Editor’s Note: Kerry Egan is a hospice chaplain in Massachusetts and the author of “Fumbling: A Pilgrimage Tale of Love, Grief, and Spiritual Renewal on the Camino de Santiago.”

By Kerry Egan, Special to CNN

As a divinity school student, I had just started working as a student chaplain at a cancer hospital when my professor asked me about my work.  I was 26 years old and still learning what a chaplain did.

“I talk to the patients,” I told him.

“You talk to patients?  And tell me, what do people who are sick and dying talk to the student chaplain about?” he asked.

I had never considered the question before.  “Well,” I responded slowly, “Mostly we talk about their families.”

“Do you talk about God?

“Umm, not usually.”

Here is a short story of my family in America. I live in Murdock, Minnesota, population 303, in the same house my father was born. ( I might even be sleeping in the same room he was born in!)

The community was built around the railroad that passes through town.  If you listen closely, you will hear a train in the video.  It’s loud even inside the house.  I’ve heard the trains going through several times when I would call home to Murdock, no matter where in the world I was located!

My father’s family is mainly from Ireland, Scotland and Luxembourg. My mother’s family was from Germany and Prussia. My parented are now buried a short distance from the family house, along with a baby brother, and  many of my ancestors that were pioneers in Minnesota.

I live in central Minnesota in a farming community my father’s family has been a part of since the late 1800s, a colony of mainly poor Irish Catholics started by the late Archbishop John Ireland.  If I remember right, about 2,000 Catholic families were part of the colony in a few settlements in the area.

I read at the Catholic church in De Graff, Minnesota, the people were selected to come to the colony by Archbishop Ireland for the purpose of helping each other  and making a living. (I have to go back to read the description again!)

Also, I am related to many of the people in Murdock.  Oh, we are all related somehow to the pioneers from the colony.

Minnesota was poor in jobs, but rich in land when they arrived.

We are still poor in jobs in Minnesota, with about 175,000 still looking for job in the state, and I am one of them.

One more thing. If my father’s family did not come for the land in Minnesota, I would be saying, I am Canada!  My Irish family first moved to Canada, then to the United States, as did many Irish immigrants.  I’m sure we would be very proud to be in Canada.  Cheer to Canada!

This video was made with the built in camera on my MacBook Air and edited on iMovie.
