Margaret told me, “When I’d be in the rectory there’d be kids coming to the door asking for Father Tony."
MARGARET: It happened soon after I started work there. And he was standing in the background of where I was answering the door, I mean I just knew that this guy wasn’t supposed to see kids and here he was coming to the door and coming out and meeting them.”
