black and white photo of a catholic mass
Fr. Schneider Presiding

This is a photo I took when I was in grade school at St Monica’s in Milwaukee. It was the 1970s and every boy was expected to put some time into being an alter boy. No girls were allowed at this time to fill that duty.

It was interesting to be a part of what happened behind the scenes at mass. I am sure there were many girls who were really curious about what went on back there.

This photo was taken from a hallway through a window that looked onto the alter.
