THE TABLET

As an athlete playing sports for Holy Name, you knew you made it when your name appeared in the Tablet newspaper.

Last weekend, Ed Wilkinson from “The Tablet,” the Catholic newspaper of the Dioceses of Brooklyn attended one of the masses announcing “The Restoration of Holy Name of Jesus Church, 135 Years – Fulfilling Our Vision” project.

Ed was very kind to feature a story on the project and we share the link to the story with Container Dairies readers:

“Parishioners have had some strong feelings about how the church looks,” said Father Cunningham. “The renovations that took place in 1981 were never really well received. People were not thrilled about how it looked, and they’ve been complaining for more than 30 years.”

    I was in the Tablet when I was in the 8th grade.. I represented Holy Name in a citywide religion contest..we had to write an essay about Vatican II..I won 1st place for Brooklyn, I remember I got $50 :)…..well, the prize was $50- I am not sure I ever got it…

    I was in in it a couple of times for PAL baseball. Once I was hanging with Eugene Liotta and picked it up to check if my team was in it and I saw his home phone number in it under “HOMES FOR SALE”. We laughed and thought it was a misprint. He went home for dinner and told his parents about it and they confirmed the house was for sale and he moved to Staten Island shortly after that. Good thing for me he moved as I met my girlfirend through friends he introduced me to.. That girlfriend in now my bride of thirty one years….

      Mike,

      Was that the battle out in Bensonhurst? I believe it started in Prospect Park first then when you guys went out there, it continued.

    STARTED IN THE PARADE GROUNDS WHILE PLAYING ST. FINBARS FOLLOWING WEEK PLAYING ST. BERNADETTE’S OUT IN DYKER FIELD THEY GOT US GOOD.

  5. Maureen Rice (Flanagan) says:

    lol, Gene- don’t blame me for THAT! The funny thing is I did not even care about being in the contest- they gave us a test and I got the highest mark- my 8th grade nun, Sister Jean Helen, did not care for me- she announced from the front of the room that, even though I had the highest mark, I was not a fit representative for the school, and suggested I cede my place to the girl with the next highest mark, a “proper young lady” that would do HN proud- had she approached me in private, I probably would have, because being in the contest entailed waking up really early to take the train into the city by 8:30…but, I just got stubborn and said it was my right to go- then she went on a little tear about how I would embarrass the school..so winning Brooklyn was actually quite satisfying….of course, she then claimed that I got my writing skills as a direct result of her teaching- she was really a piece of work…

    Mey Maureen, good for you sticking up for yourself.. she was trying to ride your coattails..

  7. Maureen Rice (Flanagan) says:

    Jimmyvac, it was more about busting her chops than sticking up for myself, to be honest.. like I said, I really didn’t care one way or another, but this nun had a habit (no pun intended) of humiliating students..so, when I saw my opportunity, I just went for it…she did have some sort of book published, she talked about it all the time … and, come to think of it, she threw a book at me once!

    Maureen, it makes me angry just hearing your story. What about Sr. Aurelia, class of 59. I was passive and shy and I used to go home crying during lunchtime every day. Even my mother who was just as passive and shy offered to go up and speak with her. This would have been a very big deal for her to do, to face a nun, and I admire her for this but I said No because I was afraid of the outcome. Anyway, we sat in the classroom according to the marks we received. I always got high grades so I sat in the first row. My future friends, who sat in the last rows and who always got into trouble because of their marks, told Sr. Aurelia out loud, you think Joan Ferraro is so good, she wears pants!! Sr. Aurelia was so shocked she asked if that were true. I thought fast, which isn’t like me, and said only when I go to the park. She said, you go to the park alone! To this day, I hate school even though I tend to do well and my mind goes blank when I am put on the spot!!

  9. Maureen Rice (Flanagan) says:

    I remember the name Sister Aurelia, I think my older sister had her.. I had a wonderful nun in the 6th grade, her name was Sister Regina Consuelo, she was really such a warm, nurturing person..but for third grade- Sister Dominica- and 8th grade- yikes! Those two nuns were just cruel…
