Our Lady of Refuge

Social Ministries

Helping our brothers and sisters at OLR

Holy Spirit has partnered with Our Lady of Refuge in South-East San Jose since it was founded in 2011. OLR is now well established and thriving, and we continue our partnership with their community by volunteering to help with their ESL program.


Help teach English as a second language at any of our Monday through Thursday classes. Classes are held from 7:00pm–8:30pm at Our Lady of Refuge located at 2165 Lucretia Ave, San Jose (between Tully and Story Road).

We are looking for volunteers who are able to commit one evening per week to help teach English to very enthusiastic adult students. Lesson plans have been created and each section has a lead volunteer. We need additional volunteers to help the students practice correct pronunciation and listening skills. No prior experience needed.

If you have any questions, please email Jim Gibbons.
