Cyril and Methodius – brother saints

My last stop on the one-day tour of painted churches took me to Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Dubina. I’d never heard of these saints at all until the end of November, when a rambling drive led us to this cemetery near Buckholts, Texas. (Dubina and Buckholts are a hundred miles apart – by Texas standards that makes them “close together.”)

But, anyway, here’s a view of the back of the church looking across to the adjacent cemetery.

PS – In the next couple of weeks, I’ll be visiting another Cyril-and-Methodius church! Suddenly those guys are just everywhere.

  1. Yes, they’re everywhere, including my home town of Corpus Christi. I remember thinking as a child what curious names Cyril and Methodius were.


  2. Where’s that? It’s beautiful. I’ve got to be in Johnson City at 3 on the 24th so I have some wandering time built in…


  3. I left CC 50 years ago and I think the last time I was there was 10 years ago and I’m vegetarian, so I’m afraid I’m not much help. The city is a shabby shell of what it used to be, though the bayfront area can sometimes still be nice.


  4. Melinda, no, it’s not my photo. The church is the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Google that and Panna Maria and you’ll find plenty.


  5. My flickr stream:

    Right now I’m doing documentary photography so you might have to go back a little ways to find anything even potentially interesting.


  6. Hi Melinda,
    We toured the Painted Churches a few years ago. Beautiful is not enough to describe.

    If you are going to Corpus, Here are two really good places to eat in Downtown at the bay front – Railroad Seafood Station 1214 N Chaparral St, and Harrison’s Landing 108 Peoples St # T-HEAD
