These classrooms are also being upgraded with new ceilings, energy-efficient lighting, transparent window shades that let in more light, and window film that reflects heat. Elsewhere, Molloy’s track has received repairs and fresh paint, the engraved quote above our front entrance has been restored, and our roof has received extensive repairs as part of a multi-phase project. In addition, the guidance suite (above, lower left) and college guidance suite (above, far right) are both receiving total makeovers with new air conditioning, drywall, paint, ceilings, doors, carpeting, and furniture.

St. Ann's & Molloy Grads Enjoy Annual Communion Breakfast

St. Ann's 2019

On Sunday, June 2nd, Molloy hosted graduates of St. Ann’s Academy and Molloy for our St. Ann’s Communion Breakfast. This event has been an annual tradition for many years and is a unique opportunity for the students of St. Ann’s Academy, also known as our “Original Stanners“, to come home and reconnect with the Marist Brothers and each other. The eldest Stanner in attendance was John McConville ’48, who graduated from St. Ann’s Academy 71 years ago.

In recent years, the St. Ann’s Communion Breakfast has been expanded to include graduates who have recently celebrated their 50th anniversary. This year, we were fortunate to have several grads from the 1960s in attendance. We extend an invitation to other Stanners who graduated in the 1960s to please join us at our St. Ann’s Communion Breakfast in the future. It is a wonderful chance to reconnect with Molloy and to meet the Stanners that laid the foundation for future generations...Click Here to Read More


St. Ann's & Molloy Grads Enjoy Annual Communion Breakfast

Catholic Culture Club
Recently, President Richard Karsten ’81Mr. Matt Kilkelly, and Molloy’s Catholic Culture Club visited the Marist Brothers at Champagnat Hall in the Bronx. The afternoon began with a student-led prayer service, which highlighted the namesake Saints of the Brothers present. These Saints served as inspiration to the senior brothers who have dedicated their lives to teaching and inspiring young people. During each reading, everyone prayed to be inspired “by the faith and works of the Marist Brothers.” Mr. Karsten then shared a “state of the nation” presentation regarding what’s happening at present day Molloy as well as plans for the future as Molloy rolls out its Strategic Plan. Mr. Kilkelly, moderator of the Catholic Culture Club, was pleased with the overall experience. “Seeing the students present this prayer service to the Marist Brothers and interact with them let the Brothers know they are not forgotten. It was a privilege to witness our students do this because it truly helps restore my faith in humanity.”

The Lt. John K. Gremse Graduation Assistance Fund

Archbishop Molloy High School is proud to announce the establishment of The Lt. John K. Gremse Graduation Assistance Fund. This new, critical fund will help students whose parents face unexpected and overwhelming financial difficulties leading to their inability to pay for the remaining tuition in their son’s or daughter’s senior year. Please continue reading for more information about the inspiration for this fund in memory of Lt. John “Jack” Gremse ’68.

 

John “Jack” Gremse was beloved in many circles of his life. He was a family man, a loyal friend, and a dedicated member of the FDNY. He was humble, never taking credit for saving lives or property. “I was only doing my job,” he would always say. Some of Jack’s happiest memories were with his Molloy classmates from the Class of 1968. He and his fellow Stanners would gather for mini-reunions at the Gremse family home every other summer, a tradition that has carried on for over 20 years.

 

On September 11, 2001, and in the months that followed, Jack, alongside many other first responders, took on the onerous task of what at first was hoped to be a rescue mission, but sadly turned into a recovery mission. Just five days after the attacks, Jack was promoted to Lieutenant, an achievement he took great pride in and a role he served in with dignity. Unfortunately, Jack’s work at the World Trade Center would eventually result in 9/11 related cancer. He passed away in September 2014. In memory of Jack, the Class of 1968 continues to reunite at the Gremse family home each summer...Read More
