We are a group of Salesian Alumni who have come together because of our common love for Father Murphy. At some point in our lives, each one of us was touched by the giving man known as “the Murph”. We all have our own stories that will be shared on a regular basis on the website under the “Murph Stories” column.
As has been mention in this website, Father Murphy taught us through his example that if you could help those in need, you did. It was his gift to us. The gift of “Giving Back”!
So in that light, here are some brief bio’s on the group that today is known as the “Friends of Father Murphy”.
