Your scribe once again was omitted from the guest list of a major celebration by FPs, but was able to obtain a report from his emissary, Bert D’Agostino.. He writes as follows:-
Gerry and Monica ( Barry )Minchella celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary at Dunfermline Golf Club on Saturday night (23 March ) and kindly invited me along. I had a great night meeting Peter Barry and Chris Barry again and Dominic and Ann Minchella, Gerry’s brother and sister,who I hadn’t seen in many years. Also there was Mike Ashley so the evening became a bit like memory lane.
I intend to make an effort to get “my lot” to the reunion in September including my brother Gerry, Gerry & Dominic, Mike Ashley, Phil Doherty, Frank Strathie, Laurie Demarco, Jim Barratt and hopefully the Pope (Ally Lawson)
Still awaiting e-mail changes from Donald Cormack, George McGuire, Paul Hogarth, Joseph McQuade.
Recently heard from Andy Marjoribanks, who wrote as follows:-
Failing that, if you want something a bit more high brow, I make a short drunken appearance as a Scottish football supporter in Melvyn Bragg's "Written Britain" on ITV1 at 10.45pm on Sunday 27 April.
Unless you really love watching the above programmes, it will probably be best to just record them and fast forward to the relevant parts.
Cheers for now
Another Scotus thesbian.
The former Brother, Dominic Hyland, has been most helpful in gathering information about the school. We now have a full list of all Brothers who taught at the school, the years they were there, and what became of them (some details missing). It is hoped to put this list on the web soon.
We also received a book written by Dominic, a History of the English Province Schools of the Christian Brothers, which includes a chapter on Scotus. We have his permission to copy that chapter, and, again, this will be put on the web.
Joe Barry recently contacted us with the following information:-
Following recent pronouncements by Pope Benedict, extolling the virtues of the old Latin Mass, I thought Scotians might be interested to know that the Latin (Tridentine) Mass is celebrated every weekend in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Whether you are a lapsed Catholic with a little flame of faith still burning or are still practising but are a little curious or nostalgic to see the old Mass again, why not come and see it for yourself.
