Franciscan Sisters have served in Mississippi since 1997

The Franciscan Sister of Christian Charity, Manitowoc, WI. accepted an invitation to come to Greenwood, MS in 1997. The Friars of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Province in WI had a grade school here and needed Sisters to staff it. Four Sisters arrived In July answering that call to educate the students here at St. Francis of Assisi school. Still today there are four Sisters here working in the school as Principal, teachers and staff.Franciscan Sisters in MS

Since that time our Community has also answered a call to work in Mound Bayou, MS. There four Sisters are also working as Director and volunteers in the St. Gabriel Mercy Center.

Each person has a special gift and calling from God. It is amazing how God uses these gifts in His work in building up His Kingdom. If you are interested in learning more about us, our ministry and our Community we encourage you to check out our congregations main web site. Click here.
