Sunday Stills: Old Churches and Graveyards

The challenge this week was Old Churches and Graveyards. I used Ed’s suggestion and converted my photos to black and white, it was a dreary day anyway. 

I am not sure how old this church is but it is right down the road.

St Pauls Lutheran church Feb 19

This is St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, services are at 8:30 AM…you can see the cemetery in the distance behind the snow bank.  I remember when this church was built..sometime around 1958.

St Theodores Church and cemetery Feb 19 Black and white

This is St. Theodore’s Catholic Church up on the mission..that is what it used to be is on the Pine Point Reservation, which is a tiny reservation that is part of White Earth Reservation.  The church was built in 1917 at the cost of 1,700 dollars, 1,000 of which was donated by a rich lady from New York a Mrs. Theodore Tack.  The church was named for her deceased husband.  On August 14, 1917 the first Mass was offered in the new church for the repose of the soul of Theodore Tack, and the next year on July  01, 1918  the church was blessed and dedicated to St. Theodore:)
