15275Re: [Slovak-World] Re: I am a fledgling new member...
- Mar 5, 2006Thank you so much for all your information. What you have told me really
clarifies alot. I believe that my grandmother was Catholic and changed to
Lutheran for my grandfather which was very upsetting to her family. But one must
understand that she came to America alone at 16 through Ellis Island and
when she settled in Garfield, New Jersey and met my grandfather he was a member
of the church there and she married him there. Whether he was Catholic at
first I do not know but the Trinity Lutheran Church on Palisades Avenue,
Garfield, New Jersey was having Slovak services and since the churches are very
similar in belief he could have just gone to that church or not be able to have
the service in Slovak anywhere else. Or he originally was Lutheran in
Czechoslovakia, I do not know. I would have to talk more to my Aunt Mary who is
92. Do you know if the Sabanos family in Hanusovce are Lutheran or Catholic?
Thank you so much again. Marianne
