To the editor:

A funny thing happened yesterday after Mass. I was packing up to leave and a lady approached me. She said “thank you” and slipped a bill into my hand.

I said “thank you” and she headed for the door. Thinking I had just made an easy $10 or $20, I looked down to see a $100 bill. In my over 40 years of music ministry I never had this happen before.

My point is that if you wish to make your music ministers happy, you can do one of the following:

1. Sing louder.

2. Say “thank you” to these people after Mass.

3. (and this is the least important) Slip them a small monetary gift.
