News & Happenings

Giving Thanks

Our Fall has been full of things to give thanks for! Neighbors in our sewing group all made aprons for Thanksgiving, our crocheting class is growing, and volunteers from near and far have joined us to build community by doing everything from helping to teach English to constructing and filling new garden beds. What a season to give thanks for our many blessings!

Falling into Fall!

As the weather turns cooler and the sunlight gets a little dimmer, the Sisters of Saint Joseph Neighborhood Center is shining a light for all to see. October marks the beginning of a new semester of programming, including newly added Sewing, Crocheting, and Computer classes as well as the return of English classes (now during the day and evening) and Neighborhood Prayer group. As always, the Food Pantry continues to thrive and feed all those in need!

We've been blessed!

June 1, 2019 marked the dedication and blessing of the Sisters of Saint Joseph Neighborhood Center. The day was filled with joy and gratitude for the many people that have helped to get us to this point. Work on the Center will continue throughout the summer and programming will be in full force this fall!

Our Fall 2018 English Classes have come to a close! All three levels of classes came together to celebrate the successful completion of the semester. Many students will continue in the classes, which begin again in January, and we are registering new students now. Thanks to our wonderful teachers and volunteers who are making this program possible.
