Laurence Toohey

Laurie Toohey passed away at Molloy House Campbelltown, Australia, 05 August 2016 at about 5.45am. And his death was a passing – it was gentle and peaceful; in keeping with the way he had lived his life.

Laurie was born in Eugowra in November 1940. He attended school at Forbes and then moved to the Wangaratta Juniorate. He entered the Mt Macedon Novitiate in 1958, was given the name Basil Mary and professed his first vows on July 2 1959. His Perpetual Profession was celebrated in 1965. He spent 1960 at the Dundas Scholasticate before being appointed to New Norcia. Being a country boy he was quite content to spend most of his ministry years in regional and rural settings: Northam, Griffith, Leeton, Broken Hill, Kilmore, and most recently in isolated locales: Santa Teresa and Thursday Island.
