1922 My First Holy Communion

1922 Age 7, First Holy Communion, Holy Name hall – my classmate Jack Mitchell (2nd row at left) was killed that summer, he fell down Riverdale Park Hill and hit his head - 6 pall bearers including myself became priests

This photo was taken in front of Holy Name Church community hall.  I was 7 years old. The priest in this Holy Communion photo was Fr. Flanagan. My classmate Jack Mitchell (2nd row at left) was killed that summer.  He fell down Riverdale Park Hill and hit his head.  All six pall bearers including myself became priests (Jack Miller, Andy Pinfold, Armand Desaulniers, Murray Allen, Vincent Foy, and another who joined a mission society).  Sr Celestine taught us first grade 1921-22 at Holy Name.
