The execution of Ronald Ryan on 1 February brought condemnation of capital punishment in Father Tucker’s editorial.  This followed a document "Why is There to be a Hanging?" prepared and signed by senior members of the Brotherhood: Father Tucker, Bishop Sambell, David Scott and Janet Paterson  [1]



"Big Bin" Material Aid Store opened by Hon Kay Setches, Minister for Community Services, at 96 Fyans Street, South Geelong in February following an extensive community needs study in 1991-1992 in light of the impact of the collapse of the Farrow Group in 1990.  In its first 5 months of operation assisted 2,773 families with clothing, furniture & household goods.  [2]
