Newman Club Memories

Dear Editor: I am sad to read in The Tablet (May 14) of the passing of Vincent Murphy.

Father Murphy and I were close friends during his stint as a Queens College Newman Club chaplain. We participated in Father Murphy’s moving weekend retreats.

Father Murphy was proud of the inter-club book swap. And also the functions such as entertaining orphans and people confined to nursing homes.

He and the Newman Center sponsored the World Hunger Coalition. It was kicked off by a speech by Yale chaplain William Sloane Coffin.

Rest in peace, Vincent Murphy. May your name be remembered with praise.
