Marie has been teaching this English class for over two years. There have been times when the class has consisted of one, two or three women. Sometimes in the past, we wondered if anyone would come. However, over the years there has been a steady increase in attendance. On Wednesday, eleven women -- count them, 11! -- attended the class! Not only are they learning to speak English well, but they are developing lasting relationships with each other and with their teacher. We really love showing these photos and telling these stories because they illustrate the ongoing fulfillment of the mission of the Passaic Neighborhood Center for Women -- to provide a peaceful, safe environment for women to meet each other and express their needs.
We have also seen great progress in our crocheting class. Crocheting began in September under the direction of Sister Mary Rose, SCC and continues under the direction of our Associate Director, Sister Elaine, FSP, with the assistance of some of the women who crochet, especially Gloria. We are proud of what these women have learned. They, too, are justifiably proud of their accomplishments. Take a look at this week's photos:
We are so grateful to our faithful benefactors who make each day of this ministry possible.
God bless you for your support!
