Alumni have bravely and honorably served in the United States Military, the Fire Department of New York, the New York Fire Patrol, the New York Police Department, Emergency Medical Services and the Port Authority Police Department.

Monsignor Farrell High School and the Office of Institutional Advancement has expanded the Hall of Fame to better reflect the contributions of the significant number of alumni who went on to exemplify what it means to be a faithful man through sacrifice and service to their community.
