Snippets of St Mary’s History (cont.)

“… Father Hickey visited the outstations – Lowesdale, Daysdale, Coreen, Ringwood, and Balldale – in his buggy, usually with an altar boy from the town to serve his Mass.

When making local calls it was Father’s custom to call at the school and ask if one of the boys could be excused; his task was to hold the horse while Father made the Call.

Mr Harold Squires recalled being one of those boys and holding the horse while news of a son’s death on active service was conveyed to a mother.”
