Franciscan Sisters Begin School Year with Jesus

Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity at St. Francis of Assisi Convent, Greenwood, Mississippi, had many special intentions beginning this new school year. Eucharistic Adoration in our convent chapel was especially meaningful, knowing that Jesus was hearing our every petition and need.

Sister Janet Rose and Sister Kathleen Murphy prayed for our students and their families. As teachers we needed to not only set up classrooms, but in Sister Kathleen’s case to move classrooms. She is teaching first grade this year and because of multiple reasons, needed to move furniture and materials. The generous hands and strength of others helped this happen in a timely manner. At this time, school is already in session and learning is taking place.

Sister Maria Goretti Scandaliato is soon to return for another year with the children. Our Sisterly prayers for God’s healing rays to help her in her recovery were answered.

To get you in the spirit of our school environment, here’s one of the bulletin boards in St. Francis of Assisi School!
