Apology from: Frank Green and Terry O'Brien.
Brian Monro (Drusilla 49) recalls: "The death of Vin Scott had me thinking back to that day in January 1949, when Vin, Bernie O'Connell and I boarded the midday train at Bendigo and travelled to Macedon railway station. From there we were taken all apprehensive and sitting in the back of the Marist Brothers' utility to the Juniorate into an unknown future. That evening we were gathered for mutual support at the one table in the refectory. Br Canice with admirable appreciation of our needs split us up for seating with other Juniors. And so began our Marist life".

Maurie was like the wandering minstral having taught in 12 different Marist schools, twice at Bendigo and Broken Hill where he was the Superior from May 1973 to 1975. But his very favourite spot would have to be Alice Springs. He first went there in 1979 where he did studies relating Aboriginal Apostolate. After a Second Novitiate in Fribourg in 1982, and being a member of the Marist Retreat Team from 1985 to 1987, and doing Social Welfare work from Fitzroy for three years, he eventually returned to Alice Springs in 1995. There he became involved in Aboriginal Yourth Work, the Library, bus driving etc until his retirement in 2010. After what seems a life long battle with diabetics and its inevitable side effects, he moved to 'Old Timers' Retirement Village in Alice Springs where he was well looked after by the attentive staff there until his death.
