Special retreat weekend at Queen of the Rosary Motherhouse in Amityville. This is the motherhouse for the Dominican Sisters of Amityville. It is a weekend for women 17 years and older who might be considering religious life as their vocation. I am sure it will be a great weekend to just pray and explore religious life as a great way to live your life. Trust me, it is a great life. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact S. Diane.
Sign up in the Campus Ministries office for "Boxtown XVI AT Molloy". Sleep out in a box for one night on the Campus Green and raise money for Bethany House, a shelter for women and children in Nassau County. Sister Aimee Koonmen, a Dominican Sister of Amityville and a Molloy graduate, founded Bethany House over 30 years ago. It is a great night of being with friends, making new friends and sharing a common cause. Join the over 150 students, faculty, staff and administrators that attend this event, decorate your box and experience what some people experience each and every night. At 9 p.m. we travel over to the Hays Theater and hear the stories of some of the women who are part of Bethany House. We also have great music by the Bethany Gospel Choir and a performance by our Step Squad. Boxtown volunteers: We could use help. We have been averaging around 150 students for this event. Help in the following areas is needed... Overnight: The event ends at 6 a.m. on Friday morning with breakfast. Although, we have never had a problem at Boxtown, we do need people who will walk around from time to time throughout the night to make sure everyone is behaving appropriately. Registration (lobby of Public Square): Six people are needed to collect the forms from students, have them sign waiver forms and stamp their hands from 6:30 p.m. - 9 pm. Bankers (lobby of Public Square from 6:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.): Four people to count all the money received. Outside helpers (Campus Green from 7:30 p.m. - 9 p.m.): People to walk around the Campus Green as students are setting up their boxes. At 9 p.m., we will gather in the Hays Theater for a time of prayer and sharing. Sister Aimee and the women from Bethany House will be with us to share their stories.

The Partner Project, with the support of the Office of Advancement and the Office of Student Affairs, has organized its second annual event: Together as One: Relationship Violence - Love, Loss and Breaking the Silence forum. It will take place on Wednesday April 22 from 5 - 7 p.m. in the Madison Theatre. We are very fortunate to have Jillian Loyden with us for this event. Jillian is the former goalie of the US Woman's soccer team. In honor of her sister, Britton who was murdered by her boyfriend, Jillian has established the Jillian Loyden Foundation. One of its goals is to help break the silence against relationship and domestic violence. Jillian brings awareness to the issues of relationship and domestic violence so that what happened to her sister, Britton, doesn't happen to another women. She wants Britton's story to be heard. She does not want another family to go through what her family has experienced. The spirit of her sister carries on inside of Madden Armani, Britton's, 3-year-old son. I hope you will consider attending and hear this compelling story. There will be time for questions and answers after Jillian speaks. The event reaches across all age groups and we hope the conversation will continue. The event is free and open to everyone. Please feel free to bring friends and family and share the flyer with others who may have an interest in attending. If you would like specific information about the event or The Partner Project please contact Dr. Aprigliano.
