Flynn ‘97 and the Christmas Cheer Committee!

Molloy students, faculty, and staff gathered together in the Jack Curran Gym to celebrate Mass and rejoice in the spirit of giving. Father Peter Purpura ‘99, from Our Lady of Hope parish in Middle Village, encouraged us to follow in Mary’s footsteps, because “we are called to bring Christ to others by living lives of charity for one another.” The Mass was given several unique touches, including a candlelight procession, a performance by Molloy’s String Ensemble, and an interpretive dance (pictured below). After Mass, President Richard Karsten ’81 joined students and other staff who previously attended Our Lady of Hope Catholic Academy for a group photo with Fr. Purpura.

As students were packing up for their break, the Christmas Cheer Committee walked up and down the hallways, signing carols! Accompanied by a few acoustic guitars, the committee made sure to leave Molloy with a positive, fun experience before their holiday vacation.
