Father Ferdinand Troy arrived in New Mexico Territory the same year as the railroad. During his tenure here as a Jesuit priest he traveled on the back of a burro and in an airplane. Had he lived a few more years he might have flown to Rome again in a jet. But he left Old Albuquerque’s San Felipe de Neri the last time in his life one morning by motorbus and was killed that night by a car in front of the Alameda church – the church he and parishioners had built over twenty years before.
