Living the Mission in El Salvador
From January 2 to 11th, students and alumni from Molloy collaborated with Dominican College in Blauvelt, New York for an amazing experience in Sol Naciente, El Salvador. They traveled to El Salvador to assist Sister Flor de Maria Buruca (Dominican Sister of Amityville and graduate of Molloy College) in running a camp for the children in the village of Sol Naciente. This year 37 children attended the camp! This year's camp focused on Saint Oscar Romero which included a visit from the saint and a lesson on the importance of love.
Molloy Students: Eileen Connolly, Eddie Cramsie, Morgan Schamberg, Julia Winkler

Led By: Thomas Malinowski - Alumni Sister Diane Capuano, O.P. Kathleen Friend - Dominican Associate Michelle Martin - Campus Minister
This area of El Salvador has an inadequate supply of water. Some members of the community have not had running water for over 20 years. After years of hard work and obstacles, the clean water project, sponsored by the Pearl River Rotary Club, in collaboration with the San Miguel Rotary Club, is officially starting construction on a new well that will bring clean water to these communities. Our students participated in the blessing of this land before the construction began.
