Mrs. Susan Gold a former teacher at St. Mary’s School got a wonderful surprise at Sunday’s 9:30 Mass. A young boy she taught in 2nd grade was now celebrating Mass. Mrs. Gold said, “Oh my gosh, the memories of these little kids who’d practice Mass and then here he is.” She’s talking about Fr. Matt Rolling whom she taught back in 1989-90. She was teaching him and getting him ready for his First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Now he’s standing on the altar wearing a priest’s vestments. Mrs. Gold says, “You never know do you?” She was so happy to see him again while he is on break from studying in Rome. He’s been there two years and has three to go. After Fr. Matt completes his studies and receives a Doctorate in Philosophy he will come back to Nebraska to teach philosophy at St. Gregory the Great Seminary in Seward.
