His parents have further plans for Frank: his mother wants him to join the Arch Confraternity of the Redemptorist Church to impress the St. Vincent de Paul Society and Malachy wants Frank to be an altar boy. Frank painstakingly memorizes the Latin Mass and goes to church to apply, only to be rejected at sight. Angela blames class snobbery: "'Tis class distinction. They don't let boys from lanes on the altar."
