Missionary priests help Hispanics in Mississippi Delta
GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - Catholic priests known as Redemptorists have spent five years expanding outreach to Hispanic residents in the Mississippi Delta. The missionaries are moving away for other assignments. They came to train lay people, priests and others to provide opportunities for worship and support. They helped establish a Hispanic ministry at Our Lady of Victory parish in Cleveland, Mississippi. They have also worked with families on immigration issues. One of the priests is moving to Canada. The others are moving to different parts of the United States.
