“Blessed be God the Father,
and the Only Begotten Son of God,
and also the Holy Spirit,
for he has shown us his merciful love.” (Entr. Antiphon)
Snippets of St Mary’s History (cont.)
THREE MAJOR ACHIEVEMENTS (1928-1930)
Father Bonnar’s short period at Corowa were years of activity; three examples might be given:
- The Women’s Sacred Heart Sodality was flourishing, the prefects of the ten guilds being: Lily Burke, Mrs Teresa Quinn, Mrs Regan, Theresa Kelly, Marjorie Parkin, Mrs P Gavin, Mrs O’Leary, Patty Kelly, Mary Rogers and Cecilia McDonald.
- Prompted by Father Bonnar, a Branch of the St Vincent De Paul Society was formed. The first meeting was held on September 22, 1929, after 10.00am Mass. The first office-bearers were: President, Mr P Ford, commission Agent; Vice-president, J P Leahy, Storekeeper; Secretary, F Baker, School Teacher; Treasurer, J O’Connor, Traveler (i.e. Travelling Salesman).
The members of the first branch were:
T Kelly, Retired; E Lawby, Storekeeper; E J Byrne, Farmer; J Conroy, Farmer; M Ryan, Manager; L Buggy, Manager; W Skehan, Farmer; T Flannagan, Farmer; J Nolan, Farmer; T Tenney, Farmer; W Doyle, Farmer; J A Naughtin, Farmer; J Seymour, Agent; Thos Kelly, Hotelkeeper; W Conroy, Farmer; A Kingston, Farmer; H H Cavanagh, Builder; G Leapord, Farmer; J Knight, Farmer; J Phibbs, Cordial Manufacturer; J P Hurley, Doctor; J Squires, Undertaker; J Blake, Business Manager; T Howell, Postal Official; W Conroy, Farmer.
- It must be said, however, that the most outstanding event of Father Bonnar’s time at Corowa was the second visit to the parish of the great Archbishop of Melbourne, the Most reverend Dr Mannix.
