Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Based upon this entry it sounds like Grandma participated in three distinct activities at church—Sunday school, a catechism class that was preparing her to join the church, and the mention of communion suggests that she also attended the main church service. I’m surprised that Sunday school was held in the afternoon. Maybe there were several churches in the parish and the minister rode the circuit between them, with some services being held in the afternoon.
