Archbishop Molloy's 'Fast-A-Thon' Fundraiser

 

 

Earlier this spring, Molloy students participated in a seven hour Fast-A-Thon organized by Campus Ministry. Students skipped their normal lunch period and instead spent time together in our chapel. “The Fast-A-Thon is a powerful and spiritual experience that teaches our students to understand what it means to sacrifice, when in reality there are millions of people who sacrifice their meals unwillingly,” said Campus Ministry Director Mike Germano ’93. The students who participated were sponsored by family and friends, and together they raised $3,200 for Magnificat Farm in Kentucky. This project, started by a graduate of fellow Marist school Roselle Catholic, serves the needs of the local community by sharing a wide expanse of farmland that includes a new chapel. The farm also provides physical and spiritual sustenance for people in need.
