Introibo ad altare Dei, Two new TLM servers go to the Altar
The 19th March was a special day at the Cathedral of Christ the King. Two boys from the parish community of the Cathderal served the Traditional Latin Mass for the first time. The boys only saw the TLM for the first time on the 2nd of December. But from that time Jonathan and Jordan Kayombo have been very eager to learn to serve the "old" Mass. Their mother, Constance, made sure that the boys practiced their Latin at home and very soon they were word perfect.
With the help of volunteers from Una Voce SA, Mr.Peter Jackson (Head of TLM servers at the Cathedral)gave lessons to the boys three times a week from January. Peter had served the TLM as a boy over forty years ago. When he heard that the Mass was returning to the cathedral he quickly got his old missal out and was soon serving again.

The boys will continue their altar server training as well as learn some Latin.
The proud Kayombo family, Jonathan and Jordan are two of seven siblings and from the look on their younger brother's faces they are also eager to serve. Although I think they will have to wait just a few years.
Thanks to the Mattiuzzo family who provided the cassocks and surplices.
