Ministry that transforms the lives of others

Random Nun Clip

In this Random Nun Clip, Sr. Cynthia Canning, a Sister of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, talks about the transformative nature of ministry at Next Step Learning Center, for people seeking to earn their high school equivalency, transition to college, and build better lives. Sister Cynthia co-founded the Oakland, California, center and talks about how the work transforms both the Oakland residents who need assistance as well as the volunteers who help them achieve success.
