This past year, 30 children from our parish received extra English language and math tutoring through our Education Ministry. Almost 50 teens from more than 12 high schools around Richmond volunteered hundreds of hours to work one-on-one with our students. These teen volunteers have taken it upon themselves to showcase their work and the results of this important ministry at Re-Establish Richmond’s Multi-Cultural Fair this Saturday, June 8, from 1-4 at Dogwood Dell, FREE.
