Cathedral Choir rehearse music for Rome

We Are Family

With apologies to Sister Sledge, “We are family, I got my son, my daughter, my wife and so on, with me.” The unusual aspect of the 22 travelers on the Cathedral of the Epiphany pilgrimage to Rome is how many are related to each other. The singers include myself and my son Alex Fox of Sioux City. Mary Jane Hochderffer of Jefferson, S.D., is accompanied by her daughter Theresa. Kristine Danner and son Michael of McCook Lake, S.D., are traveling. Stacey Schnuckel of Odebolt and her brother Tyler Schnuckel and his wife Amanda Schnuckel of Holstein are on the trip. Finally, Chrissy Martinez of South Sioux City, Neb.  and her mom Teri Rosendahl of Spring Grove, Minn., round-out the “related” singers. Add two Pilgrims, Bonnie Morarend of Dubuque and her brother Jerry Balk of Guttenberg, Iowa, who are Teri”s first cousins, and it’s quite the family outing! — Joanne Fox
