Auxiliary Bishop Raymond Chappetto joined the Archbishop Molloy H.S. community in praying for those who  have devoted their lives to religious vocations and for members of the lay community who do God’s work in other important ways.

“Who does God call you to be?” he asked the students in Briarwood.

To help them answer this question, Bishop Chappetto asked the students to reflect on the dreams they held when they were young and encouraged them to continue the pursuit of those dreams through their faith in God. He reminded them that part of that pursuit is performing the works of the Church, and as lay people, they play a significant role in God’s plan.

“We were honored to have Bishop Chappetto celebrate Mass at Molloy,” said Richard Karsten, president. “The Year of Marist Vocations has provided a special opportunity for our religious leaders to teach students that their work as young Catholic Marists has only just begun. We hope that this Mass and other events throughout the year will continue to inspire them to think about their faith more deeply now as well as beyond high school.
