I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge (April 2016), where we write 26 blog posts featuring each letter of the alphabet.
X is for the Cross of Churches
I have no ancestors with the first or last name starting with X. I could have shown the X-ray of my back but that’s pretty boring. Yes, I have scoliosis just like my grandmother.
So I thought about all of the churches my ancestors have attended. My dad’s side of the family was Roman Catholic; all the way back.
I’ve collected some photos of churches my families have attended, and some were captured from Google street view.
|St. Mary's Church, Walnut Creek|
I was confirmed and married here.
Two of my siblings were baptized here.
|St. Peter Martyr Church, Pittsburg|
My first communion was here and three of my siblings were baptized here.
|Queen of All Saints, Concord|
My parents were married here and I was baptized here.
|St. Patrick's Church, Butte, MT|
My grandparents, Wm Cyril Hork & Anna M. Sullivan
