The Learning and Loving Education Center, Morgan Hill, Celebrates 25 Years


The Morgan Hill 2018 Nonprofit of the Year, the Learning and Loving Education Center invites you to join the community of supporters and friends of the Center as they celebrate 25 years on March 2 at Saint Catherine Parish at a Gala Anniversary Celebration.

It was 25 years ago when twenty immigrant women came to the literacy center at the Saint Catherine, Morgan Hill old Parish Hall. These 20 women, their little children, the Sisters of the Presentation and volunteers began the tradition that continues today. The Center continued to grow from 20 women to almost 200 women each year, along with 55-60 children enrolled in the free preschool.

The Anniversary Celebration begins with an 11:30 a.m. Mass in the church with Bishop Patrick J. McGrath presiding; following Mass, the Recognition Celebration will continue in O’Donnell Parish Center with complimentary fare, testimonials and celebrations of the 25 years that have changed and improved the lives of many women of many cultures. Plans and dreams for the future of the Center will also be a part of the day’s festivities.
