Above is a rare image of a placard celebrating the Silver Jubilee (1884-1909) of the Rev. Patrick J. Fahey at the Church of Benedict Joseph in Morris Park. The photo collage depicts the ceremony that was held with marching band and a large contingency of parishoners acknowledging their gratitude to their beloved Reverend along what is now 117th Street between 95th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue in Richmond Hill, NY.
