Faribault Cathedral May History Tour Bob Neslund Jerome and Werner

Here is Bob Neslund, historian giving Jerome and Werner a tour in May in the historical Cathedral, founded with a mission of connecting with the tribes of Minnesota and providing Christian based eduction. Whipple, whose likeness is in the background, was known as "Straight Tongue" to many of the Chippewa and Dakota allies at the time. My family was raised in the 40's- 60's in Faribault and this community was a big part of my education and spiritual growth. I learned a lot about Dakota and Minnesota history and in Whipples crypt below, is where the ashes of my mom, Margaret Glessner Weaver  will be put to rest this weekend, on Aug 1, 2009 at a 1 PM committal service, provided through Rev Henry Doyle of the Shattuck St Mary's Educational Community while Very Rev James Zotalis is on a summer sabattical.
