It is with great sadness that we read that Cooees From the Cloister is closing its doors after a long run of good humoured insider reporting. Future generations of Church Historians will ask themselves “Who were those masked men (and women)?” We are just thankful for the way in which they brightened up Church life here in Australia. They were the Church’s answer to “The Chaser” team. Will anyone be able to fill their shoes?
Since imitation is flattery, and I am happy to flatter them all they want, I am posting their last, glorious funny pic of the Holy Father:

The crowd applauds you, Cooees! (Tears in eyes as they exit stage left…)
