Over 24 years ago, a few women began the Catholic Worker Language School. These women touched a tender nerve in the lives of the poor. Fifteen volunteer teachers teach English to over 55 women. Another 12 tutors work with about 20 children doing weekly homework. Learning a language empowers the poor and gives them choices. This is one way to help the Word become flesh.
