GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) _ Four priests from Denver will soon be calling Greenwood home as part of a five-year Hispanic outreach ministry.
Monsignor Elvin Sunds, vicar general of the Catholic Diocese of Jackson, tells the Greenwood Commonwealth (http://bit.ly/1jYJ7B8) that the priests are members of the Redemptorist Fathers of the Denver Province.
Sunds says all the priests are fluent in Spanish. They will be ministering to Hispanics in the Delta, identified as an underserved Catholic population.
One of the priests, the Rev. Patrick Keyes, said he and three others are to arrive in Greenwood Aug. 14.
The outreach effort will run from Batesville to Yazoo City and from Greenwood to Greenville.
