Greenwood, Mississippi

The Assumption Province began an out-reach to the poor of Greenwood, Mississippi in the early 1950s. This racially divided community has come to be more inclusive through the decades of work of the friars and most recently with the outstanding help of the Sisters of Charity from Manitowoc, Wisconsin. The missions consists of St. Francis Parish and St. Francis School and three other parishes given to our care. The Sisters have made St. Francis School one of the most outstanding grade schools in the state of Mississippi.
