why give you any information when you have shown time and time again that you make up your own truth along with the Chinese and other regressives.

Issy, on that altar boy thing. I do recall, it was in about 1964 when I was in the 'Sixth' and the final year of primary school with the lovely "nuns", and again the following year, 'First' year of high school with the fantastic "brothers". There were rumours of funny goings on with "Father" and the altar boys. Again in high school with another "Father" there were once more rumours of thing not being as they should be between the altar boys and the old parish priest. In both cases the church was attached to the school. I avoided being an altar boy for obvious reasons.

Paul,

"... I avoided being an altar boy for obvious reasons".

but did you avoid being an "alter" boy?

We have obviously had different experiences, all of the priests that I knew as a boy were great people as were the nuns also the Marist Brothers, with the one notable exception (as I have mentioned) and he was more of a nuisance than a threat.

There was only one thing that we had to avoid with our parish priest, we had strict instructions to always approach him from the front as his nerves were not the best, he had been a Chaplin and had served in Europe, in the worst of it, in WWI.
When he died the local schools, Catholic, Public and Private closed and the students along with their elders lined the route to the Cemetary.
He was held in very high regard by all, particularly for his work during the Depression.
