Service to others is at the heart of what each Marist school does. During any given school year, students at Archbishop Molloy High School are actively involved with service programs around the school, in New York City, and on several service trips across the globe. As part of this year’s celebration of the founding of the Marist Institute, our students will be working with families at the local homeless shelter in Jamaica, Queens, tutoring ESL and Math at the ComUnidad Juan Diego in East Harlem, and helping migrant families in southern Arizona. In addition, Molloy will actively participate in the Marist National Day of Service on March 29th through a variety of planned service projects, fundraisers, and prayer services.



Kickoff Event

Between 100 and 200 Molloy students will gather in our cafeteria to make a large number of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that will be donated to local shelters and food pantries.


Mt. St. Michael/Park Clean-Up

With the help of Br. Brian Poulin, Molloy will collaborate with Mount Saint Michael Academy on a local service project. 20 students and 3 chaperones from Molloy will travel by bus to a city park and assist in a clean-up. The park is TBD, but will be equidistant from both schools. The volunteers for this service project will depart from Molloy around 9am.


Briarwood Shelter    

Around 1pm, 90 students accompanied by 5 faculty members will visit Briarwood Shelter to engage in a service project with our local community. The specifics of the project will be disclosed by the shelter later in March.   




Another one of our service programs, Lifespire, will arrange a unique project in which our students will help special needs adults. 12 students and 1 faculty member will meet with the adults and help them with any tasks they have for that day. The time of this volunteer effort is currently TBD.


St. Marcellin Champagnat Society (SMCS)

A bus with 100 students and 4 faculty members will travel to the Rockaways to help with beach clean-up and other residual effects of Superstorm Sandy dating back to 2012. Time is TBD.


SMCS – Harlem Tutoring

Around 1 pm, a bus with 12 students and 1 faculty member will make its way to tutor children in math at ComUnidad Juan Diego in East Harlem.


Care Packages

Around 1pm, 150 students will be actively engaged in making care packages to be donated to Midnight Run and other organizations who benefit those in need. This project will take place in Molloy’s cafeteria.


All students and faculty who have been out during the service day should arrive back at Molloy around 3:30pm, and the day will conclude in our theater with a closing prayer and reflection.
