I checked and it's a different priest for the baptisms.

Also why would she renounce her religion one month after marrying in the Catholic church? Maybe what Mona said is relevant because her husband was in the military, 60th Rifle Regiment. As for appeasing family, I think his parents were still in Ireland so I don't think that's it. I still can't figure out why her Catholic father and sister were witnesses at the Protestant marriage and not at the Catholic one. Funny that all her children ended up marrying Protestants too.
