Monsignor Forbes loved being in the school - many times you would find him wandering the halls - talking to students and stopping in the classrooms. Sometimes after a game he would show up at Tony's on Weadock Street and buy all the students a burger. In the 1964 yearbook there was this article:
In his short time as pastor of St. Mary Cathedral, Monsignor Forbes has endeared himself to his parishioners by his apostolic zeal. United to his regard for the spiritual welfare of the school and parish is his enduring interest in the material good as well. The school year of 63-64 opened with striking improvements to the school and grounds. Under the direction of the Most Reverend Bishop Woznicki and with the cooperation of the parishioners, Monsignor is now formulating plans for newer and better facilities for the school. Facilities that will be used and appreciated by future generations of Cathedralites.
