LINCOLN (SNR) – The fifth-grade class of Cathedral of the Risen Christ School in Lincoln joined the Hibler family for a home Mass celebrated by rector Msgr. Robert Tucker April 12.
Assistant pastor Father Justin Fulton concelebrated.
During the Mass, their classmate Joseph Hibler, who has been fighting cancer for the last three years, was confirmed. Joseph’s sponsor was Mr. Jeremy Ekeler, principal. Joe chose St. George as his Confirmation saint because, “He was a warrior, and I need to be a warrior in my battle.”
After the Mass students shared donuts, juice and time with Joseph before completing a walking rosary dedicated to Joseph on their return to the school.
