Holy Spirit Council of Catholic Women (Macon, GA)

Holy Spirit Council of Catholic Women in Macon, GA contributed $500 to the Sisters of Mercy Memorial Marker Restoration Project. The Sisters of Mercy started the first school in Bibb County, Georgia. They also started Mount de Sales Academy that currently serves students grades 6 to 12. 58 Sisters of Mercy are buried in Riverside Cemetery. The money that the CCW donated was used by Jackson Springs Garden Club and 10th grade students from Mount de Sales to clean the markers and place a cement rose on each stone.
