A STORY OF PERSEVERANCE: CATHERINE*

“In November of 2020, I had been in the US and Gainesville for 19 years, yet despite academic ESL classes and one on one tutoring at the library, I was still struggling to speak English. That month, I attended the Saturday evening Mass at Holy Faith Catholic Church. While sitting in the lobby, a pamphlet for English Language Literacy classes caught my attention. Shortly afterwards, I contacted the instructor Pat Rayos. My first class was on November 21, 2020.  I’m still attending classes, which I call ‘Happy hour,’ and I am learning a lot, but most importantly, I feel much more confident.”
