Franciscan Sister march in solidarity

The 30th annual Martin Luther King March found the four of us Sisters out on Avenue I in Greenwood, MS. in front of the St. Francis Center. As the crowd gathered we saw Father Greg, some of our Secular Franciscans, parishioners, and many other Greenwood friends. As Martin Luther King is known to have said; “Love is the most durable power in the world.”


As people came together enjoying the beautiful day and each other, these words of Martin Luther King seemed to have come to life among us; “Forgiveness is not an occasional act, it is a constant attitude.”


“Not only have we come a long long way, we have a long long way to go.” MLK


“Life’s’ most persistent and urgent question is, “What have you done for others?” Martin Luther King


 “Peace is not merely a  distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at the goal.”

A powerful message from Dr. Martin Luther King to carry with us as we remember the meaning of his life and death. 


  1. As we gather together we always feel a sense of pain as we listen to the stories of the people and the longings they have for their children. The end result for us is continually a deeper commitment to work hard at the education here at St. Francis and hopefully bring a better life for our students.
