On Wednesday, September 21, the students, faculty and staff of St. Francis of Assisi School Greenwood, MS showed their support and appreciation to the First Responders at a school Mass. The celebration included special blessings for the group of public servants. Mrs. Lewis, the principal had invited State Troopers, the Greenwood Police Department, the Leflore County Sheriff’s Department, the Greenwood Fire Department and Medstat. She said the intention was to counteract the sometimes negative perception of law enforcement. The student body was eager to extend their support, respect and gratitude to the men and women who were able to attend.
Following Mass and the blessing a light lunch was provided for those First Responders who were able to stay.
The students had a moment with the men and women who were off duty at the time.
