This home movie from the Morkovsky collection captures an Easter Sunday at St. Leo's Church in San Antonio, where John Morkovsky served as pastor, 1947-1954. Parishioners gather in the church yard and eventually enjoy an Easter egg hunt, and children dressed for First Communion pose in a group for the camera. Note that the film can indicated that this was a St. Leo's Music Festival, which may have taken place as part of the Easter celebration. Do you have any information about this event? Please let us know.
