JEMAIL: McEneney, Mike (MC1953) reports on retreat


Dear John,

Last weekend was the 27th Annual Manhattan College Businessmen’s Reality Retreat held at the Bishop Molloy Retreat House in Jamaica Estates, Queens. It was another success! About 50 men were in attendance and the speakers were very inspiring. Each attendee was presented with a copy of The Catholic Prayer Bible (Lecito Divina Edition) by Sister Joan Curtin, the Sunday Morning speaker.

Plans are already under way for next year’s Retreat which will be held on September 13, 14, & 15th 2019.

JEMAIL: Tribute For Finnegan, Ray [MC1970 RIP] from Delaney, Tom [MC1971]


Good Morning All,

Tom Delaney has shared a tribute to Ray Finnegan and I want to share it with you. Thank you Tom.

# – # – #

Ray Finnegan was a classmate of mine at both Cardinal Spellman HS and MC. I graduated a year later in 71.

Ray contributed to both schools and assisted with supporting mentorships for Engineering students, MC Summer Engineering Appreciation Program (SEAP) to interest women, minorities and others in Engineering, MC Construction Golf outing. Plus several national Civil Engineering Societies. 

I believe that he oversaw the rebuilding of the basements of the WTC after ’93.

A wonderful person who I have the privilege of knowing for over 50 years.

May he Rest In Peace,

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) on Father’s Dat


Good Afternoon All,

Tomorrow, Sunday, June 17, 2018, is a special day for each of us as Fathers, Sons, Daughters. From the first moment Peggy and I met our Son Scott in the delivery room at LIJ Hospital, I knew that the title that would always mean the most to me was Father, otherwise known as Dad. Through life’s trials,  hurts and joys, meetings with teachers (good and not so good, meetings and teachers) rave reviews from Coaches, some iffy ones from School Principals, dented fenders, sharing dissappointments and successes, seeing him mature and grow into the man he is today, being fortunate to be able to learn from him as well. Those things all come to mind for me on Father’s Day as I am sure they do for you. For those of us whose Fathers have been called home, praise God because we had them in our lives, remember them in your prayers. You are remembered in mine.

Happy Father’s Day. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)

JEMAIL: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) comments on Puglia, Gabrielle [MC2010]


Good Morning All,

A couple of days ago, I shared some information regarding Fellow Jasper Gabrielle Puglia ’10 BA being considered for A Woman Of Distinction Award. In speaking with Gabrielle I realize that last week she was the recipient of the Brooklyn Woman Of Distinction Award for her dedication, commitment and accomplishments in support of our Veterans, in particular, her Hero’s Benefit which she established and her Wreaths Accross America efforts. Gabrielle is truely a Woman Of Distinction who quietly goes about helping our Veterans. I will share, in the near future, information as to Her Hero’s Benefit efforts.

Gabrielle in my mind is a Hero, she makes Manhattan College proud. She was Honored with her Woman Of Distinction Award by the Community News Group (CNG) who run publications such as The Brooklyn Daily, The Brooklyn Courier, and the Mill Basin Courier. She somehow finds time to work at a Wall Street Firm, study for her Master’ Degree with a strenuous curriculum, manage her household and dedicate herself to her praying for, honoring the Fallen and helping Veterans. A very busy Woman Of Distinction and Service. Thank you Gabrielle. We will keep you in our prayers. Thank you all. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
