Our Question of the Week was submitted by a CatholicMom.com reader.
My son is an altar server in our parish, but a few times he’s come close to fainting because of the hot weather and altar-server robe. I’ve tried making sure he’s well-hydrated and that he wears light clothing under the robe, but this hasn’t helped. He is uncomfortable and upset about it, and feels like he wants to quit.
I don’t want him to quit altar serving. What can I do to help him through this?
