Update On Our Community – 11/16/20

Can you believe it? 2020 is almost over and we are gearing up for the holiday season. While we are sure most of us are looking forward to next year, I think we can agree that we have learned some good lessons having gone through the past several months. One of those lessons is that how we spend our time matters. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone all reunions and alumni games until further notice.

Although we recognize important class milestones and the joy of reconnecting with your classmates and teammates, we want to ensure the safety and welfare of our alumni, their guests, our faculty, staff and students. When it is safe, we look forward to welcoming everyone back to rekindle old friendships and share in fond memories!

Currently the Seventeenth Annual President’s Dinner is still scheduled for Saturday, May 1, 2021 at Russo’s on the Bay at 6 p.m. We will honor John Crabill ’69, Mark Motroni ‘84 and Sister Alexandria Wolochuk, O.P. with the Cor Jesu Award. Stephanie Bernik, MD FACS will receive the McClancy Leadership Award. The classes of 1970 and 1971 will celebrate their 50th anniversary from graduating from McClancy.

The Brother Robert Connolly Golf Classic is scheduled for Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at the Clearview Park Golf Course in Bayside, NY with an 8:00 a.m. tee off. You can register online at: https://msgrmcclancy.org/alumni/

If any alumni would like to schedule a private tour of the school or if you any questions or concerns please contact Pat Civitano ’96, Director of Advancement at 718-397-9343 or pcivitano@msgrmcclancy.info. It is so important that our current students understand who our alumni are and how important all of you are to our school community.

Stay safe! God Bless!
