Ben Porter, Grand Knight at Saint James Cathedral

LISTEN to this interview with Ben Porter, Grand Knight of the Altars Servers at Saint James Cathedral in downtown Orlando, December 7th, 2010.

 

Born in Central Florida, Ben’s earliest memory of the area is the fresh oranges his mother picked from a neighborhood orange grove. To this day, Ben still enjoys fresh homegrown oranges, they have a tree in their yard, and looks forward to the coming citrus season. A true Floridian, he enjoys the climate of the sunshine state and says, “I don’t own a winter jacket and never will if I stay here.” He has been a member of St. James Cathedral since he was a baby and an altar server since the fourth grade. He says, “I feel like [St. James] has had a huge impact on my life. Without my faith I’d be a totally different person. It really helped establish my morals, my values, how I treat people…” Hear his memory of his St. James School kindergarten teacher Mrs. Burford and his experience of serving his community as a Grand Knight altar server at St. James Cathedral.
