A former Bayside resident and a Douglaston denizen were two of nine people to be inducted into the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn’s hall of fame.
All of those honored are prominent people living in the five boroughs who went through the Catholic school system.
Patti Ann Browne, an anchor for Fox News Channel, was one of this year’s inductees into the diocese’s new hall of fame.
Browne attended Bayside’s St. Robert Bellarmine grammar school, St. Francis Prep High School in Fresh Meadows and Fordham University.
She lives in Nassau County with her husband and son, but her parents still live in Bayside.
Mary Murphy, who lives with her husband in Douglaston, is a reporter and anchor for WPIX Channel 11.
Murphy, who has won 18 Emmy Awards, grew up in Queens Village and attended Our Lady of Lourdes school before going to Jamaica’s Delehanty High School and Queens College.
Other inductees included health care and education advocate Sister Linda Bevilacqua,
Office of Emergency Management Commissioner Joseph Bruno, JP Morgan Chase Chief Operations Officer Frank Bisignano, city Fire Commissioner Sal Cassano, tennis great Ronald Holmberg, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes and Tom Westman, a member of the FDNY and a “Survivor” champion.
The nine inductees were honored during a ceremony on Oct. 10 in Brooklyn.
