On Saturday we piled the whole family in the car and headed over the Wilson Bridge and into Charles County, Maryland. Our Faith Quest adventures continued. We began with a visit to St. Peter Parish in Waldorf. Here Meg amazed us with her knowledge of all things St. Peter. She knew the rooster referred to the cock crowing after Peter denied Jesus three times.
Clare and I were quite taken with this strange looking fellow crawling on one of the pedestals.
After thoroughly touring this lovely parish we headed to Saint Joseph in Pomfret. Unfortunately the church was locked up tight and we were unable to complete the activity guide. We had better luck at Saint Mary Parish in Bryantown. Perhaps the name of this church will sound familiar to any Civil War history buffs out there. Dr. Mudd (who treated John Wilkes Booth after the Lincoln assassination) is buried at this parish and apparently the two met at this parish prior to the assassination.
Our Saturday adventures ended there, but we had a full day on Sunday as well. Those adventures must wait until tomorrow.
