Boat Boy Extraordinaire

Jack Moore served as the boat boy at his father's First Solemn Mass on March 21st.  Fr. Moore and his wife Ellie have three children - Emily, Lilly and Jack.  The children are all students at the Academy.

This was Jack's first time to serve at Mass.  He reminded me of my own son, Nathan, who is now grown and married, but who served as boat boy at my priestly ordination more than twenty-six years ago.  It's a rare privilege, but a beautiful thing, to see father and son at the altar.
