Movie about the family of a female pastor

Saw a movie almost 20 years ago on tv. The movie itself was pre 1960s. I believe it was in black and white. The opening had a shot of duck passing over a small stream and a kid following it. The kid is part of a family where the mother is some kind of church pastor or leader of some kind. She has a relatively large number of kids. Movie was a comedy and a pretty decent one at that. I would appreciate if some one can point me to the right direction.  Movie was in English.

Any time someone talks about a lady with a lot of kids, Ma and Pa Kettle comes to mind. Could it be any of their movies, even though she wasn't a preacher?
Hi VHS_Lives,

Thank you for replying. However, that is not the one I am looking for. The key thing was about the lady being the moral leader of the town instead of the man. I appreciate your try.
