This is SO exciting! Thanks to you and your husband I now have fabulous resources! I can't wait to look at all of the material and information! Much appreciated, I know it will be outstanding. - Genevieve
Thanks, Jessica. Our son just began serving about 3 weeks ago! What a blessing this will be to him.
JessicaThought you might be interested in an OOP book I have, 'Hail! The Altar Boy - Rev David E Rosage', written for parents of altar servers, but I think the stories inspiring and simple enough for children to appreciate.
Thank you Erin! I will have to see if I can find a copy! It is written by the same author as one of the books our 11 year old received in his Easter Basket this year: Letters to an Altar Boy
What an excellent article by your husband! I wonder why people can't see that it doesn't make sense to have alter girls -(mini- priestesses) it takes away the boys' pride in doing this special job! I think many more boys would be alter boys if there weren't girls on the alter! I don't even like my boys seeing it when there are girls on the alter.
Jessica, I'm wondering if you have had any experience with the R.J. Toomey vs. the Abbey brand of surplices/cassocks regarding quality and design?I would like to order some soon but have to order sight unseen as I live in Australia. Many thanks!
I think my husband prefers the R.J. Toomey (that is what he owns) but our boys have used the Abbey brand when serving, which is what the local historic Church owns. I think either brand would be great.
Thanks Jessica, much appreciated!
