Albertus Magnus College is celebrating its 90th anniversary. Each year, as part of our Founders' Day celebrations, members of the Albertus community gather to bring alive the four pillars of our Dominican traditions: study, prayer, community and service.

This year as part of our celebration we will give support to two of the ministries, administered and funded by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, our founders. These two ministries provide adult literacy, ESL and citizenship programs in New Haven and New Britain, CT. Both centers have provided us with a Wish List (click here) of items they could use in their ministry. In addition both centers are always in need of qualified volunteers to work with their adult students. Training is provided at both centers. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact:

Sr. Maryann Lawlor, O.P.
Springs Learning Center
New Haven, CT

Sr. Virginia Bruen, O.P.
Siena Learning Center
New Britain, CT
