Joshua Torrie, age 8, son of Henry and Susan Torrie, received his First Holy Communion today at the Traditional Latin Mass at St. Paul Church Philadelphia, PA., celebrated by Father Gerald P. Carey. Joshua is the boat boy on the Latin Mass altar crew and serves alongside his dad nearly every Sunday. May God continue to bless this beautiful family and we pray He will keep this pious little boy close to Him always.
