Editor's note:  Brother Philip McEnaney was christened Philip McEnaney, but received the name Brother Harold Philip when he took the Marist habit.  When the practice changed to not assign names at the time the candidate took the Marist Habit, those with both names often moved to a combination of family and religious name.  So he was known by many as "Harry" or Brother Harold Philip.
