After School Program

Does your child need help with homework? A place to hang out after school? A place to play?

Monday through Friday (3:30 – 5:30 PM) every week when school is in session, our staff and volunteers provide homework assistance, snacks, and playtime for neighborhood students ages 6-13. Spaces are available for quiet work time.

 

Halloween Celebration

The Peace Center had a fun time on Saturday, October 28, wrapping mummies and guessing what creepy things lived in the brown paper bags, eating pizza rolls and cupcakes. The main event was a mummy contest, and we had a hard time judging those mummy wraps!

With help of volunteers from Girls’ Hope and donations of tons of candy from Dominican High School students, we were able to give our kids a fun afternoon as a kick-off to Halloween Day.

 Isaiah 43 Project

The Isaiah 43 Project, through Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, works with local parishes and schools to provide parenting skills classes. The Peace Center assists at St. Rita School with volunteers who provide meals, child care and activities for the children.
