Fall Festival Tithe Spotlight
This week, the spotlight shines on the East Side Learning Center in St. Paul. An educational partnership with the School Sisters of Notre Dame, the mission of this ministry is to unlock the potential of children through the foundation of reading. It is far better to help kids get a good start on reading rather than working on catching up later, so the center provides support and mentoring to kids at risk of falling behind. With five different tutoring sites, over 300 children are tutored every day, all made possible through the generosity of so many, including you!
This past year, your merry-making at the Fall Festival led to a grant to this amazing work of mercy and justice. Our Justice and Outreach Commission is now asking for ideas. Are there organizations you know about who could use a small grant to help them with their work? You can suggest grantees by sending a note to Suzanne Bernet at . Make sure to mark your calendars to join us at this year’s Festival on September 15-17. See you there!
