Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry: Outreach Opportunities

Notre Dame Learning Center


In September 2008, the Notre Dame Learning Center opened in the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry. The Learning Center is sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame to provide an opportunity for non-native speakers to learn English and improve their literacy skills. This program is open to residents of Catherine's Place and residents of Hartford desiring to improve their reading and writing skills, expand their computer literacy, and refresh their math skills. Volunteer teachers are always welcome. If interested, please contact Sister Sheila Palmer at (860) 246-8414.
