Carmella, I also loved The Song of Bernadette and that is why I wanted the name.
I have the DVD of it and also The Miracle of Fatima.

That Teacher I had gave all the class their Confirmation names. ohmy.gif

Father Lyne brings back many memeories of St Joseph`s Chapel. He always walked very quickly and was a bit of a terror in his time. He wasn`t afraid to tell you what was on his mind or ask why you were not in chapel the Sunday before, how he remembered who was there and who wasn`t I will never know. I remember my mother used to stand at the close entrance talking to her friends , which was quite the normal thing to do in those days as the T.V. had only two channels, and any time she would see Father Lyne coming down the street on one of his usual Parish Visits, she would run up the stairs , make sure the house was spotless, put the tea on and put out the chocolate biscuits, anything to keep him happy and subdued, mind you regular home visits by a priest nowadays are pretty few and far between so I have to give him credit for his concern for his parishiners. I also remember Father Martin, Father Burns and Father Osbourne, all from St. Josephs.
I first attended St. Joseph`s Primary School on Manresa Place when I was five and remember a Miss Fitzsimmons and a Miss Hughes. when we got a little older we moved over to the Boys Big School as we called it with the playground on the roof which was just accross the road and adjacent to the Girls Big School whose playground was also on the roof and were separated by Braid Street. I was a member of the 125th Boy Cubs and Scouts Group which met on the top floor of a building at the rear of the Chapel and I believe it was also attached to the Chapel building and a small community centre. AHH memories of times gone by.
All The Very Best.

Father Osborne now retired,stands in occasionally St Agnes Lambhill while our priest gets chemotherapy treatments

Hi Barbera,
Aye, I know Father Barry well, he served mass at both my parents funerals and allowed me to say a few words from the pulpit even though we were just home for the funerals and didn`t attend St Agnes`s on a regular bases, but did so when we lived in Cadder . My wife and I had supper with him, which he cooked and made a grand job too I must say, we had a good discussion about the history of St. Agnes`s. My sister keeps me informed on Father Barry`s health as she still attends on a reguler basis, possibly you may have bumped into each other at some time, she also informed me that Father Osbourn is looking after things at the moment and has also attained some rank within the priesthood. I wish Father Barry all the best of health.


All The Very Best.
JimC

I am interested in finding anyone who attended St Joseph's school with me. My maiden name was Mary Carrigan, have older sister (Margaret, brother Robert and two younger twin sisters Anne & Isabel . I have lived in Australia since 1970.

Our priest was Father Lyne? I think Sister Mary Baptist was the principal then, and my teacher was Mrs Moyse (not sure if this is the correct spelling)
