These past few months have been full. Sisters Denise and Agnes and Oscar Noriega have moved on for various reasons. Their input and dedication to the center and participants is missed. We have been blessed by having Linda and Mike Baksic, Dan Fernandez, Sr. Genevieve Cunningham, Cathy Galle, and Sr. Finbarr come on board, Each brings a special gift and talent with them.
Our Fall raffle was a success. Participants took responsibility for it and did a great job!
We are blessed with having two groups of students from Our Lady of the Lake University with us. The first group is from the Catholic Imagination Class and are volunteering as teaching assistants. The second group has taken on the task of revamping our whole system of registration, class assignment and follow up process. They promise that it will be user friendly. We hope to see the fruits of their labor by Christmas.
Nutrition class has been well attended. Arts and crafts are producing amazing things from recyclables. Tejido and costura continue to amaze with their creations. The students are working hard as they learn English.
Morning Levels 3 and 5 conversation students have ventured out into the community in a “meet and greet experiment”. Of the five houses visited, three of them were present at our Fall Festival. We anticipate our Advent, Posada and Christmas times to be wonderful events and hope to enfold more of our neighbors into them.
