The book covers a lifetime of serving in the Catholic Church combined with the renegade lifestyle of seven lads who became men and dealt with the hysterical consequences of being holy and sinful.

Book Description

The Altar Boys follows the escapades of seven altar boys in the Catholic Church. We begin with them as naughty seven–year–olds fulfilling the almost mandatory requirement to serve mass. As they learn their jobs, we follow them through hysterical mistakes and adventures that include drunken nights with priests, stag nights, marriages and even the things that went wrong at funerals. We travel with them around the world to Rome, Ireland and Rio and see how they always seem to get into bizarre situations.

This book is full of twists and turns and deals with the dilemma of being holy on Sunday and normal the rest of the week. This becomes even more difficult as the boys turn into men and their minds turn into cesspits!

Moments in the book will make the reader realize that piety and madness are very close cousins.
