Reading Matters Because our Children Matter

Faith leaders and congregations who have partnered with Richland School District One are taking steps to address the critical issue of literacy as a foundation of a strong education. Building on a multi-denominational program begun in January of 2015, we will continue to pair reading tutors with children in first and second grades. The children will be identified by their teachers as students whose reading will benefit from the extra attention given by tutors.

Tutoring will improve the children’s ability to read. We believe this will cultivate in them a life long love of reading. Join us. Download the brochure to sign up and get trained. Tutoring will begin the week of September 17, 2018.

Our Stories

The Blessing of the Animals,… and Plants, and…

It is that time of year when word of a Blessing of the Animals service is heard in many congregations. Saint Francis of Assisi is known as the patron saint of animals, and his commemoration takes place on October 4. Hence, if a congregation hosts a Blessing of Animals service, they typically plan their event near this date. There is, however, more for us to know about this blessing and about Saint Francis.
