A Woman of Faith
Jackie and John shared the same similar Catholic beliefs, and she was the first Catholic woman to serve at the First Lady of the United States. She was baptized at a church in Manhattan called the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.
In this picture, the two are kneeling together in the century-old church of St. Mary’s. It was the happiest day of their lives. It was 1953, before JFK’s successful campaign for the presidency, before the Vietnam War, and before Robert F. Kennedy was killed. Unfortunately, Jackie would become a widow about ten years later.
