From Jesse, a member of the Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri:

"This story is worth sharing. Just yesterday afternoon, as I was closing down shop in chem lab, Andrew Cowan (altar server) walks in and announces he will be running through some server training exercises with Connor Scearce in my classroom. Connor is the ninth grader who "served" (observed, mostly) during Mass in Marcelline recently. Andrew is now a Truman student; Connor is in my ninth grade physical science class. This means that Andrew coordinated a server "workshop" and drove to KHS, on his own time, to make this happen. And for the record: I had nothing to do with it or prior knowledge of it.

I suspect that most of us don't fully appreciate the commitment these young men make when learning to serve Mass. This is HOW and WHERE vocations begin. I've seen it at St. Rose in Quincy, which has been our home in exile these past four years. The Mass of Ages, that which produced countless saints and martyrs, has captivated them. Inspired them. Changed their lives - an "encounter," to use the latest NewEvangelization buzz phrase. Let's all remember to THANK these young men after the next Mass for their humble example, their service to God and the enrichment of our SOULS."
