Mission: Living it Forward...

2017 Collaboration at Camp Sol Naciente

From January 2 thru January 11, Molloy students Lucia Agosti, Jessica Holdsworth, Elizabeth Meittinis, Justin Reyes, Molloy graduate, Thomas Malinowski, and I joined four students and three employees from Dominican College in Blauvelt, New York for an amazing experience in El Salvador.  This is the fourth year we have travelled to La Union 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 45 children attended the camp.

For ten short days, we lived and put into action our Mission Statement. The theme of the camp this year was the famous quote from Dominican Saint, Catherine of Siena, "Be who you are meant to be and you will set the world on fire!"

The video below hopefully brings our experience alive for all of you.  Special thanks to Dominican Sister, Barbara Schwarz, who crafted the video for us!  We can't wait to go back in 2018.
