Matthew Brown greets Bishop Lee Piché after being confirmed during a special Mass April 22 at St. Mary in Stillwater. His scheduled confirmation was moved up to accommodate the failing health of his sponsor, Zach Sobiech, center, who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, in November 2009. The disease has advanced and spread to the point that he is not expected to overcome the tumors that now fill his body.
