  • We were finally able to take a hi-resolution picture of the Saint Francis mural by community artist, @__matr__. This mural is located in our Family Resource Center in the stair hall between our People’s School and Art Studio Spaces. Inspired by the stain glass windows hanging around the Port Ministries, Saint Francis is surrounded by bright colors and connected to another mural below (to be featured at a later date).

  • Since the conception of the People’s School program, The Port Ministries was never in a position to invest in updating our spaces. The organization has become accustomed to providing programs and services with a shoestring budget. We were humbled that the community and Workshop Leaders used the space and made it their own! Bringing life to rooms that were once rarely used.

Today, we are proud to announce that with the help of sooooo many (Br. Mike, @_rachiepooo_, @hectoad505, @mwritt, @masuhe, and more!), our People School Workshops spaces will be getting a facelift! The beautiful wood floors will get the attention they need, The walls will be painted, the exposed brick will be treated and each room will be outfitted to better serve our community.

PEOPLE’S SCHOOL ROOM 1 will be our meeting room for community gatherings and where we can host our ESL workshops. 
PEOPLE’S SCHOOL ROOM 2 will become our our Art Studio Lounge where artist of all ages can have a creative space and host workshops and projects from our Art Studio Residents. 
PEOPLE’S SCHOOL ROOM 3 will be updated to be our Computer Room so that our After-School Program students have have access to the internet to do their homework and where we can host workshops like @techgirlz.
PEOPLE’S SCHOOL ROOM 4 will become a dance studio space for various activities, host workshops like @yogatolteca, and provide rehearsal space for our partners, @ayodeledrumdance!

The Port Ministries is humbled by the many who continuously bring the People’s School to life and make it a safe space to share their passions and build community!
