Our thanks go to Dolly Lloyd for providing this web page with a photograph, picturing parishioners of St Alphonsus Church on a 'days outing'. We welcome hearing from readers who may be able to place a name to a face and tell us more about the outing.
Dear Scottie Press, This is my First Holy Communion photograph, taken on 29th May 1954 at St Alphonsus. This group were the first children in the new infants school in Great Mersey Street. Our teachers name was Miss O'Connor and the head teacher was Sister Louise. Father Winder was a regular visitor to our new school. Notice how many girls were in the class and that was only the girls. We were all born un 1946/47. Some of the names on the photo were Eileen Dempsey, Joan Lloyd, Irene Furlong, Marie McFarland, Margaret Ryan, Helen Riely, Helen Whitingham, Mary Motrom, Vera O'Toole, Frances Murphy, Rose Moore, Ann Murphy, and myself Mary Molloy. I hope the photo will bring back memories to those pictured.
We thank Margaret Bibby for sending these photographs of St Alphonsus Parish.
