“When I was in middle school, at the Epiphany, chalk was being handed out after mass. I grabbed a piece and asked Fr. Frank if it had been blessed,” said Matthew Juszczyk, who attended church in Boyne City as a child. “He smiled, performed the sign of the cross over the chalk, and said ‘There, it’s blessed now.’ I still have that little piece of chalk.”
