“This is what we are about: we plant seeds that one day will grow, we water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise, we lay foundations that will need future development, we provide yeast that produce effects beyond our abilities.”

~ Archbishop Oscar Romero

This reflection of Archbishop Romero is what D.P. Murphy adopted in 1873 and was a motto for the business. In fact, it is the backbone for the employees of delivering wonderful service and providing valuable experience to our clients. Those first seeds had sprouted to a special organization, and that same spirit has driven us throughout the years. We’ve always valued personal integrity, customer focus and personal relationships most deeply. These principles are what have enabled us to thrive throughout the many tribulations of a nearly a century and a half.

Recently, the Murphy family decided to pass the torch to a company that best fit D.P. Murphy’s company philosophy. Through many of the interested parties there was one company that has the shared values of D.P. Murphy and that match is with Cathedral Corporation. Cathedral, like D.P. Murphy, has a long, rich history serving the Catholic community. For over 100 years they have provided exceptional customer service with member-based organizations, assisting them in achieving their financial goals, all building a strong mutual relationship with all of their clients. This “marriage” represents two strong heritages into an even stronger one.

The “new” D.P. Murphy will continue to operate from our offices on Long Island and will retain our invaluable corps of dedicated employees, many of whom have worked for us for over 30 years. The technological improvements invested will still be here to serve our clients. In addition, adding the resources of Cathedral to the mix allows us to now deliver other valuable products and services – such as full-color weekly offertory envelopes, diocesan and parish websites, online giving options, fundraising campaign services and much more.

It is an exciting time to be serving you – our valued customers! We appreciate your business and thank you for all of your loyalty throughout the years and for many more years to come.
