Re: Legion of Mary

There were steps behind St Johns(opposite the city cemetery) and I think we met in the sacristy up the steps. It was a bit of a joke for us youngsterd and when the secret bag was passed round it was a tossup whether we put a coin in or took one out. As far as I remember we said the rosary too.

Nice wee thread...those were the good old days, newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers --I delivered a newspaper, seven days a week. And got up at 6 every morning.
