And One Was a Priest

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter describes Gray’s first parish assignment after graduating from the seminary: Calvary Church in Cleveland and the smaller but older Grace Church in Rosedale, both in Bolivar County, Mississippi. With the beginning of Gray’s life as a parish priest also began a pattern that would follow the family for the rest of his life and was the result of his understanding of the Christian gospel: those who knocked on the door found it opened to them.

Keywords:   Rosedale, parish assignment, Calvary Church, Grace Church, parish priest
