Mission Sunday 1966
This photo is labeled on the back "Mission Sunday 1966". I know that at this time my husband was living in Brooklyn, New York. He went to the Sacred Heart School. According to Wikipedia the Catholic Church celebrates Mission Sunday on the fourth Sunday in October to remember missions around the world. Children used to dress in the habits of missionaries and religious orders.
My husband is the little guy on the left, holding the crucifix. He was almost six years old.
