Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,

implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence,

I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.

To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

O Mother of the Word Incarnate,

Despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer.

    Stay strong sisters during this time of pestilence. Amen 🙏🏽
  • From Andrew Pierre '15

    Dear Dominican Sisters,

    I pray that everyone is happy, healthy, and safe during this unprecedented time. Thank you so much for creating Albertus Magnus High school. This Albertus community has rallied together to support one another. I am grateful for all of the faculty, administration, and staff that has helped us become great young men and women. Let's continue to pray for each other and support one another.

  • From Anne (Doyle) Murphy, '75

    Dear Sisters,

    I want to thank you for a terrific education and moral foundation. Please take care of yourselves during this awful time. I have nothing but good memories of my time at Albertus. God bless and keep you.

  • From Anne Molloy, '71

    Dearest Sisters,

    You taught me (Anne Malloy ‘71). You taught my children (Bridget Lee ‘99, Theresa Lee ‘00, James Lee ‘03, Deidre Lee ‘04). And you are teaching my nephews (Neil Holihan ‘21, John Holihan ‘23). There is nothing I can say that will thank you enough!! We are praying for you.

  • From Beata Welsh, '67

    Thank you, sisters, for the gift of education. I owe you more than I can express.

    May the Lord continue to be with you and hold you in God's palm.


    Beata Welsh, Class of '67
  • From Francis G. Belardi, MD

    During times of crisis we reflect on our past including the good times and times of challenge. As such, I often reflect on AMHS in thought and prayer, and I am most grateful to those who made the four years at AMHS possible ..... the Dominican Sisters of Sparkhill. Thank you for providing me with a great education and most importantly for setting the moral compass for my life. You are all remembered in my daily prayers.

    Francis G. Belardi, MD Class of 1965
  • From Kathleen (Keane) Cobb, '63

    I want to thank you and those who went before you for your devotion and service to all of us. I think of you often, and I pray that you stay healthy during this pandemic. God bless you and all who are suffering.

    Kathleen (Keane) Cobb Class of 1963
  • From Rita (Donaldson) Bladel, '67

    Hi! I am Rita (Donaldson) Bladel class of 1967 for Albertus Magnus HS and class of 1971 for STAC!
    I feel that I received the best education from all you dear women and want to thank you so very much! My math teachers launched me into a career in teaching math in the Clarkstown Central School District from which I retired in 2004. You were all an inspiration!

    May God bless you all and keep you all well!

  • From Suzanne Pomeroy Jagodnik '96

    Dear Sisters,

    During these difficult times, I want you to know you are in my thoughts, prayers and my heart. My years at Albertus Magnus are remembered often. I am blessed to be a member of the AM Family! St. Helen Robert Boyd and Sr. Miriam, I can’t begin to tell you how often I think of you! 😊 You ladies made such an amazing impact on my life and I thank you for all the wisdom, love and guidance you shared with me. Please be safe and healthy. May God be with you all.

    Fondest wishes,
    Suzanne Pomeroy Jagodnik Class of 1996
