Basketball Program Turns 40

The CYO Basketball program at St. Margaret of Cortona in the Bronx — founded by Father Thomas Murphy, S.J. — is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2017.

Father Murphy was the parochial vicar at the parish 40 years years and realized the need of an athletic program as a positive outlet for the parish youth.

To mark the anniversary, the CYO program took this photo at its annual sports night in March to have framed and presented to Father Murphy, who now resides in the Jesuit residence at Fordham University.
