Greenwood Parishes Celebrate 25 First Communions

The last weekend of April was a big weekend for the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in Greenwood. Twenty five young Catholics, under the care of Sisters Elena and Kathleen, participated in a retreat on Saturday while the parents gathered with Fathers Greg, OFM and Michael C.Ss.R.  The children came from Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish and St. Francis Parish combined with 2 children from Sacred Heart Parish in Winona.
