In most of my research of my mother’s family, I have learned that they all belonged to the Presbyterian church, which is quite common in Scotland. Somewhere along the lines though, they switched to the Church of England (Anglican). On my father’s side, my paternal grandmother (Helen Devlin Farrell) was also Presbyterian whereas my paternal grandfather’s (Robert Farrell) family were all Church of Ireland (which is also Anglican). Although they all had religious ceremonies at their weddings, I’m not sure how involved they were. However, I do know that my paternal grandparents were quite involved in their church.
My mother was baptized at St. Mary Magdalene's Anglican Church in Dundee, Scotland and took her Confirmation at St. Ninian’s Mission in Dundee. Her first marriage was in St. Paul's Anglican Church in Balcarres, Saskatchewan, Canada which her second marriage was in St. George's Anglican Church in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, which is now closed.
