Do you know about...
St. Augustine’s Divine Word Chapel
The brick Renaissance Revival structure is part of the former St. Augustine Seminary begun in the 1920s by the Catholic Society of the Divine Word. It is the oldest Roman Catholic seminary in Mississippi for training and preparing black men for the priesthood. At that time it was the only school in the United States where young black Catholics could receive training. There are two shrines on the property at 199 Seminary Dr. in Bay St. Louis.
