In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

News from Ouida Landreth Tomlinson

Saint Francis of Assisi

As many of you know, I am Secular Franciscan. The Secular Franciscan Order is a third order of lay people, founded by Saint Francis of Assisi in the 1200’s along with the first order of Friars and second order of Poor Clare nuns. The SFO is organized by local, regional, national, and international fraternities.

This last Saturday, I attended the Saint Joan of Arc Regional Fraternity meeting in Baton Rouge. This region covers all of Mississippi and Louisiana and parts of Tennessee and Texas. I was elected as secretary to the region. I would appreciate your prayers, as I begin my three-year term, that I may meet the numerous responsibilities of this office and do exceedlingly well for the benefit of my brothers and sisters in our region.
