" s'Heerenberg : Noviciate 1957-58. "
Olivia O'Dolan confirms (April 2007) :
" I think that Fr Brendan Shannon is the 3rd from left at front.
Fr Brendan has not changed much since then as he calls with us
from time to time on his way to celebrate Mass in the next parish."
Jan kindly supplied most of the names in this photo—
not an easy job after all these years —but thinks that he has
forgotten one or two German students. I am not able to interpret Jan's
list correctly, and would appreciate your help to put names to faces (and vice versa).
