I am very excited by this announcement in my parish bulletin:
Altar Boys need for Mass in the Extraordinary (Tridentine) Form – Saturday, December 19th at 11:00am in the Church there will be an introduction to, and a practice for, serving the Mass in the Extraordinary Form (the “Tridentine” Mass). Out of respect for this form, this is only open to boys, from age ten to young adult. This is a very difficult Mass to server. It involves memorization of Latin responses and a great attention to very detailed actions. There is no firm schedule for offering Mass in this form. Fr. LaHood wants to have altar boys ready when it seems appropriate to offer Mass in this form in the parish.
As soon as I found out that my pastor was interested in offering the Mass in the Extraordinary Form in our parish, I have encouraged him to do so as soon as possible. I have also been helping him with recruitment of altar boys and people for the schola and I can’t wait until it is available at our parish. Until then, I’ll get ready by watching this video, narrated by then-Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen:
