      Franciscan Fathers of Pulaski, Wisconsin
      Depressed by the Russian domination of his country, Brother Augustine Zeytz came to the United States in 1872, trying to find refuge in a Franciscan mission in Cincinnati, Ohio. Committed to sustaining the faith of his Polish and Lithuanian countrymen, he eventually secured land in Pulaski, Wisconsin, and, in 1887, the pope approved the establishment of the Assumption Province of the Franciscan Friars. From here, the Friars spread throughout America, eventually arriving in Mississippi in 1950.
      In 1948, at the invitation of Bishop Gerow, the Franciscan Friars came to Natchez-Jackson, specifically Fathers Bonaventure Bolda and Chrysostom Okon. Two years later, Father Nathaniel Machesky arrives. Working diligently, they established their home parish at St. Francis of Assisi in Greenwood.
